I was told by a friend that I could file a mini tort claim? covers anything over a $1000 in estimated damages..

Though I have yet to hear that from anyone else, but I did get a estimate for used parts which will be or are not in production any longer due to the fact the bike is over 12 years old guess that's when they stop making parts? I also had them give a estimate for new parts ones is close to a $1000, one is under a $1000
This makes no sense to me whatsoever. I have to assume this has something to do with the crazy Michigan laws you talked about that say motorcycles aren't motor vehicles. I'm seriously PO'ed on your behalf.

In any other state it wouldn't matter in the least what insurance you had. Heck, you could have NO insurance and if somebody else hits you they still have to cover the damages. At least the medical damages.

I'm sure a local attorney knows your laws better than I do, but it might be worth a couple more calls. This is just ridiculous.

BTW, here's another thought. If the kid that hit you had struck a pedestrian would not his insurance cover the medical bills?

If Michigan law says a motorcycle isn't a motor vehicle, then doesn't that make you a pedestrian?

I'm right there with you.. I just don't get it.. my home was robbed and the police know who did it and never pursed the guy, im in a accident no one cares.. the police are worthless around my neck of Detroit..

All I know is I just bought this bike wasn't a freaking scratch on the thing now I have a $1200 bill to fix, and both insurance companies and a lawyer said I get nothing cept medical bills but I have upwards of 500k plus in old bills so whats one more. I bought the bike July 27th, was legal first week of August, now its not ride able after a month of riding.. and I was just sitting there.. grrrr I hate MI

Yet "republicans" still fight against a competitive health care system. It's not like Obama instituted an NHS... cause that woulda been communism.
Yup. Ensuring the health of your citizens is communism...

Sorry, Trix. Hope you're healing. I lived in Detroit for 8 months. I heard many first hand accounts of dealings with the police. I would not depend on them for one thing. This is a big deal for you but nothing for them. Good luck.

Sounds like Buffalo, you could run a red light in front of a cop, they wouldn't bother to do anything. I think they draw the line at murder, though.

Get your coverage straight

This is just another example of why we all need the highest coverage possible.
