Getting into a car accident is stressful enough. Let us help you prevent a legal headache.
Have you suffered from an automobile accident? Our experienced team of auto accident attorneys will walk you through your case step by step. We can help you navigate the paperwork and communication with the insurance companies so you don't have to stress while recovering from your injuries. As attorneys who have a long history of managing car accident cases, we're confident we can help you get the compensation you need following your auto accident.
In Michigan, whenever there is an auto accident involving bodily injury there are two types of claims.
The first is a claim against the at-fault negligent driver for any bodily injury you may have suffered. This type of claim is for money damages you may be entitled to as compensation for your injuries. More information regarding this type of claim can be found here.
The second type of claim involves a claim for what is known as Michigan No-Fault first party benefits sometimes also referred to as a PIP claim. Under Michigan’s No-Fault law you may be entitled to receive very important benefits such as medical expenses, wage loss, nursing care, and money for help at home to assist in keeping up the household.
These benefits are typically paid by an individual’s own automobile insurance company. For additional information regarding no-fault benefit claims, please review our no-fault benefit tip sheet.
We recommend that you contact your insurance company as soon as possible following an accident. The insurance company will have you complete an Application for Benefits and gather other important information and provide you with a claim number. The sooner the claim is open with the insurance company, the sooner benefits can be paid.
