Our Michigan no-fault insurance lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C represent victims of car accidents who have been denied payment of home modification benefits from their insurance company. These benefits are available to people injured in car accidents, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and truck accidents. Passengers of buses and other commuter vehicles are also eligible for these benefits.
After involvement in a car accident the victims’ insurance company should pay for no fault insurance benefits throughout the victims’ time of disability. No fault insurance benefits include full payment of home modifications that include but are not limited to the remodeling of a home or apartment with such items as handicapped ramps, additional rooms, wider doorways, and even bathrooms and showers to make it easier for an injured person to live in the home.
Home modification benefits are payable when the injured person cannot comfortably live in his or her current home or apartment because of physical limitations caused by injuries from the accident.
There is no limit on the amount of money that the no-fault insurance company must pay for home modifications. The dollar amount paid for these services depends on the type of disability and the special needs of the injured person.
The dollar amount paid for these services depends on the type of disability and the special need of the injured person.
