If you are in a car accident in Michigan, the state’s no-fault insurance statute dictates the range of options open to you. While this statute was designed to make sure everyone involved in an accident can recover damages to take care of the expenses associated with that accident, the law is complex, and talking to a Michigan auto accident lawyer is usually the best way to safeguard your rights. When you talk to an auto accident attorney who understands Michigan’s unique insurance law, you gain insight into which insurance company should receive your claim, what extra expenses you can file to cover, and whether your case qualifies for a third-party claim against the other driver.
Your Michigan auto accident attorney will work with you to make sure you have included all the expenses associated with your accident in your claim. In Michigan, that includes:
To make sure you get the most out of your claim, you need experienced advice from someone who understands which of these categories are often overlooked, and who can direct your claim where it needs to go.
These claims are made against other drivers in cases of serious negligence. Typical scenarios for a third-party claim in Michigan would be when the other person is distracted, intoxicated, or otherwise breaking the law. They are filed against the person whose negligence caused the accident, and they are reserved for extreme cases like permanent disfigurement or disability. If a loved one has died as the result of negligent driving, that is also an appropriate time for a third-party claim.
