Motorcycle accidents in Michigan must adhere to a specific set of rules and laws. A motorcycle is not considered a “motor vehicle” by Michigan’s no-fault law however individuals injured on motorcycles certainly have many benefits and protections under the law.
Individuals who have been injured while riding a motorcycle can unfortunately sustain very serious injuries as a result of the weight of the motorcycle and the lack of protection surrounding the rider as would be the situation in an automobile. Statistics have shown that a motorcyclist is at a much higher risk of being injured or dying in a motorcycle accident than an occupant of an automobile would be.
Michigan requires an additional endorsement on an individual’s driver’s license to allow him or her to legally operate a motorcycle on the streets of Michigan. The reason is that it is different driving a motorcycle as compared to driving a car. Jim Elliott is a motorcycle endorsed driver and has owned and driven motorcycles on and off road for many years.
