You likely are entitled to monetary payment for pain and suffering caused by the car accident if:
you were a passenger or if the other driver was more than 50 percent at fault
you did not intentionally cause the accident
you are insured
a physician states the accident was more likely than not the cause of your injuries.
The likelihood of a judgment in your favor depends upon how significantly the auto accident affects your life. In reaching
a verdict about an automobile accident in Michigan, judges and juries will consider:
What activities you can no longer perform
How long you were off work
Whether you have visible scarring from the car accident
Whether the auto accident resulted in permanent, disabling injuries.

Michigan No-Fault Insurance Changes

Terry Cochran explains where we are today with Michigan No-Fault Insurance
and the benefits of the current structure. Since 1973, Michigan has had one of the most progressive no-fault laws. We have guarantees for
accident victims that medical bills and full care will be covered for life.
Proposed changes will limit access to medical care providers and limit the amount of
money available for auto accident victims. The lowest coverage is $500,000. In the case of a catastrophic injury, that amount
will be spent within the first six weeks.
The elderly are particularly vulnerable. Seniors do
not want to be a burden to their families, and it's pretty clear that Medicare just won't have funds to cover these
The insurance companies say the changes will allow for lower insurance premiums, but
they make no commitments. Proponents of the proposed changes have a legitimate claim that medical and care expenses need more controls. Terry
is supportive of increased oversight of medical services. Better reviews by the medical community of services and goods is appropriate and needed.
