0 Comment

According to the Michigan State Police, the number of motorcycles involved in fatal crashes has increased 144.2% in the ten-year period between 1997 and 2007. Though danger looms on the road, especially when you are riding a bike, many accident victims do not know what to do and how to make claims in the event of a Michigan motorcycle accident. In Michigan, the laws about how to file claims are more complex than any other state in the country.

Michigan law assigns can Order of Priority to determine the order in which an insurer, if any, becomes liable for Michigan No Fault insurance benefits.  These benefits include payment of medical expenses, lost wages, household services, attendant care services, and other benefits.  In some circumstances, the injured person may be entitled to benefits but did not have an insurance policy.

Depending on a number of factors, the injured person may qualify for benefits through the State of Michigan Assigned Claims Facility. The Michigan Assigned Claims Facility is an official state agency, which has the power to authorize an insurance company to offer benefits to a victim of the accident, in case he or she is unable to get such benefits from any other source. There is a specific form that must filed with the agency to qualify for benefits.

You must complete the form and send it to the address below.  It is important that the form be properly completed and submitted to the facility within one year after the date of the accident in order to receive benefits.
