Answers to Important Michigan Accident Questions
Am I entitled to money for my pain and suffering as a result of a Michigan accident?
You are entitled to compensation for pain and suffering if:
- The other driver was more than 50% at fault for the accident,
- You suffer from a “serious impairment of a body function, or a serious and permanent disfigurement or death”
- You did not intentionally cause the accident, and
- You were not the driver/owner of an uninsured automobile involved in the accident.
How do I know if I suffered serious impairment of a body function or serious and permanent disfigurement?
The seriousness of your injury must be validated by a physician and usually includes diagnostic tests. Most importantly, the injury must significantly affect your life.
Courts look to see how long you were off work and what activities you can no longer do. If you continue to work after your accident and your activities are not significantly altered, then you are probably not suffering from a serious impairment of a body function. If you have scarring from the accident, an experienced attorney can evaluate whether or not you have a serious and permanent disfigurement.
How long do I have to file a claim for pain and suffering for any Michigan car accident, truck accident or motorcycle accident?
A claim must be filed within three years of the date of the accident, or if the injury is to a minor, before the minor’s 19th birthday.
