Our Michigan auto accident lawyers frequently represent Canadians injured in car accidents in Michigan. Many clients are from Ontario, like Windsor or Sarnia, and are injured in the Detroit area during short visits. Others are injured during vacations and business travel and are from the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Manitoba, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island, Alberta and Saskatchewan, and Newfoundland.
A Canadian who is injured in an auto accident while in Michigan may be able to make a claim for Michigan no-fault benefits, which includes benefits for wage loss, medical expenses, and household chores. The entitlement to no-fault benefits depends on many factors, including but not limited to:
1. Whether the person was driving their own car, and if so, whether the person’s auto insurance company was certified in Michigan;
2. Whether the person was a pedestrian; and
3. Whether the person was a passenger in a Michigan registered vehicle, or was a passenger in a vehicle which had auto insurance that was certified in Michigan;
Canadians injured in a United States car accident should contact our firm immediately to learn about their rights.
