Michigan No Fault Benefits | Survivor Loss

0 Comment

Survivor Loss Benefits refer to the benefits that are available to family members of someone who is killed in an accident through their Michigan No Fault insurance policy. No Fault insurance benefits are available when a biker has been injured or killed in an accident involving a car, truck, SUV, or other motor vehicle.

Survivor loss benefits are paid to the spouse or a relative of the motorcyclist who dies in an accident. They typically include a portion of the funeral expenses as well as payments for loss of financial support and loss of household services. The payment for the funeral expenses is disbursed as a one-time payment while the other payments are paid out over a period of time for up to three years. The amount that is paid out changes from year to year due to inflation.

A survivor loss claim requires the family to submit a copy of the death certificate, funeral bill, and proof of loss of financial support and household services. These things should be submitted as quickly as possible after the accident since the No Fault Act and insurance companies have strict deadlines and use people’s failure to meet deadlines as an excuse to deny their claims and save money for their own shareholders. I strongly recommend you consult with an attorney immediately after a fatal accident or any accident to ensure you are submitting all the proper documents and making all the claims you should to get the full amount of benefits you are entitled to.
