Macomb County Bicycle Accident AttorneysBecause of the nature of these incidents bicycle accidents can produce some of the most serious injuries we see. Bicyclists are poorly protected. Fractures and head injuries are common even where the bicyclist is wearing a helmet.
Many adult drivers have a prejudice that bicyclists are generally at fault when a collision occurs. Actually the opposite is generally true.
When we analyze these cases we have to consider right of way, distracted driving, sight distance issues, reaction times and stopping distances. Generally the analysis favors the bicyclist.
Michigan no fault insurance nearly always applies to bicycle accidents. The only exception would be where a motor vehicle was not involved. However, physical contact by a motor vehicle is not required for no fault benefits to apply.
We have successfully handled a large number of bicycle related injuries. These cases include those involving cars, trucks and defective roadways or defects in the bicycle itself.
