Bicycle Accident Lawyers in Grand Rapids

We Fight Vigorously For Your Rights

Bike Accidents

Many bicycle accidents result in permanent or sometimes even life ending injuries. In fact, Grand Rapids has the highest ratio of fatal bicycle crashes among all Michigan cities (50% higher than the state average). There are many factors in play, but one of the most obvious is due to the lack of protection a bicycle offers. An experienced Grand Rapids bicycle injury attorney will know the steps to take in order for you to receive compensation for current and future medical costs, lost wages, and other damages.

Payment of Medical Expenses

In Michigan (a no-fault insurance state), medical expenses from a bike injury involving an automobile are covered by:

  • The at-fault driver's automotive insurance policy, OR
  • Through the Michigan Assigned Claims Program

Do I Need an Attorney?

The insurance industry is a minefield. Their goal is to settle for as little as possible, and may do so by acting as if they are looking out for your best interests. There are a seemingly infinite number of rules, regulations, laws and fine print that can affect the outcome of your case. For this reason you should not try to handle you own legal case. A qualified attorney will know whether you have a case or not, and can deal with the insurance company while you focus on your recovery.
