Our Livonia car accident lawyers recently filed a first party and uninsured motorist lawsuit for a client in the Wayne County Circuit Court. The case arises out of a rear-end accident that occurred in the City of Livonia. The client was a driver in a vehicle that was struck in the rear by another driver. The other driver was driving an uninsured motor vehicle. The client suffered injuries to her neck and lower back, with associated radiation and numbness in her hands and legs.
When a person is involved in an auto accident and the at fault party is uninsured, the victim is entitled to uninsured motorist benefits. Uninsured benefits are based upon the insurance policy, which means that the terms of the insurance contract control the right to benefits. The policy that provides the uninsured motorist benefits can be an auto insurance policy issue to the injured person, a member of the injured person’s family or household, or some other policy. It is always wise to have an experience lawyer immediately investigate your car accident claims, including the review of your insurance contract.
A claim was established with AAA of Michigan for our client’s first party Michigan No-Fault Benefits. These claims were for medical expenses, lost wages, replacement household services, medical mileage, and other benefits. Our client’s auto insurance policy also provided coverage to her in the event that she was injured by an uninsured driver. As such, we filed a claim for her uninsured motorist benefits.
