Michigan No- Fault Law and Why You Need A Michigan Auto Accident Lawyer on Your Side
Lost Wages and Medical Bills From Your Car Accident in Michigan
Victims of auto accidents in Michigan are entitled to receive 85% of their wage loss for up to three years, loss of services compensation of $20 per day for up to three years, and unlimited life time medical coverage for the injuries received in an auto accident regardless of who is at fault in the accident. This coverage is usually provided to you by your own insurance carrier, but this is not always the case. However you must act quickly to protect these rights under your policy. The legal rules as to who’s insurance carrier is responsible for payment causes confusion and is often contested. You further need to keep careful records and present proof of your claim in a timely manner to receive full compensation. Failure to make your claim properly and timely can cause you to lose all your rights to receive lost wages, your loss of service payments, and your life time medical treatment for injuries. Further, your own insurance company in many cases will try to terminate your benefits before you have healed or can go back to work. The Insurance Company also often denies and contests the need for medical services that you and your doctor believe are needed for your treatment.
