Michigan No Fault Benefits Explained

Anyone involved in a motor vehicle accident in Michigan is entitled to Michigan no fault benefits unless they were driving a car that they owned with no insurance. Pedestrians, bicyclists, and even motorcyclists are entitled to Michigan no fault benefits. These Michigan no fault benefits include payment of medical expenses, lost wages, household replacement services, attendant care and mileage reimbursement for travel related to medical care.

How To Receive Michigan No Fault Benefits

In order to receive Michigan No Fault Benefits you must complete a written Application for Benefits and submit it to the proper insurance company within one year from the date of the accident. Failure to make a claim with the appropriate insurance company within one year will result in forfeiture of your right to receive these benefits.

Once your claim is made, reasonable proof of benefits must be sent to the proper insurance company within one year of the date the expense was incurred. Again, if this is not done, you will be unable to receive these benefits. This can be a very confusing area of Michigan No Fault law. The legal professionals at the Mike Morse Law Firm can answer your questions anytime, on the phone – by calling 855-MIKE-WINS – or via email.

The law specifically excludes motorcycles from no-fault insurance coverage unless the motorcycle is involved in an accident with a vehicle, or other special situations. There are too many examples to give here, but a free legal consultation will be provided to you. Call us today at 855-MIKE-WINS or email for free answers to all of your questions.

“28 years after my accident I received a letter from the Mike Morse Law Firm with an information brochure.

Now, more than 28 years after my accident, AAA is paying like they should be, and it’s all because of Mr. Morse’s hard work and expertise.”
