Michigan Truck Accident Lawyer
I was in a truck accident, what benefits am I entitled to?
A truck accident can be a catastrophic situation. Because a truck accident involves large pieces of heavy equipment, the collision can cause serious injuries. Fortunately, the Michigan No-Fault Law provides a huge array of benefits for Michigan truck accident victims and their families.
If you are in a Michigan truck 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 truck accident injuries.
If you were a passenger or pedestrian in a Michigan truck accident, or don’t have auto insurance, you are still entitled to Michigan no-fault benefits. 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 hills, 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 truck accident claim for no-fault benefits or pain and suffering compensation. This is called the statute of limitations so it is important to contact a lawyer and protect your legal rights.
