No-Fault Insurance Benefits in a Michigan Hit and Run Accident
You can file a claim for Michigan no-fault insurance benefits after a hit and run accident. These benefits include payment of your lost wages, lifetime unlimited medical expenses, attendant care services, and household chores. You are entitled to these benefits even if the other driver left the scene of the accident and you do not know if driver had auto insurance.
If you owned your own automobile with car insurance, or you were living with a relative had car insurance, you are able to make a claim for no-fault benefits through one of these insurance companies. If neither you or a resident relative had an auto insurance policy, you can still make a claim for no-fault benefits through the Michigan Assigned Claims Plan.
Uninsured Motorists (UM) Benefit Claim
You can also make a claim for uninsured motorists benefits if or a resident relative had an auto insurance policy with you uninsured motorist coverage. This claim is for your pain and suffering damages. You can receive a settlement that is in addition to your no-fault insurance benefits under this type of claim.
Most insurance policies require that you notify the police and your insurance company of a hit and run accident within twenty-four hours of the crash. If you fail to provide this notification, your uninsured motorist claim may be destroyed.
