Our Michigan car accident lawyers frequently represent Michigan residents who are injured in auto accidents in the State of Ohio. Many Michigan residents travel to Ohio for getaways and destination sites, like Cedar Point and the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, as well as sporting events in major cities.

Michigan Residents: Ohio No-Fault Insurance Claims
A Michigan resident injured in an Ohio auto accident may be able to make a claim for no-fault insurance benefits. This is a tremendous benefit for the out-of-state resident because the No-Fault Statute provides benefits that pay for wages lost from work, medical expenses, and household chores. Best of all, there is no limit to the amount of medical expenses paid and these benefits last for your lifetime.
To make a no-fault insurance claim, the Michigan resident must either have his or her own auto insurance policy or reside with a family member who has a Michigan policy. This type of claim can be made even though the striking vehicle was not insured in Michigan. To preserve your rights, you must file an Application for No-Fault Benefits within one year of the date of the accident.
The injured person can also seek compensation against the negligent driver for the personal injuries suffered in the accident. These claims are in addition to medical expenses and lost wages and include pain and suffering, disability, and disfigurements. These cases often result in substantial settlements for the injury victim.
