A Battle Creek car accident has resulted in a young pedestrian being injured. Makiya Crump, 11, was following a crossing guard at North Avenue and Frelinghuysen Avenue on November 14, 2008 when a car failed to stop and hit her. The girl complained of pain in her leg following the accident.
I am very sorry this accident occurred. I hope she recovers quickly and completely.
Even though as an 11 year old girl, Makiya Crump did not have a policy of No Fault insurance, she can still submit No Fault claims as long as she lives with someone who does in fact have a No Fault policy. Her No Fault benefits will cover the costs of her medical expenses including those incurred for follow up treatment months or even years after the accident, if medical treatment is still necessary by that time. In fact, there is no time limit on how long injured people can collect their medical expenses; the only requirement is that the expenses be for medical treatment that is reasonable and necessary in light of the accident.
