If you are injured in an auto accident, you are entitled to make a claim for non-economic damages commonly referred to as “pain and suffering.” But recovering money for your pain, suffering, and injuries is not the only compensation you may be entitled to. The negligent driver may also be responsible for excess economic loss. In cases involving death, the estate of the auto accident victim can pursue a wrongful death claim against the at-fault motor vehicle driver. Injured auto accident victims must be very careful in how they approach a potential liability claim because, in most situations, the insurer of the motor vehicle involved in the accident will be “wearing two hats.” In other words, the insurer will be responsible for payment of no-fault PIP benefits to the injured auto accident victim and will also be the insurer defending the auto accident victim’s liability claim. In these situations, the auto accident victims must exercise extreme caution in his or her dealings with the motor vehicle insurer. Hiring a Detroit car accident lawyer at our firm immediately following an accident will prevent a costly mistake which could jeopardize the value of your case.
If a car is physically damaged as a result of being struck by another car, truck or other motor vehicle as defined in the Michigan No-Fault Law and that motor vehicle is insured with Michigan No-Fault insurance, the vehicle owner will not be able to recover any compensation for collision damage to the vehicle – not even so-called “mini-tort” damages that are available to automobiles. However, if the motor vehicle causing the damage to the car did not carry the required Michigan No-Fault insurance coverage, then the owner and/or operator of the uninsured motor vehicle is personally liable for the damage to the car.
In situations where an automobile was “reasonably parked” at the time the collision damage was sustained, the vehicle owner would be entitled to make a claim for “property protection insurance benefits” from the insurer of the motor vehicle causing the damage to the parked car. These property protection insurance benefits consist of the repair costs or replacement value of the car, less depreciation, plus the value of loss of use of the car.
