Monroe County Hit and Run Bicycle Accident

A bicyclist was involved in a Monroe County Hit and Run Bicycle Accident in Lasalle Township in Monroe County on Thursday, June 16th. According to police, the bicyclist was riding on S. TelegraphRoad (M-24) near Otter Creek Road when he was allegedly hit twice by different cars. The car that struck him first left the scene of the accident. The second car was able to partially miss him. The bicyclist suffered minor injuries to the arm. Police continue to investigate the accident.

I am sorry to hear about this accident but I am grateful that no serious harm befell the bicyclist.

Fortunately, it does not appear that he was injured. If he was injured, however, Michigan car accident victims have a number of legal rights. He would be able to submit a claim for Michigan No-Fault insurance benefits.  No-Fault benefits would cover his medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care, replacement services, and other benefits related to injuries suffered in the accident. 

In addition, the injury victims could be able to file a lawsuit against the persons determined to be at fault in the auto accident.  The insurance company for the drivers must still cover any injuries. In this lawsuit, he could claim damages and compensation for the injuries suffered in the accident.  The insurance company for the negligent driver typically pays a settlement for this type of case. 

An experienced Michigan car accident lawyer can assist victims with this type of claim.  Accident victims should not speak with the insurance adjuster for the negligent driver before consulting with an attorney.
