Prosthetic Devices & Artificial Limbs Under Michigan No-Fault Insurance

Our car accident attorneys represent clients who suffer amputation injuries in Michigan auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents.   The injuries suffered in these accidents are often severe and require extensive medical care, surgeries, and hospitalization.   The medical expenses and medical bills related to this treatment can be substantial and overwhelming to the accident victim.

When a Michigan accident victim suffers an injury that leads to the loss of limb, the recovery and rehabilitation process often includes the recommendation by the treating physician for a prosthetic device or artificial limb.  These artificial devices can be a huge expense and many amputees worry about being able to afford them.  Fortunately, the no-fault insurance company must pay for these devices if prescribed by a physician.

Under Michigan law, the amputee is entitled to have all medical bills paid under the no-fault insurance laws if the injuries arose from an accident with a motor vehicle.  This includes artificial limbs and prosthetic devices.  The accident victim must have a physician’s order for the device and then submit the expense to the insurance company adjuster.  The adjuster must either pay the prosthetist  directly or send payment to the insured to then pay over to the maker of the artificial limb.

To learn more about your legal rights after a Michigan auto  accident, you should request our own book written by Michigan car accident lawyer Daniel L. Buckfire, "The Ultimate Michigan Car Accident Handbook." It has been called the best book ever written for persons injured in Michigan car accidents.  It answers all of your questions, in plain English, about your legal rights against negligent drivers as well as your available benefits under the Michigan No-Fault Law. We'll send it to you for FREE!

If your insurance adjuster has refused to pay for your artificial limb or prosthetic device, call us now at (800) 606-1717 or fill in the orange Get Help Now box on this page and press “Click to Send.”   We will call you shortly to discuss your case.
