Understanding No-Fault Insurance

A Close Look at MI’s No-Fault Laws

Our Detroit Personal Injury Attorneys Explain

At Goodman Acker P.C., our legal team assists individuals who have suffered injuries and economic loss due to the negligent actions of another person or party. As a Michigan-based law firm, a lot of the cases and questions we receive have to do with no-fault issues, which our clients struggle to understand or navigate. As a no-fault state, Michigan requires that all drivers carry no-fault insurance so that in the event of an accident, all drivers first turn to their insurance company to cover their own-accident related costs.

While this seems pretty straightforward, many Michiganders experience trouble and confusion after being injured in an accident. If you are having trouble with a no-fault issue, we are here to guide you through the state’s no-fault laws. Let us help you protect your rights under the state’s no-fault laws.

Need to File a Third-Party Claim?

While the state’s no-fault laws require that drivers first turn to their insurance for PIP benefits after an accident, if the injuries you sustained were severe and catastrophic, you can also file a third-party claim. Our firm can help you file a third-party claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance company. By doing so, you may be able to obtain compensation for damages, such as compensation for your pain and suffering, need for in-home care, and lost wages.

If you have lost a loved one in a negligence-related accident, we can also help you file a wrongful death claim for:

  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of benefits
  • Funeral expenses
