Michigan Car Accident Attorney
Auto accidents are one of the most traumatic events you can experience. They can be caused by any number of circumstances from weather or auto defect to distracted driving or negligence.
No matter what kind of car accident you were involved in, there are 2 primary courses of action:
- File a no-fault claim
- File a third party claim (for pain and suffering)
Michigan No-Fault Claims:
No-fault benefits (also known as first party benefits), are payable to anyone who suffers an injury arising out of the use, operation, maintenance or ownership of a motor vehicle.
No-fault benefits include:
- Payment of bills for necessary medical treatment
- Wage loss benefits
- Attendant care benefits
- Replacement services benefits
- Mileage reimbursement
Although your own insurance is generally first in line to pay in an accident, there are times when another person’s insurance company may be responsible in providing no-fault coverage. Incident facts can dictate who is responsible when the injured person is a passenger, pedestrian or motorcycle rider. In these circumstances, determining the party responsible for paying no-fault benefits can be complex. Hiring a qualified car accident attorney is your best chance at recovering the damages you are entitled to. Speak to an attorney today!
Third Party Claims:
Third party claims are also called “pain and suffering” claims. A third party claim is filed against the person responsible for your injury. If your car accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, drunk driving, distracted driving or vehicle defect, you may be entitled to financial compensation for pain, suffering and scarring associated with the accident related injury. In some cases, you may be entitled to recover lost wages.
Third party claims usually include compensation for:
- Serious impairment of a body function
- Permanent disfigurement
