Every year, Michigan drivers experience thousands of accidents that are the other driver’s fault. Icy road conditions, reckless driving, and other factors can cause a perfectly good driver to be injured in a car accident.
Michigan’s no-fault law can make collecting compensation complicated, as the ability to sue the other driver can be limited. However, an experienced personal injury attorney at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. can help you sort through the legal issues involved and get you the compensation you deserve.
Drivers’ medical bills are generally covered by their own insurance. If you don’t have your own no-fault auto insurance and are a passenger or pedestrian injured in an accident, you may be covered by the Personal Injury Protection (PIP) plan of a driver in your household.
If you are not covered by anyone else’s PIP, the at-fault driver’s insurance may have to pay for your injuries. Winning compensation in this case may require you to fight the driver’s insurance company, but our experienced legal team can help you.
No-fault insurance in Michigan can also cover reimbursement for up to 85% of three years’ wages. Although the maximum amount changes every year, it’s an important benefit to take advantage of if a car accident has affected your ability to work.
In the aftermath of an accident, insurance companies can be stubborn and try to fight claims. Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. car accident lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve under Michigan law.
In Michigan, pain and suffering compensation is only awarded in a limited number of circumstances. Accidents involving Michigan residents with no-fault insurance are only eligible for pain and suffering claims if the injuries are life-altering and permanent. For accidents outside of Michigan or involving non-residents, pain and suffering claims are not subject to the same restrictions.
If you think that your injury is eligible for pain and suffering compensation, you will need extensive medical documentation proving your disability. However, it is possible to win your case with the right legal team.
