Approximately 4,000 motorcyclists are killed and another 80,000 injured in crashes every year in Michigan. In accidents involving multiple vehicles, the person operating the motorcycle was not at fault more than 80% of the time. If the person driving the other vehicle was negligent, the operator of the motorcycle and any passenger on the motorcycle may be able to obtain compensation for their injuries.
Injuries commonly suffered by motorcyclists involved in crashes include broken bones, disfigurement, brain damage, spinal cord damage, partial or complete paralysis and loss of life. The need for multiple visits to the doctor, numerous surgeries, expensive prescription medications, costly physical rehabilitation and more can lead to extreme financial pressure. Even worse, the suffering of motorcycle accident victims often goes far beyond their physical injuries, including:
- Change in personality
- Diminished cognitive abilities
- An inability to return to a previous job, or inability to work at all
- Debilitating depression
