There are three types of auto accident lawsuits in Michigan that you may be able to file for if you have been the victim in a Michigan auto accident.
Types of Michigan Auto Accident Lawsuits
These Michigan auto accident lawsuit cases involve the following:
First-party: A first-party case is between the auto accident victim and his insurance company for No-Fault benefits, also called personal injury protection (PIP) benefits. In a first-party case, No-Fault benefits are usually paid out by your own insurance company. If you did not have your own auto insurance policy, you may still be eligible for benefits. Call us to find out how.
Third-party: A third party case is between the auto accident victim and the driver who caused the crash. In a third-party case, the auto accident victim sues the at-fault driver for pain and suffering, and excess economic damages. Compensation is usually paid out from the wrong-doer’s auto insurance company.
Mini Tort: A car accident victim can recover a maximum of $1000 for vehicle damage from the driver who caused the crash, via his auto insurance company. This is called a Mini Tort claim. Michigan’s Mini Tort law is not designed to pay for all of your vehicle damage. The purpose is to compensate a person involved in a car accident that was not at-fault, for out-of-pocket expenses resulting from the collision.
