How Do I File A Michigan Auto Accident No-Fault Insurance Claim?
The main steps to filing a Michigan auto accident no-fault insurance claim are:
Step 1: Identify the insurance company responsible for paying no-fault benefits. This will depend on a number of factors, including whether you were the owner, driver, or passenger of the vehicle involved in the accident. If you were a motorcyclist, bicyclist, or pedestrian then there are different tests to determine which insurance company must pay your benefits. This is called the Order of Priority.
Step 2: File an Application for No-Fault Insurance benefits with the proper insurance company.
Step 3: Furnish the insurance company with medical authorizations, evidence of lost wages, and reports from your attending physician to prove that you were injured in the accident and required medical care as a result of your injuries. The report will also indicate if you are disabled from work due to the accident.
Step 4: Send medical bills and information to the insurance adjuster to support the wage loss claim, such as tax records and pay stubs.
Step 5: Send the insurance adjuster supporting documentation of other claims, including household services, attendant care services, medical mileage, and other claims.
Who Is Entitled To Receive Michigan No-Fault Insurance Benefits?
Every person injured in a Michigan auto accident is entitled to receive no-fault insurance benefits, regardless of who was as fault for the accident even if the victim did not have an auto no-fault insurance policy. This means that all drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and bicyclists are automatically entitled to benefits. The only exception is when the injured person was the driver and owner of an automobile that was not insured, even if that person was not at fault in the accident.
If you were an injured passenger, pedestrian, or bicyclist and did not have your auto insurance policy, you can often file a claim under a resident relative's policy or with the Michigan Assigned Claims Plan. This will allow you to receive all insurance benefits after the accident. Michigan drivers injured in auto accidents in other states and out of state residents injured in a Michigan car accident can also often get No-Fault benefits.
Motorcyclists may be entitled to benefits depending on the facts of the accident and if they purchased specific coverage for their motorcycle. Our attorneys will determine if you are entitled to benefits based on the facts of your accident.
