Passengers injured in Michigan car accidents have several possible claims for their injuries. First and foremost, they are always entitled to Michigan No-Fault Insurance Benefits even if they did not have their own auto insurance policy. These benefits entitle the injured passenger to payment of medical expenses for their lifetime, wage loss benefits, replacement care benefits, and other great benefits. To determine which insurance company must pay these benefits and what you need to do to file your claim, just give me a call and I’ll help you get your claim started. The injured passenger can also sue the negligent driver for his or her personal injuries. This includes claims for pain and suffering, disability, and scars or disfigurement. Interestingly though, the passenger can sue the driver of the car that he or she was in if that driver was the one who was negligent and caused the accident. This is true even if you were riding in a car driven by a family member or friend. Your claim would be against their auto insurance company, just as if you were suing the driver of another car who was negligent and caused your injuries.
There are strict time limitations for making all of these claims and I suggest that you contact our office immediately after the accident so that you can make sure that you do not miss a deadline that will destroy your claims. Our office will start working on your case immediately and begin gathering the witness statements and evidence to prove and win your case.
