Our Michigan car accident lawyers frequently represent individuals from other states injured in Michigan car accidents. Many of these accident victims are business travelers, vacationers, or just travelling through Michigan to another destination. When an out of state visitor is injured in a Michigan auto accident, they often have the benefit of many laws in Michigan that they may not have in their residence state.
Michigan Car Accident Insurance Benefits
A non-Michigan resident who is injured in a Michigan auto accident while in Michigan may be able to make a claim for Michigan no-fault insurance benefits, even if they live in a state that does not have no-fault insurance benefits and their own insurance policy does not provide for these benefits. This is a tremendous benefit for the out-of-state resident because Michigan No-Fault insurance benefits pay for wages lost from work, medical expenses, and household chores.
Most incredible, there is no limit to the amount of medical expenses paid and these benefits last for your lifetime. For a non-resident injured in a Michigan car accident to qualify for no-fault benefits, there are several factors to consider, including:
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;
