Riding a bicycle is great exercise and good for your health and spirits. Unfortunately, bicyclists in Michigan share the road with bigger, faster vehicles and the distracted drivers who operate them. What starts as an invigorating bike ride quickly turns into tragedy. Michigan cyclists must be vigilant when riding and follow the rules of the road, but even the most careful cyclist is not immune from injury by a car or truck.
These injuries include broken bones, damage to shoulders and knees, closed head injuries, spinal cord injuries, abrasions, amputations, and death. While most vehicle/bicycle injuries are caused by contact, as long as the actions of the motorist contributed substantially to the accident, the motorist may be liable for the cyclist's injuries.
Michigan bicyclists injured by the actions of a motorist must deal with not only their serious injuries, but the challenge of figuring out who is responsible for paying their damages. As if these two problems weren't daunting enough, there is the additional difficulty of getting the responsible party to pay.
Michigan no-fault auto insurance law provides for payments to injured bicyclists, but the laws are complex and often difficult to decipher.
