What We Do
For over 35 years, we’ve been helping injured motorcyclists across the state of Michigan claim their rightful compensation. Unlike most motorcycle accident attorneys who claim to specialize in motorcycle accidents, but in actuality take all types of personal injury cases, we at Michigan Biker Law, work exclusively with motorcycle accident victims and are specialists within the industry.
As riders ourselves, we understand how the law unjustly treats motorcycle enthusiasts differently from automobile drivers. Why choose a lawyer who not only doesn’t specialize in motorcycle accidents, but who has also never been on a motorcycle? How can you expect them to understand the logistics of your accident and empathize with what you’re going through?
We’ve been riding for decades and have experience with many different types of bikes – we know how they handle and we know each of their mechanical nuances.

Michigan Biker Law was founded in 1987, by renowned Birmingham attorney Jerry Aaron. Being a rider himself, Jerry would often attend motorcycle events and swap meets. It was at these events that Jerry would meet and interact with fellow bikers, some of which he went on to represent in a legal capacity.
Through his meetings with other bikers, it became apparent to Jerry that there were a lot of misconceptions about motorcycle laws in Michigan. In a 1999 interview, Jerry recalled a conversation he had with another attorney, “The agent said your car insurance covers you if you are in an accident against an uninsured motorist, which is not true”, Aaron says, “I explained to him that he was wrong. Motorcycles and motor vehicles are different under Michigan law. These misconceptions and those about bikers in general is what prompted me to get into biker law.”
After representing several bikers over the next few years, Jerry decided to form the Michigan Bikers Association. To this day, there are currently over 14,000 members who regularly receive newsletters and attend swap meets, creating one of the largest motorcycle communities in Michigan. Jerry attributes all his success to the wonderful biker community of Michigan, and their trust in fellow riders. “Suits and ties don’t interest these guys. They want to know ‘Do you ride?’”
