Our Michigan no-fault insurance lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C represent victims of car accidents who have been denied wage loss 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 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.
If you are disabled as a result of the accident, you are entitled to receive 85% of your gross pay, including overtime, or loss of income for the first three years following the accident. If you are self-employed on the date of the accident you are still entitled to wage loss and income benefit payments.
If you lose your job due to injuries from the accident, the insurance company is required to pay your wage loss benefits, even if you are no longer disabled, as long as you are trying to find new work after your disability has ended. In addition, if you were actively searching for a job at the time of the accident and submitting resumes, you may also be entitled to wage loss benefits. You must be able to prove that you were actively seeking employment. Payment would be based on income from your last job before the Michigan car accident.
A victim may also be able to receive wage and income loss benefits if they were a seasonal employee and were off work at the time of the collision. If you were about to start a new job and the resulting car accident injuries have prevented you from starting the new position, you may also be able to receive these benefits. Payment would be based upon the income you would have received at the new job.
Michigan wage loss and income benefit payments are paid under the provisions of the Michigan No-Fault law by the auto insurance company responsible for paying benefits. Victims injured in car accidents do have legal rights. If you or someone you know has been denied wage loss benefits after a car accident they have the right to file a lawsuit against the insurance company for payment of these No-Fault Insurance expenses.
