Our Determined Injury Attorneys in the Tri-County Area Have Answers to Your Questions

Our accident lawyers understand that while the causes of motorcycle accidents may vary, motorcycle accident injuries can be serious. Statistics show that up to two-thirds of motorcycle accidents involve a car violating a motorcyclist's right of way before an accident. Furthermore, statistics show that these motorcyclists are up to 37 more times likely to be killed in an accident than a driver behind the wheel of a car or truck.  If you or a loved one was injured or you lost a loved one in an accident, you may be entitled to compensation.

Some people who have never been on a bike see motorcycle riders as "daredevils" or somehow more reckless than other drivers on the road.  We know that it's an unfair perception, but insurance companies may try to deny a claim and argue that the motorcyclist was engaging in risky behavior.

Common causes of motorcycle wrecks in Detroit, Wayne County, Macomb County, and Oakland County include, but are not limited, to the following:

  • Car or truck moves into motorcyclist's right of way.
  • Driver distractions such as cell phones, texting while driving.
  • Reckless driving or speeding by another motorist.
  • Illegal passing or sudden lane changes.
  • Road defects, such as bumps, potholes, gashes, loose gravel or debris.
  • Motorcycle defects such as malfunctioning brakes or tires.
