Farm Bureau Insurance is a major insurer of automobiles, motorcycles, and trucks in the State of Michigan, founded in 1949. Farm Bureau insurance also provides life, home, farm, business, retirement, and Lake Estate insurance. They have nearly 500,000 Michigan policyholders and over 450 agents throughout Michigan. A parent organization of Farm Bureau Insurance is the Michigan Farm Bureau (MFB). It is the state’s largest general farm organization with over 200,000 family members in 67 county Farm Bureaus.
Farm Bureau Insurance is obligated to pay No-Fault Insurance benefits to any insured who suffers injuries related to a motor vehicle accident. Benefits include full payment of medical expenses, wage loss, household services, attendant care services, medical mileage, transportation expenses, home modifications, and other great benefits. These benefits can be significant in cases involving serious injury accidents.
Anyone injured in an auto accident who receives No-Fault Insurance Benefits is very aware that the insurance company adjuster has been trained to deny claims and to underpay claims. While the adjuster may be very helpful at first, it becomes evident that every claim is over scrutinized and many claims are simply not paid. Quite often the insurance company unlawfully fails to pay all benefits or terminates the payment of benefits. Other times, the insurer simply underpays the benefits that are owed. Eventually, the claimant will be sent to an insurance medical doctor who will recommend a reduction or termination of benefits.
When this happens, the injured person has the right to file a lawsuit against the insurance company for payment of these No-Fault Insurance expenses. If it is determined that the benefits were not timely paid or improperly denied, the accident victim can also receive payment of interest and attorney's fees.
