Our Michigan moped accident lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. have achieved excellent results for client injured in Michigan moped accidents. People on mopeds who are injured in Michigan car accidents have legal rights even if the car that struck them was not insured. There are two potential claims arising out of the automobile accident.
No-Fault Benefits For Moped Accidents
The first claim you have is for no-fault benefits, which will cover your damages for loss wages, medical expenses and household chores. Even if the other driver did not have insurance, but you owned your own automobile which had car insurance, or you were living with a relative had car insurance, you are able to make a claim for no-fault benefits through your automobile insurance company or your relative’s automobile insurance company. Even if you did not have automobile insurance or you were not living with a relative who did not have automobile insurance, you are able to make a claim for no-fault benefits through the Michigan Assigned Claims Facility.
In addition to making a claim for no-fault benefits, if you had your own automobile insurance which had uninsured motorist coverage or were living with a relative who had automobile insurance which had uninsured motorist coverage, you may be able to make a claim against the insurance company for uninsured motorist coverage, which will cover all of your non-economic damages, including damages for pain and suffering and disfigurement. Additionally, you may make a claim for any excess economic damages over and above which you are entitled to receive in no-fault benefits.
