WHAT ARE MICHIGAN'S INSURANCE LAWS?
Michigan is a no-fault state when it comes to insurance. This means that your own car insurance company will pay for most of the losses you suffered in an accident, regardless of who was to blame for it. These are known as first-party benefits or no-fault insurance benefits.
There is a strict statute of limitations of three years to file a personal injury claim in Michigan, which means you need to contact an attorney and get started on your claim as soon as you can. Many times insurance companies work to minimize their costs by denying claims and shelling out less compensation than you deserve. This is one of the many reasons that having seasoned legal counsel can make a huge difference, especially when dealing with difficult insurance companies.
Our Oakland County car accident lawyer can strengthen your claim by:
Collecting information from and questioning any witnesses
Documenting and reconstructing the accident scene
Contacting your insurance company
Examining all relevant medical documentation
Securing all police reports and accident reports
Hiring expert witnesses
With an attorney from the Law Offices of Todd J. Stearn, P.C. on your side, you have a fighting chance when pursuing the compensation you need to move forward with your life.
HOW DOES NO-FAULT INSURANCE WORK?
No-fault Insurance is required by law in Michigan. The policy has three basic parts: Personal Injury Protection (PIP), Property Protection (PPI), and Residual Liability Insurance.
These three parts cover the following:
Pay all medical costs, as well as up to 85% of your income for up to three years
Entitle you to up to $20 a day for household services you can't perform due to an injury
Pay up to $1 million for damage your car does to other people's property
Protect you from being sued due to an auto accident, except in certain situations

Cars that are traveling in excess of 55 miles per hour can cover the length of a football field in 5 seconds; 5 seconds is the average amount of time that a distracted driver takes his or her eyes off the road to read or send a text.
