Our car accident lawyers frequently represent Michigan residents who are injured in motor vehicle accidents in other states. Many of these cases involve students who attend colleges and universities in other states or those who are vacationing in other states. These motor vehicle accidents include car accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents.
A Michigan resident injured in an out of state auto accident may be able to make a claim for no-fault insurance benefits. This is a tremendous benefit for the out-of-state resident because the No-Fault Statute provides benefits that pay for wages lost from work, medical expenses, and household chores. Most incredible, there is no limit to the amount of medical expenses paid and these benefits last for your lifetime.
Michigan No-Fault Insurance Claims
To make a no-fault insurance claim, the Michigan resident must either have his or her own auto insurance policy or reside with a family member who has a Michigan policy. This type of claim can be made even though the striking vehicle was not insured in Michigan. To preserve your rights, you must file an application for No-Fault benefits within one year of the date of the accident.
The injured person 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 injury victim.
