Wondering if you can sue for personal injury damages from a Michigan car accident? The no-fault laws determine when a person injured in a Michigan auto accident can sue for compensation. Personal injuries include pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, and other losses.
Factors That Determine If You Can Sue For Personal Injuries
There are a number of factors that determine if you can sue the negligent driver for a settlement for your Michigan car accident. The factors to determine whether you can sue include:
- Who was at fault for the car accident?
- How serious was the auto accident?
- Did you receive medical treatment for injuries suffered in the accident?
- What type of treatment did you receive for your personal injuries?
- How long did you receive treatment for your injuries?
- Have you fully recovered from your personal injuries?
- Have the auto accident related injuries affected your ability to lead your normal life?
- Do you have a scar or permanent disfigurement caused by the accident?
- Did you suffer a loss of income or earnings?
Types of Michigan Personal Injury Claims From A Car Accident
Our Michigan personal injury lawyers help our injured clients recover settlements after an auto accident. There are generally two types of claims that an accident victim can recover for injuries suffered in the accident. These damages are known as economic damages and non-economic damages.
Personal injury damages are classified as non-economic damages. Personal injury settlements include compensation for:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Fright and shock
- Denial of social pleasure and enjoyments
- Embarrassment, humiliation or mortification
- Scars and other disfigurements caused in the car accident
In addition to personal injury damages, there are also claims for economic damages after a car accident. These include medical bills, lost wages, attendant care services, and household services. These claims are made against the no-fault insurance company responsible for paying personal injury protection (PIP) benefits.
