Detroit Personal Injury Lawyers Fighting For The Injured

Filing Your Michigan No-Fault Car Insurance Claim

Michigan is a "No-Fault" state, meaning that both parties involved in a motor vehicle accident are entitled to valuable economic benefits from their applicable insurance companies, regardless of who was at fault for the accident. This includes drivers and occupants in a vehicle.

In addition, many people do not realize that pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists involved in an accident with a motor vehicle may also be entitled to receive such benefits.

Our Detroit auto accident attorneys list the steps on how to file your no-fault car insurance claim in Michigan.

Below is a breakdown regarding each No-Fault insurance benefit you may be entitled to:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Medical Mileage
  • Wage Loss
  • Replacement Services
  • Attendant Care
  • Home Modifications
  • Vehicle Modifications

To receive these benefits, a victim must file a no-fault insurance claim with their applicable insurance company. Filing a claim can be confusing and for this reason, our Michigan car accident attorneys developed an essential tip list to help you when it comes to filing a claim.

When it comes to filing a claim, here are three essential tips that are important in securing your Michigan no-fault insurance benefits:

  1. File your application for No-Fault benefits immediately. There are strict time limitations in Michigan for filing your claim with the proper insurance company. You will not be able to obtain benefits if you fail to file within the deadline.
  2. Reimbursable expenses, such as medical bills, must be paid by your insurance company within one year. Insurance companies may use delay tactics or completely deny expenses. If this happens, you must file a lawsuit for those items within one year from the date that expense was incurred. If a lawsuit is not filed within that one-year time period, you will lose all rights to reimbursement.
  3. Never give a "statement" to a claims adjuster or allow the adjuster to look at the car damage without the presence of an attorney. Claim adjusters often try to do this in an effort to minimize your pain and personal injuries, therefore paying less on your claim.

If your auto insurance company refuses to pay your benefits, your only recourse is to file a lawsuit against your insurance company.
