Our pedestrian accident attorneys at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. represent clients who suffer serious injuries while walking or jogging in Michigan. The injuries suffered in a pedestrian accident are often very serious and require extensive medical care, surgeries, and hospitalization. The medical expenses and medical bills related to this treatment can be substantial and overwhelming to the pedestrian accident victim.
Under Michigan law, the pedestrian is entitled to have all medical bills paid under the no-fault insurance laws if the injuries arose from an accident with a motor vehicle. The injured pedestrian can receive these benefits even if he or she did not own a car or have a no-fault insurance policy. The claim can be made against the insurance company for the negligent driver, a car insurance policy issued to a family member in the same household of the injured pedestrian, or through the Michigan Assigned Claims Facility if there was no other source of insurance.
To have these medical expenses paid by a no-fault insurance company, it is essential that the injury victim file an Application for No-Fault Benefits with the proper insurance company. Determining the proper insurance company to file the claim against can be a complicated process so our pedestrian injury lawyers assist our clients with that process. This helps to ensure that the claim is timely filed and all medical expenses will be paid by the insurance company.
