Our Michigan no-fault insurance lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C represent victims of car accidents who have been denied payment for replacement service 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 household chore/replacement services that include but are not limited to cooking, vacuuming, dusting, cleaning, laundry, cutting the grass, shoveling the snow, and taking out the garbage.
Michigan's No Fault Insurance Law
According to Michigan’s No-Fault insurance law, an injured victim can receive up to $20.00 a day for household chores/replacement services. This amounts to $600.00 each month during your recovery. You are entitled to these household chores and replacement service benefits for up to the first three years after the date of the accident if you are unable to perform the services yourself.
In order to receive household chores/replacement service benefits from your insurance company, you need a prescription from your doctor for these services, a list of the services performed, and the name of the person performing the household chores/replacement service. A form for submitting replacement services claims can be found here.
Victims injured in car accidents do have legal rights. If you or someone you know has been denied getting replacement service benefits paid by their insurance company after a car accident they have the right to file a lawsuit against the insurance company for payment of this No-Fault insurance benefit within one year of the date on which the last unpaid No-Fault benefit was incurred.
