Bicycles are a popular form of transportation in Michigan, especially in cites such as Detroit and Grand Rapids, and college towns such as Ann Arbor and East Lansing. Though seeing bicyclists in these cities is common, car unfortunately seem to have a problem sharing the road with their two-wheeled counterparts. A bicycle accident occurs when a motor vehicle such as a car, truck, motorcycle, or bus hits a bicyclist.
Since bicyclists are not protected by metal on all four sides, they are more vulnerable to serious injuries when involved in car crashes. These injuries may include, back pain, neck pain, broken or fractured bones, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). If you are a bicyclist who has been injured in a Michigan bicycle car accident, you may be entitled to benefits depending of the factors of your case.
