Michigan Auto Accident Claims
In Michigan, there are two types of automobile accident claims:
- First-party claims
These claims are filed against your own Personal Injury Protection insurance (also known as “PIP”) included in your no-fault insurance. First-party claims provide coverage for accident-related medical expenses, wage loss, and attendant care. They may be filed even if you were at fault for the accident.
- Third-party claims
When a car accident that wasn’t your fault causes a serious injury (also known as a threshold injury) to your brain, spinal cord, or head, you can file a third-party claim against the other driver’s insurance company for your accident-related injuries and expenses, including pain and suffering.
If you’re unsure of what type of claim you need to file, Michigan Injury Lawyers is here for you. Our Detroit auto accident lawyers know the differences between first-party and third-party claims, and we can help you file the correct claim for your accident.
