Bicycles are a great way to get around Metro Detroit and many other cities in the State of Michigan. The state’s lawmakers agree, which is why there has been a significant push towards creating dedicated bicycle lanes for riders in Detroit. Unfortunately, while bicycles offer an easy way to commute, they lack the necessary protective shield that passenger vehicles possess.
Plus, many Michigan pedestrians and other road users are not yet used to so many bicycles being on the streets and along major routes. This means that bicycle riders in Michigan are at risk of being involved in a bicycle accident caused by other road users. Bicycle accidents often lead to severe injuries and even death because of the lack of enclosure.

Our bicycle accident lawyers are highly experienced and knowledgeable about bicycle accidents and Michigan bicycle laws in the state.

I’d like to thank Mr. Morse and the entire staff for the wonderful job they all did in bringing me such a large settlement. I will recommend this law firm to any and all who may inquire about the matters of personal injury. I’d like to thank Julie and Debbie for all their calls and contributing work, and JoAnn. God bless you all.
Every person I was in contact with made me feel like I was important. The accident changed my life in a second. What do you do? Who can help you? I have no income now. Huge medical bills. Mike got on it within days. It was a true comfort to have them all backing me up.

Various circumstances can lead to a bike accident in Michigan. Our lawyers at Mike Morse Law Firm, familiar with most bike accident types, provide legal representation and advice services to help our bicycle accident clients in Metro Detroit, Grand Rapids, and other cities within the state.
We represent individuals who have been in one or more of the following types of bicycle accidents:
Door collisions –These are bicycle accidents involving passengers opening doors directly onto the path of an oncoming bicycle; also referred to as “getting doored,” the cyclist may ram into the door or try to avoid the accident by veering into traffic and getting hit by other motor vehicles or colliding with pedestrians or other cyclists
Rear-end accident – This happens when another motor vehicle, motorcycle, or bicycle collides with the bicycle’s rear
Right hook collision – This occurs when a motor vehicle or cyclist overtakes the rider on the left and then makes a right turn in front of the bicycle
Bicycle accident at an intersection – This happens when bicycle riders fail to yield the right of way or assume they can cross the intersection very quickly
Right cross accidents –This occurs when another vehicle suddenly exits a street on the right and collides with the bicycle or causes the cyclist to run into another road user
Left cross accidents – This happens when a motor vehicle traveling in the opposite direction suddenly makes a left turn in front of a bicycle that’s heading straight or about to turn left
Sideswiping – This occurs when a vehicle driver does not see the cyclist, gets too close to the bicycle, and accidentally hits the rider while making a turn
Wrong-way bicycle accidents – Riding against traffic can cause serious accidents to both the rider and other road users
The spike in the number of bike accidents in Michigan is largely tied to the increased number of bicycles on the road, as well as the state’s push to create more dedicated bicycle lanes. Unfortunately, people get seriously hurt in some of these accidents.
If you have sustained severe injuries in a bike accident in Detroit, Grand Rapids, or another Michigan city, get in touch with the bicycle accident lawyers at Mike Morse Law Firm today. We will help you seek damages, file a personal injury lawsuit, recover lost wages, and seek damages for other losses you may have suffered as a result of the accident.
Most bicycle accidents in Metro Detroit, Grand Rapids, and other cities are preventable. These accidents occur when people are careless, reckless, or negligent behind the wheel. The same applies to cyclists who do not take adequate preventative and protective measures.
When you choose Mike Morse Law Firm, we’ll work to ascertain the cause of your bike accident. This is a crucial part of our process and may determine if you have a strong case.
Some of the more common causes of bike accidents in Michigan include:
Failure to notify pedestrians when riding on a sidewalk – Riding on sidewalks is banned by certain municipalities in high congestion or retail areas
Pedestrians crossing at the wrong areas – The ideal location for pedestrians to cross the road is an intersection or zebra crossing
Failure to yield to red lights at intersections
Lack of warning lights or sounds at night
Bike merge or turn in front of a motor vehicle going straight ahead or turning in the opposite direction
Driving or riding under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Absence of reflective vest at night
Bad roads with potholes and cracks
Of course, there are many other possible causes of bike accidents, but these are among the most common. As with all personal injury claims, we’ll examine the scenario to determine whether your accident was caused by one or more of the listed causes. Once we identify the root cause, we’ll explore the possibility of helping you file a Michigan no-fault compensation claim with either your insurance company or that of the at-fault driver.

As a cyclist, you are quite vulnerable on the road. Unlike passenger cars, trucks, and other vehicles with an enclosure, bicycles lack all of these. With no protective buffer surrounding the rider, bike accidents can be potentially fatal.
Some of the common injuries seen in bike accidents include:
Severe bruising, abrasions, and lacerations
Head injuries leading to brain damage
Internal bleeding injuries
Broken or injured spine
Depending on how bad the injuries are, the cost of treatment can be moderate to extreme. This is why you need the services of an experienced bicycle accident attorney. It’s not enough to just file a Michigan no-fault claim with your insurance company – you may need more money to cover your medical bills and recover other losses.
You may be able to seek damages for pain and suffering, file a third-party claim, and wage loss recovery. At Mike Morse Law Firm, our Michigan bike lawyers understand the nuances and technicalities involved in bicycle accident cases. This gives us unique leverage that could help you secure your benefits or maximize your settlement.
