WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I AM INVOLVED IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT?
When you are involved in an auto accident, the first thing you need to do is make sure the police are contacted and a police report made. Your own insurance company must also be notified. There are other steps that may need to be taken specific to your situation, it is best to contact one of our Auto Accident Attorneys to be certain you are not missing something important. Many situations are very time sensitive, meaning you may only have hours or days to take the proper action or your claim may be affected.
WHAT ARE NO FAULT BENEFITS?
Under Michigan law you are automatically entitled to receive Personal Injury Protection benefits which are also called no-fault benefits from an auto insurance carrier. That insurance carrier may be your own auto insurance company if you own a car which is insured or through the auto insurance of a resident relative if you do not have your own auto insurance. In other cases your no-fault benefits may come from the driver that caused the accident, a vehicle in which you were a passenger, or in some cases through the State assigned claims fund. If you contact Mindell Law team of Auto Accident Lawyers we will explain where your benefits should come from with our FREE consultation.
No-fault benefits will provide you with a lifetime of unlimited medical coverage for the injuries you suffered in the accident. It will provide wage loss coverage for 3 years from the date of the accident. It provides up to 20 dollars a day for help around the home. It provides nursing, personal care, and attendant care in severe injury cases. Finally, it provides reimbursement for transportation expense for all accident related medical trips.

You also have the right to make a claim against the at-fault driver. This means a claim for pain and suffering, permanent injury, permanent serious disfigurement, aggravation of preexisting conditions, loss of ability to carry on your normal life, emotional distress and mental anguish and economic losses that may exceed no-fault benefits such as permanent wage loss. These can be made against the negligent parties who caused the accident and their insurance company.

WHAT IS UM OR UNINSURED MOTORIST COVERAGE?
You may have also seen the symbol UM or UIM in your insurance policy if you have purchased this coverage. UM stands for uninsured motorist coverage. This means that if you are struck by an individual who is not insured, you can make a claim against your own insurance company for these uninsured motorist benefits. Please read more about this in the Uninsured Motorist section of our website. It is very important to realize that your uninsured motorist coverage is contractually based and may be time sensitive (even a year or less). That is why it is always important to contact an Auto Accident attorney experienced in this field as soon as possible after your accident. We have been auto accident attorneys for over 50 years.
WHAT IS UIM OR UNDERINSURED MOTORIST COVERAGE?
This means that if you are negligently struck by an individual who does not have enough insurance coverage to compensate you for your injuries, you may make an underinsured motorist claim against your own insurance company if you have this type of coverage. Please read more about this in the Underinsured Motorist section of our website. It is very important to realize that your underinsured motorist coverage is based on your insurance policy, and may be time sensitive. That is why it is always important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible after your accident.
Please note that you must set up a No-Fault Claim as soon as possible. Typically, this No Fault claim is made through your own automobile insurance company, but not always.
