Grand Rapids Car, Motorcycle & truck Accident Lawyers
Persistent Lawyers with a Winning Track Record
Michigan’s state-wide “No-fault” insurance law applies to car, truck and motor vehicle accidents. It can be a difficult body of law for laypeople to navigate. Recent modifications to the law, made in 2020, have changed some of the rules and are still being phased-in. Our attorneys understand Michigan’s No-fault motor vehicle law and can help you understand your right to recovery and your right to sue.
Michigan law allocates your rights between a claim against the No-fault insurer, what is called a ‘First party’ claim, and a claim against the negligent tortfeasor called a ‘Third party’ claim. First party claims are contractual. Third part claims are torts.
You are entitled to ALL of your First party benefits, also known a ‘personal injury protection’ or ‘PIP’ benefits, by operation of law. We can help make sure you receive them properly and in a timely manner.
Third-party lawsuits are prosecuted against an at-fault driver on behalf of those seriously injured by his or her negligence. Our attorneys have recovered millions of dollars for these types of serious injuries.
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident it is imperative that you consult with an attorney to determine your rights and how long you have to bring any claims.
