Understanding No-Fault Liability for Car Accidents in Flint

Our Flint Car Accident Lawyers Explain What’s at Stake

Michigan is a no-fault state when it comes to car accidents. This means that in order to get compensated for your injuries, you have to go through your own insurance first. Under Michigan law, the Personal Injury Protection (PIP) part of your insurance will pay for your medical expenses. In addition, PIP will pay for wage loss and replacement services up to 3 years after the date of the accident.

Under a new insurance law, which came into effect in 2020, Michigan drivers have a choice of how much PIP insurance they want to have. This could be from a minimum of $50,000 to an unlimited amount of PIP insurance. Even though you do have this coverage, insurance companies will fight you on your claim and refuse to provide you with benefits. You then have the option to file a claim in court against your insurance company.

Is No-Fault Liability in Michigan Better than Fault Liability?

It would seem on the face of it that no-fault liability is better. Without the need to prove liability, the claims process often does not involve negotiation with the other parties. However, the policyholder may still have to prove their case. Coverage is not guaranteed. Also, insurance companies prioritize profit regardless of whether they are in Michigan or a fault-based state. As such, they will still try to deny or reduce benefits to injured parties in Flint. 

One way insurance companies deny or reduce benefits is the same here as in fault-based states: they try to attribute fault to the injured party. Michigan follows a modified comparative negligence policy. This policy holds that if you contributed to an accident and were 51% or more at fault, you won’t recover anything. If you were at fault for anything under 50 percent, you can recover, but the value of compensation will be reduced accordingly.

For example, if your auto insurer accuses you of being 25% at fault for the collision, your coverage can be reduced by 25%.

Just because we are a no-fault state, this does not guarantee just and fair compensation for auto accident victims in Flint.

To ensure you get that compensation, you need an aggressive car accident attorney in Flint with a 99% success rate and 150+ years of experience from which to draw insight. Call us at (248) 286-8100 for your free consultation.

Can An Auto Accident Victim in Flint Still Sue The At-Fault Driver?

Lawsuits in Michigan against a third-party driver are rare, due to the no-fault laws. Also, Michigan law limits the types of claims against the third-party driver to those who have suffered very serious injuries. In addition, there is a “liability threshold” that limits the amount you can receive from this type of lawsuit.

Also, if you selected limited PIP insurance after July 2, 2020, you will only be able to file a claim against a third party if your injuries and loss of work amounts exceed that limit. For this reason, it is important to have an experienced Flint Car Accident Attorney look over your policy to estimate how much you can receive from a third-party claim.

As you see, insurance claims in Michigan can be very complicated. So, if you have been in a car collision and were injured, it is in your best interests to, at a minimum, speak with us. We offer a free, no-obligation consultation. Plus, you don’t pay anything unless we win.

With a 99% success rate at Goodman Acker, your odds of winning your case are good if our Flint car accident attorney takes your case.

Injuries that Pose Challenges to Auto Accident Claims in Flint

The injuries that are most likely to pose challenges to your first-party insurance claim are complex, extensive, or delayed injuries.

For example, if you have an existing health condition and that condition exacerbated the injury, the insurance company may try to argue against full compensation. The same is true if, as another example, you suffered whiplash, but the symptoms do not appear until a few days after the accident. In this example, the insurance company may argue that the whiplash is related to another matter and not necessarily the car accident.

Insurers will also not compensate for pain and suffering, or emotional distress caused by extensive bodily injury like:

At Goodman Acker we are committed to you. We do not settle unless it’s in your best interests. We take on these challenges and pursue whatever course is necessary. And we do it with determination and the strength of our shared 150+ years of experience.

Car Accident FAQs

Our Flint Car Accident Lawyer Answers Your Questions

We know you will have many questions for us when we first sit down with you to discuss your personal injury case. We also understand that every case is different. However, many of our past clients come in with similar questions, so we have outlined some basic ones below. These are general questions we get all the time.

Your health and safety are of the utmost importance after an accident. Move your car to a safe place and call the police and an ambulance if you are hurt in any way.

You should take as many pictures and videos as possible at the scene of the accident. Also, get contact information from any witnesses as your Flint Car Accident Lawyer will need to contact them for a sworn statement.

While you should call your insurance company after an accident, do not be very specific about what happened. Your insurance company will use any information they can to deny your claim for compensation.

In Michigan, you have one year to file a claim with your insurance company. In some cases, you may have three years for a personal injury lawsuit stemming from the car accident.

All accidents involving automobiles fall under Michigan’s No-Fault law. So, if you were involved in a truck accident or even a motorcycle accident in Flint, you probably have an insurance claim to file and benefits to request.
