Southfield, MI (PRWEB) August 27, 2009
The motorcycle accident lawyers of Michigan Auto Law have just released a comprehensive online resource center to protect victims of motorcycle accidents in Michigan, on http://www.michiganautolaw.com.
The Michigan Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Resource Center contains time-sensitive lawsuit information, details on unique motorcycle accident issues, motorcycle driver safety tips and insurance.
Steven M. Gursten, head of Southfield-based Michigan Auto Law, wrote the legal material. He is recognized as one of the nation's top experts in serious automobile and motorcycle accident injury cases and insurance no-fault litigation.
Gursten says handling a motorcycle accident case the right way is more important now than ever. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an average of 76,000 people across the country suffered serious personal injury from motorcycle crashes in the past decade. And about 3,900 motorcyclists have died from accidents.
"The motorcycle accident law in Michigan has many exceptions, and is very different than those for car accidents or truck accidents. That's why it's important for motorcycle accident victims, their families and lawyers to understand motorcycle insurance laws, critical deadlines and exactly what happens when someone has been seriously injured or wrongfully killed in a crash," Gursten said.
Gursten received the largest jury verdict for an auto accident and top reported overall settlement in Michigan in 2008, according to year-end verdicts and settlements report by Michigan Lawyers Weekly. He is available for comment on motorcycle accident law in Michigan, motorcycle crashes and catastrophic personal injury. He also regularly blogs on Michigan motorcycle accidents, and the legal issues surrounding such disasters.
