  • What are the legal rights of a Michigan resident hurt in an Ohio car accident?

    Michigan residents hurt in an Ohio car accident do have legal rights.  The first claim a MI resident may be able to file is for no-fault insurance benefits. These benefits pay for wages lost from work due to resulting injuries, medical expenses, and household chores for example. 

    The second claim is a personal injury claim against the negligent driver for your injuries.  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.
