I lost a limb in a Michigan car accident. Who pays my medical bills for the artificial limb?

If you lost a limb in a Michigan car accident, and the physician prescribes an artificial limb for recovery and rehabilitation, your no-fault insurance company is responsible for paying the medical bills involved with the costs of the artificial device(s). Michigan law states that an amputee is entitled to have all medical bills paid, including artificial limbs, if prescribed by the physician. The accident victim must have a physician’s order for the device and then submit the expense to the insurance company adjuster. The adjuster must either pay the prosthetist directly or send payment to the insured to then pay over to the maker of the artificial limb.

Call our office now at (800) 606-1717 if you or someone you know has lost a limb in a Michigan car accident, and the insurance company has refused to pay the medical bills associated for the artificial limb prescribed by the treating physician. As a victim of a Michigan car accident, you are entitled to this payment. Call now to speak with one of our experienced Michigan no-fault insurance lawyers. We will represent you under our No Fee Promise, which means you do not pay any fees or costs until we win your case.
