After a Michigan car accident what is the first step to take with my auto insurance company?

The first step after being involved in a Michigan car accident is to call your insurance agent immediately to report the auto accident. You will want to make sure you do this, because your second stop is to file an application for No-Fault insurance benefits, and if you do not let your insurance agent know about your Michigan car accident, attaining these benefits becomes much more difficult.  Filing an application for No-Fault Insurance benefits will preserve your right to payment of medical expenses, lost wages, and other benefits from the insurance company.

There are strict time limits for Michigan automobile negligence cases and it  varies from state to state. To notify your insurance company and file an application for Michigan No Fault benefits there is a strict 1 year limitation. In addition, you must file a lawsuit against the negligent driver’s car insurance company for pain and suffering within three years of the date of the accident.
