How does liability work in Michigan?
Michigan, like many states, operates under a no-fault insurance program. This means that all drivers in Michigan are required to carry personal injury protection (PIP) which covers all medical costs and much of your future lost wages from your job.
You can only sue the party that injured you in some situations:
- If you are seriously injured, permanently disfigured, or for economic loss greater than three years.
- Even if you are found to be legally responsible for the accident, your required no-fault insurance will pay up to a certain amount of the damages including medical, wage loss and household services.
Get the Compensation You Deserve
When you suffer serious injury in a car accident, you have a right to push for additional compensation to cover the costs of repairs to your property which basic no-fault insurance does not cover. If you were seriously harmed, our Escanaba car accident attorneys can work with you to recover beyond what PIP insurance can provide you with!
