The car accident lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. represent clients who have suffered serious injuries after a motor vehicle accident in Michigan. This includes victims of auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. The injuries suffered in a car accident are often very serious and can require extensive medical treatment, surgeries, and hospitalization.
Under Michigan law, most people injured in a car accident are entitled to have all of their medical expenses paid under the no-fault insurance laws. It must be medically established that the injuries arose from an accident with a motor vehicle. In many circumstances, the injury victim can receive these benefits even if he or she did not own a car or have a no-fault insurance policy.
The Michigan no-fault insurance law has the most generous medical expense provision of any no-fault insurance statute in the United States. The allowable expense section of the Michigan no-fault insurance statute which provides for medical expenses is MCL 500.3107.
a) Allowable expenses consisting of all reasonable charges incurred for reasonably necessary products, services and accommodations for an injured person's care, recovery, or rehabilitation. Allowable expenses within personal protection insurance coverage shall not include charges for a hospital room in excess of a reasonable and customary charge for semiprivate accommodations except if the injured person requires special or intensive care, or for funeral and burial expenses in the amount set forth in the policy which shall not be less than $1,750.00 or more than $5,000.00.
This provision is broadly defined but includes medical expenses, hospitalization bills, rehabilitation expenses, prescription expenses, and even attendant care services. These benefits are lifetime benefits with no limits. The expenses must be justified as necessary and reasonable.
