Michigan Bicycle Accidents
When a bicyclist is hit by a car or otherwise injured by a motor vehicle in Michigan, the bicyclist is entitled to certain rights under Michigan’s no-fault law. Although Michigan bicycle accidents caused by vehicles normally happen when the car hits or strikes the bicycle, physical contact is not required for injuries and damage to occur. In most cases, an injured bicyclist is entitled to personal injury protection (PIP) benefits under Michigan’s auto no-fault law, as long as the vehicle played a significant role in causing the bicyclist’s injuries.
