A question we often get here is, “I didn’t have motorcycle insurance. Can I still make a claim for compensation?”

And the answer is absolutely yes. Under the law here in Michigan, just because your bike wasn’t insured doesn’t mean that you can’t make a claim for pain and suffering compensation. You absolutely can. This is different than if you have a car that’s uninsured. In that situation, you can’t make a claim for compensation if you were occupying or driving around your own uninsured car. That’s not the case for motorcycles. You can still make a claim against the at-fault driver for compensation even if you don’t have motorcycle insurance. You still have to prove the other guy is at least 50% at fault. You still have to prove that your injuries are related to the motorcycle accident. And you still have to prove what your injuries are. But yes, you can make a claim, and we’ve been helping motorcycle injury victims over here for over 40 years. Take care.
