Detroit Motorcycle Accident Lawyers: Bikers & Passengers

detroit motorcycle accident lawyerOur Detroit motorcycle accident lawyers represent motorcyclists and passengers injured in crashes in Detroit and the surrounding areas. These include injury claims for injured bikers hit by cars, trucks, and even other motorcycles. We also file lawsuits against insurance companies who refuse to pay no-fault insurance benefits, including lost wages and medical expenses. Our law firm will help you win the best and highest settlement for your case.

Our experienced attorneys also file claims against road commissions and governmental agencies for bikers injured due to a dangerous highway or defective road, including pot holes and shoulder drop-offs. There are strict time deadlines for filing these governmental claims so it is important that you contact us as soon as possible after the accident. We will need to take photographs and get witness statements to protect your claim so you should call us immediately to start investigating your case.

Unfortunately, there are many fatal motorcycle accidents that occur in the Detroit area. In cases involving the death of a biker or passenger, we will file a Michigan Wrongful Death Lawsuit on behalf of the surviving family members. These lawsuits get compensation for the pain and suffering of the decedent and for the loss of society and companionship suffered by the family members.

Detroit, Michigan is located in the southeast Lower Peninsula of Michigan.

  • I-96
  • I-275

Motorcycle accidents usually occur because the driver of another motor vehicle is not paying attention to the biker, driving carelessly, or speeding excessively. Distracted driving is also now a major factor in causing these accidents.

These accidents are almost always the fault of the motorist and not the biker. According to statistics, the most common types of motorcycle accidents in Detroit are:

  • Single vehicle accidents
  • Rear end accidents
  • Angled rear end accidents
  • Sideswipe accidents
  • Head on left turn accidents

How Much are Detroit Motorcycle Accident Settlements?

There is no such thing as a settlement calculator to determine the amount of compensation you will be paid after motorcycle accident.  Factors in determining the amount of your settlement include:

  • Who was at fault for the accident and to what degree for each party
  • The seriousness of your injuries
  • The type of medical treatment received, like surgery and physical therapy
  • The permanency of your injuries and whether you will ever fully recover
  • The nature of any scars or other permanent disfigurements
  • The amount of insurance available to pay your claim
