Our Michigan car accident lawyers frequently represent foreign exchange students studying at colleges and universities in our state. The number of foreign exchange students, especially from China and other parts of Asia, is increasing every year in Michigan. Enrollment of students from other countries is up at the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, and other undergraduate and graduate schools.
Unfortunately, there have been an increased number of foreign exchange students seriously injured in Michigan car accidents. These include auto accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, bus accidents, and other motor vehicle collisions. The injuries suffered in these accidents are often serious and often fatal.
Legal Rights of Foreign Exchange Students in Michigan
A foreign student injured in a Michigan car accident has a number of legal rights. In most cases, the student will be eligible for Michigan no-fault insurance benefits even if the student did not own a vehicle or have an auto insurance policy in Michigan. These benefits include payment of unlimited lifetime medical expenses, lost wages, and other major benefits.
The injured student can also seek compensation against the negligent driver for the personal injuries suffered in the accident. These claims are in addition to medical expenses and lost wages and include pain and suffering, disability, and disfigurements. These cases often result in substantial settlements for the injured student. In tragic cases involving death, we file a wrongful death lawsuit for the family.
