The personal injury attorneys at Giroux Pappas Trial Attorneys, Southfield know that every individual involved in an accident is entitled to compensation under Michigan law. But insurance companies don’t always give you the benefits you deserve. When you need someone to fight for your rights, let us stand up for you.
Michigan is a no fault state, which means that both parties involved in a car accident are entitled to benefits regardless of who was at fault. All drivers in Michigan are required to buy certain insurance coverage in order to receive license plates, which comes with access to no fault benefits, also called Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits.
In theory, that means that your insurance company should be on your side in an auto accident.
In practice, many people fall victim to their insurance company’s policies when they file a no fault claim. If you file paperwork incorrectly, if you don’t provide the right forms or documents, or if you miss a step in the process, you may not get the compensation you deserve.
Personal Injury Protection benefits can include things like:
- Medical bills
- Prescription costs
- Attendant care services
- Loss of income benefits
- Survivor’s loss
- Home modification costs
- Medical mileage (payment for travel to and from medical appointments)
- Family benefits
