Our Michigan car accident lawyers frequently pursue claims for auto accident victims who are injured by drivers with no auto insurance. Despite being required by Michigan law to have a liability insurance policy, the sad reality is that many people drive their vehicles in the state with no auto insurance. When this happens, the injured person may have a difficult time recovering a settlement for pain and suffering damages.
When hit by a driver with no insurance, it is important to review your own auto insurance declaration page to determine whether you have uninsured motorist coverage on your policy. This is a type of coverage that you paid for to protect yourself and your family members in the event you were injured in an accident by a driver with no auto insurance. Even if you did not have this coverage but a family member living in the same household had this benefit, you may still be able to make a claim. This coverage applies to car accidents, bicycle accidents, and even pedestrians.
Many people do not even know they had purchased this uninsured motorist benefit coverage. It is often sold as a part of the standard auto insurance policy. The policy that provides the uninsured motorist benefits can be an auto insurance policy issued to the injured person, a member of the injured person's family or household, or some other policy.
It is best to have an experienced Michigan uninsured motorist claim lawyer immediately investigate your car accident claims, including the review of your insurance contract. There are very strict time limitations in pursuing this type of claim. Therefore, if you are involved in a Michigan auto accident with a Michigan uninsured motorist, we recommend that you contact an attorney immediately.
