Michigan Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Do You Have A Michigan Motorcycle Accident Case?

Michigan motorcycle accident lawyer Mike Morse understands that Michigan motorcycle riders have a unique status under Michigan’s No-Fault Laws. Motorcycles in Michigan are not defined as motor vehicles and therefore, they are not obligated to carry no-fault insurance. However, the Michigan motorcycle rider is still entitled to Michigan No-Fault benefits if the motorcycle is involved in a motorcycle accident with a “motor vehicle”. This is a good thing for Michigan motorcycle riders, but only if the motorcycle accident is with a car, truck, or other defined “motor vehicle”.

Can You Collect Michigan No Fault Benefits After Your Motorcycle Accident?

If the Michigan motorcycle rider is involved in simply a motorcycle only accident, i.e. if the motorcyclist lays down his/her bike to avoid another accident or hits a tree, then that person would not be able to collect No Fault Benefits under Michigan’s No Fault System. However, if the motorcyclist lays down his or he bike to avoid an accident due to another driver’s negligence, they are still entitled to be compensated for pain and suffering if their injuries meet the threshold requirements as outlined by Michigan Law. It is very important to speak to a Michigan motorcycle accident attorney who is extremely familiar with Michigan’s motorcycle laws and Michigan’s no-fault laws after an accident to make sure that you are advised correctly.

Michigan PLPD Coverage

Although Michigan motorcycles are not required to obtain the mandatory Michigan no-fault insurance, the owners or registrants of Michigan motorcycles are legally required to carry what is known as PLPD. PLPD stands for “personal liability and property damage”. If a Michigan Motorcycle owner or registrant does not carry PLPD coverage, they are subject to criminal penalties and the inability to collect benefits under Michigan’s no fault system. It is always a terrible situation when a Michigan motorcycle rider calls our office after an accident, and finds out that nothing will be paid to them because they did not have the requisite PLPD insurance.

    Starlynn Markiewicz
  • 28 years after my accident I received a letter from The Mike Morse Law Firm with an information brochure. I’m so glad I kept that letter because later on when AAA wrongly suspended my no fault benefits, I immediately contacted Mike. Mr. Morse took my case and did everything he said he would do. Now, more than 28 years after my accident, AAA is paying like they should be, and it’s all because of Mr. Morse’s hard work and expertise.

    Van Johnson
