Michigan Car Accident Lawyer
I was in a car accident, what benefits am I entitled to?
The affects from a car accident can be devastating. Lost wages can pile up and the medical bills are costly. Recovery from the auto accident can include months of physical therapy, rehabilitation and sometimes surgery.
Fortunately, the Michigan No-Fault Law provides an array of benefits for Michigan car accident victims and their families.
If you are in a Michigan car accident, contact your auto insurance company and let them know about the accident and ask about your no-fault benefits. The insurance company will provide a claim number to you. This claim number allows you to treat with medical professionals so you can recover from your Michigan auto accident injuries.
If you were a passenger or pedestrian, or don’t have car insurance, you are still entitled to Michigan no-fault benefits so contact an attorney to help get your claim set up.
Michigan no-fault benefits are extensive, and include the payment of all hospital and doctor’s bills, rehabilitation and physical therapy, payment for prescription drugs and medical mileage. Michigan no-fault benefits also include wage loss for up to three years from the accident date and payment to the people helping you with basic tasks such as completing household chores or more personal attendant care.
In addition, if the accident was the fault of another person, you can make a claim for pain and suffering damages. This is a called a third-party claim. Compensation for pain and suffering typically comes from the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
What to do next?
There are time limits in bringing a Michigan car accident claim for no-fault benefits or pain and suffering. This is called the statute of limitations so it is important to contact a lawyer and protect your legal rights.

Q: Am I liable if my car is rear ended in a crash?
A: If you are hit from behind, it’s almost always the other driver’s fault. One of the most important rules in operating a motor vehicle is to provide enough room to brake safely if the car in front of you should stop suddenly.
