We recently obtained a $46,500 settlement for a nurse who suffered serious knee injuries in a Michigan car accident. The injured nurse made a claim for Michigan No-Fault Insurance benefits with her insurance company. The adjuster underpaid her wage loss claim and did not pay her for attendant car service benefits and replacement household service benefits. Fortunately, she contacted us within one year after the accident so that we could file a lawsuit on her behalf.
There are strict time limitations for filing no-fault insurance claims and the failure to file a lawsuit within one years after benefits are due and owing can be a complete bar to recovering those benefits. Many times, the insurance adjusters will delay payment or underpay benefits with the intent to deceive the accident victim into believing they have been paid all benefits or that they are not entitled to certain benefits. Typically, the accident victims do not even know that they have not received their benefits until they see a lawyer, and by this time, it is often past the deadline.
Lesson to be learned is that if you were injured in a Michigan car accident, you should contact an experienced No-Fault Insurance lawyer even if you are receiving benefits from your insurance company. You might learn that you are being underpaid benefits or not being paid other benefits before it is too late to sue.
