Representing Victims of Car Accidents in and around Flint and Grand Blanc

A distracted driver talking on cellphone that caused a car crash, needs a Flint car accident attorney to defend him in court.

Car accidents in the State of Michigan are often traumatic events that can lead to serious personal injuries and financial hardship for victims. On many occasions, these accidents occur because another driver is negligent and fails to operate their motor vehicle in a careful, reasonable, and prudent manner. 

When it comes to car accidents, Michigan is a no-fault insurance state. This means that if you are involved in a motor vehicle collision, your own insurance (Personal Injury Protection – or PIP – Coverage) should cover your medical bills, lost wages, and other out-of-pocket expenses, up to the limit of your insurance coverage. This is true regardless of who caused the accident. However, in some instances, you may be able to step outside the no-fault system and pursue a claim or lawsuit against the at-fault driver to ensure you receive compensation for all of your accident-related losses. 

The Michigan no-fault process can be confusing, and it is important that you pursue all of the legal and monetary benefits to which you are entitled following a car accident. The knowledgeable Michigan car accident lawyers at Nickola Law understand the complexities and nuances of the process and can help you pursue the maximum compensation available to you.

Driver Negligence

Car accidents can occur for a variety of different reasons, including driver negligence. All drivers owe a duty of reasonable care to other drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians on or near the road. Drivers may breach this duty of care by engaging in distracted driving, violating traffic laws and other regulations, drinking and driving, and any other careless behaviors on the road. Although most car accident cases in Michigan must proceed through the no-fault system, there are certain instances where you might be able to hold a negligent driver accountable. 

Holding the At-fault Driver Accountable for Your Injuries

To file a third-party insurance claim or lawsuit against the driver who caused your Michigan accident – and in order to recover non-economic losses, including compensation for pain and suffering – one of the following must be true:

  • The at-fault driver resides out of state and his or her vehicle is not insured in the State of Michigan.
  • The accident resulted in serious or permanent disfigurement, impaired a bodily function, or brought about the accident victim’s wrongful death.
  • The motor vehicle collision took place in some other state.
  • The lawsuit involves $1,000 or less in property damage to the accident victim’s car, the damage is not covered by the accident victim’s own policy of insurance, and the at-fault driver is deemed at least 50 percent responsible for the collision.
