Michigan Bicycle Accident Information

Michigan Bicycle Accidents

When a bicyclist is 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 often happen when a car hits a 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.

If you’ve been injured in an accident while riding a bicycle, our Michigan bicycle accident attorneys can help you get the compensation you deserve.
