Nearly fifty years ago, in 1973, the Michigan No-Fault Law was signed into effect. This law relates to car accidents and other motor incidents wherein a person who is injured can seek and receive a variety of benefits regardless of fault. These exceptional benefits can help you sustain a better life after a traumatic car accident.
These aptly named no-fault benefits may entitle you to compensation for medical expenses, including charges and bills for hospital stays, doctors and other professional care, and rehabilitation to help you recover without the overhanging stress of a future in debt. This lifetime benefit has no fiscal limit, meaning no matter how high your medical expenses rack up, your auto insurance carrier is responsible for the claims. If you ever become disabled as a result of a vehicular accident, you may be entitled to the wages lost as a result of your incident. With the right attorney, you could receive a whopping 85% of your gross income up to three years after the accident to help cover the costs of your lifestyle transition as you cope with significant distress as a result of your injuries. Also included, are simple but necessary costs, like nursing care, prescriptions, other out-of-pocket expenses, and even reimbursement for friends and family assisting in your care.
If in any claim your case reveals the other driver in your accident was no less than 50% at-fault and you sustained a “threshold” injury, which is any injury that resulted in a death, lasting disfigurement, or permanent bodily impairment, you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering through a third-party claim. This type of claim is difficult to prove and often requires legal representation from a qualified attorney. If you have suffered injuries from a car, truck, or other motorized accident, you are not alone. You are entitled to numerous compensations and benefits to support you as you face your new life after the accident.
