There were 1,763 bicyclists involved in auto accidents in Michigan in 2014. Of that total, 1,378 bicyclists were injured according to police traffic crash reports. There were 21 fatal bicycle crashes on Michigan roadways.
The majority of the bicycle accidents occurred during daylight hours, with the peak hours of 5-5:30 p.m. for crashes.

Paying Referral Fees for Michigan Bicycle Accident Cases
We handle all bicycle accident cases on a one-third contingency fee basis. Under Michigan law, we are required to deduct the case expenses from the total settlement amount before calculation our contingent fee. For most bicycle accident cases, we pay the referring attorney a one-third referral fee. We guarantee this fee in writing immediately upon being retained by the client for representation. We also confirm the referral source in our case management software.
Michigan Accident Attorney Referral Review
Without hesitation, I endorse Larry Buckfire and the Buckfire law team for referral of personal injury cases across Michigan. I’ve known Larry and some of his attorneys for years and respect the way they prosecute cases to maximize the recovery for the client. Each case I send to Buckfire gets handled in a professional and ethical matter. As a referring attorney, I appreciate the fact the level of integrity with which the office operates means that the referral arrangement is always honored. For any attorney looking to refer a serious accident case, I would strongly suggest they discuss the matter with Buckfire & Buckfire to ensure the client’s needs are handled and the co-counsel fee is maximized.
