Why Bikers Are at Greater Risk of Injury on Michigan Roads

Although the increased risks of riding a motorcycle do not deter those exhilarated by the sense of freedom riding provides, the sad fact is that motorcyclists are over 29 times more likely to die in traffic accidents than other drivers. Sadly, the factors that make motorcycles so pleasurable to ride also make them more dangerous. The feeling of independence you feel when navigating the open road without encumbrance comes with a price because:


  • Motorcycles are much smaller, lighter, and less visible than other vehicles, 

especially at night or in bad weather.

  • Motorcyclists are not protected by the metal frame of an enclosed vehicle.

  • Riding a motorcycle requires more skill and better balance than driving a car.

  • Motorcycles have less stability than cars, particularly on turns or curves,

since they balance on two wheels instead of four. 

  • Motorcyclists are considerably more vulnerable to weather, obstacles, and potholes than drivers of other vehicles.


Add to these factors the many distracted and/or impaired drivers on Michigan roads and you realize why motorcyclists are at greater peril. Nonetheless, regardless of your vehicle type, you are entitled to the law’s protection.


Common Motorcycle Injuries

As has been pointed out, motorcycle accidents are rarely “fender benders.” Even while traveling at low speed, bikers are more than likely to fall during a collision, making contact with the road surface. This often leads not only to scrapes and bruises but to:


  • Road rash

  • Fractures

  • Internal bleeding

  • Organ damage or loss 

  • Spinal cord injuries 

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)

  • Loss of limb

  • Wrongful death


At Nunley Law Group, we are well aware that the more likely our client is to have a serious injury, the more important it is that they have a capable attorney. Our lawyers know how to assess your losses accurately and fight aggressively to bring you the resources you need not only to pay present expenses but also to secure your future and the futures of those who depend on you.


Wrongful Death Claims in Motorcycle Accidents

Michigan roads, though often scenic and inviting, can turn perilous for motorcyclists due to negligent drivers, hazardous conditions, or inadequate safety measures. The loss of a loved one in such accidents is not only emotionally shattering but can also lead to significant financial burdens and legal complexities. 


At The Nunley Law Group, we understand the profound sense of grief and injustice that follows a loved one’s wrongful motorcycle death and will do everything in our power to bring your family the compensation you need and are entitled to under state law.


Services Our Motorcycle Accident Attorney Will Provide

Once you become our client, we will work tirelessly on your behalf:


  • Examining police reports, forensic evidence, and medical records

  • Investigating the accident site and viewing any surveillance footage

  • Handling all negotiations with opposing attorneys and insurance adjusters

  • Interviewing witnesses

  • Determining liability

  • Consulting with experts who can bolster your case


Most importantly, we will fight for your right to damages from the negligent party who caused you harm. Even if you bear partial responsibility for the accident, we will fight vigorously to prove that you were under 50 percent responsible so that we can still recover substantial damages for you under the statutes of modified comparative negligence in Michigan.


If a third party is involved in the collision, we will take steps to make sure that person or entity is held accountable. For example, if a manufacturer or supplier passed along a defective automotive part to a consumer, or a government agency failed to safely maintain the roadway or traffic signals, we will determine and target the appropriate defendant. 


Damages We Fight to Recover After a Motorcycle Accident

No matter how another party’s negligent or reckless behavior caused you harm, we have the intricate knowledge of the law and the well-honed legal skills to bring you a negotiated settlement or positive verdict to recover damages for whichever of the following pertain to your particular situation:


  • Medical and rehabilitation costs

  • Lost income, present and future

  • Property damage or loss

  • Pain and suffering

  • Emotional distress

  • Permanent disability

  • Long-term nursing care

  • Alterations to your home to make it accessible

  • Permanent scarring or another disfigurement

  • Loss of enjoyment of life
