What are Michigan No Fault Insurance Benefits?
Every driver in the State of Michigan is required to have an automobile insurance policy with no-fault benefits. If you were injured in a Michigan car accident, motorcycle accident, truck accident, bicycle accident, or pedestrian accident, you are most likely entitled to Michigan No-Fault insurance benefits, regardless of who was as fault for the accident or if did not even have an auto no-fault insurance policy.
If you did not have your auto insurance policy, you can often file a claim under the Michigan Assigned Claims Plan so you can receive full insurance benefits after an accident.
Michigan drivers injured in auto accidents in other states and out of state residents injured in a Michigan car accident can also often get No-Fault benefits.
Types of Michigan No Fault Insurance Benefits
There are different types of Michigan No-Fault Insurance benefits you are entitled to receive after suffering injuries in a Michigan car accident. These No-Fault Benefits include:
Payment of benefits to have an agency or family member provide skilled or unskilled care and supervision to the accident victim during the period of recovery. In catastrophic cases, these benefits can be received for a lifetime.

Payment of lost wages and income for accident victims who are unable to return to their employment due to injuries suffered in a motor vehicle accident. Payable up to three years after the accident and can be received if a person is "temporarily unemployed" or "actively seeking employment."
