Motorcycle Injuries Are Devastating

Injuries from a motorcycle collision can be fatal, life-threatening, or severely debilitating and, unfortunately, these injuries are all too common. Motorcyclists know that they face numerous dangers each time they ride and that is why they are extremely cautious when riding. Insurance companies often try to blame the motorcyclists, but we know it’s usually the driver of the car or truck that was not paying attention. If you or someone you know has been injured in a motorcycle accident, call an experienced motorcycle injury attorney at Powers Chapman today.

Injured in a Motorcycle Accident? You May Be Entitled to Benefits

Not every motorcyclist injured on the road is entitled to Michigan’s No-Fault benefits. If a motor vehicle is involved in a collision with a motorcycle, however, the motorcyclist may be entitled to benefits, including wage loss and medical benefits, through the insurance company of the motor vehicle driver. You need an attorney who knows the law and who can help you get the benefits to which you are entitled under the law. The experienced trial attorneys at Powers Chapman know the law and know how to help you. Call today.

Michigan’s Motorcycle Helmet Law

In 2012, the Legislature, with approval from Governor Snyder, modified Michigan’s helmet law so that individuals 21 and older could choose whether or not to wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle. The new law requires those not wearing helmets to have at least $20,000 in motorcycle medical-benefit insurance (similar to Michigan’s no-fault policies for automobiles) and to have held a motorcycle endorsement for at least two years. If you have not held a motorcycle endorsement for at least two years, you can pass an approved motorcycle safety course to waive the two-year requirement. Motorcycle passengers may also opt out of donning a helmet if they are 21 years of age or older and if they have purchased the additional $20,000 in medical insurance coverage.

Of the 128 motorcycle fatalities in Michigan in 2013, 59 of those fatalities were riders or passengers who were not wearing helmets. For useful information on helmet safety and other motorcycle safety tips, please visit the Motorcycle Safety Foundation website located at
