Motorcycle Accident Attorney Eastpointe, MI

Helping Michigan bikers hurt in wrecks recover damages

Motorcycle riders face hazards both on the road and on their path to justice after a wreck. Just as drivers ignore or mistreat bikers on the road, insurance companies try to portray riders as irresponsible hooligans during legal proceedings. At the Law Offices of Kevin R. Lynch P.L.C., we respect the rights of bikers to be on the road and to recover damages after an accident. Our firm is focused on getting you the justice you deserve and any damages you are entitled to under the law.

Damages available when you are involved in a bike wreck

When someone else’s negligence or reckless driving causes your motorcycle accident, you need an attorney who will stand up for your right to receive compensation. Kevin R. Lynch is an experienced personal injury attorney who will fight for you in settlement negotiations and in court, helping you to recover any available damages, including:

  • Lost wages and diminished earning capacity
  • Past and future medical bills
  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Every motorcycle crash is different. We will help you understand the damages which may be available in your case.

Overcoming misconceptions about motorcycle riders

Insurance companies go out of their way to stress common misconceptions about motorcyclists. They hope to convince a jury that all bikers are irresponsible lawbreakers who are somehow at fault for their injuries. Our team works hard to overcome these misconceptions by showing a jury the actual causes of your wreck. When necessary, we work with accident reconstruction specialists who can determine exactly what caused your wreck and help prove it in court.

In fact, many bike crashes are caused by the recklessness of drivers in cars, who often fail to look out for bikers. They may turn, switch lanes or fail to yield without stopping to look for a bike. Drivers often force bikers into the path of another car or off the road entirely. Sometimes the design or maintenance of a road causes your accident. In these cases, we will attempt to get compensation from the town or government department responsible for your injuries.

Getting you the compensation you deserve

In motorcycle crashes, as in all Michigan auto accidents, the courts determine damages using a system called modified comparative negligence, also called comparative fault. This means that riders have their damages award reduced by the same percentage as that rider’s share of the fault for the accident. In practice, this means that if you are 30% responsible for an accident, you can still receive 70% of the damages, and if you are 40% responsible, you are limited to receiving 60% of the damages. Under Michigan law, when you are more than 50% at fault for your own wreck, you can still recover damages from the other parties involved, but only for your actual economic costs such as medical bills. In these cases, you cannot recover pain and suffering damages. We help our clients understand comparative fault and how it applies in each individual case.
