What you need to know about no-fault insurance

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) If you drive, you probably have auto insurance. And many people have had the unfortunate event of an auto accident. But there are things many people don’t know about Michigan no-fault insurance. That’s where the experts at Auto Accident Attorneys come in.

Attorney Glenn Franklin of Auto Accident Attorneys says no-fault insurance is a package of mandatory benefits you purchase to protect yourself in the event of an automobile accident.

Franklin says you should hire an auto accident attorney as soon as you get into an accident – even before contacting your insurance company. This will insure there are no delays in your claim, and you get all your benefits. Most people don’t have a full understanding of all of their benefits, and insurance companies often do not want to pay your maximum claim.

No-Fault Benefits can include:

  • Medical
  • Wage loss
  • Household replacement services
  • Attendant care
  • Medical mileage or transportation

Filing a claim is time sensitive. Don’t wait to call Auto Accident Attorneys and don’t wait to seek medical treatment. Their office can ensure you receive all of your benefits. If they’re not successful in obtaining benefits on your behalf or getting you a settlement, there is no fee.

Time Limitations for Filing a Claim:

  • Personal Injury Protection Benefits
    • 1 year from the date of accident
  • Bodily Injury Claim
  •                 3 years from the date of accident
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Claim
    • 6 years from the date of accident

If you’re in a motor vehicle accident, contact Auto Accident Attorneys for a free consultation; and allow them to contact the insurance company and file your claim, regardless of who is at fault.
