You can receive $20.00 per day (up to $620.00 monthly money) for household services and other services that another person is providing for you after the accident. These services are also known as replacement services.

The insurance company may also pay for personal care performed in your home by a family member or nurse. This is referred to as attendant care and is paid per hour of care, up to $30.00 per hour (paid monthly). Our law firm can help you make a claim for attendant care benefits if you need aid with daily activities such as dressing, bathing, and various other forms of personal care or supervision.

The insurance company will also pay medical mileage reimbursement under Michigan’s No-Fault Law for the miles you travel going to and from medical or treatment appointments for accident-related injuries. If you are unable to drive yourself or do not have a vehicle to seek the care, recovery, or rehabilitation you require, the insurance company may pay for the transportation.

HOME / VEHICLE MODIFICATIONS
Home modifications are changes to your home or living space in order to accommodate your accident-related physical or functional limitations following the injuries you sustained. Vehicle modifications are modifications to your car, truck, or van that accommodate accident-related physical or functional limitations, permitting you to drive your vehicle and regain independence. In some cases, modifications are not enough and your limitations must be accommodated only by purchasing a new vehicle or building a new home that is specifically modified to meet your specific needs.
In the event of a fatal vehicle related accident, the family of the deceased is entitled to be compensated for the financial support and services which the deceased would have performed. These are often termed survivor's loss benefits and the family can be paid up to $6,065.00 monthly money.
The Michigan No-Fault Act also provides a funeral and burial expense benefit of at least $1,750.00 and up to $5,000.00.
PAIN & SUFFERING
If the accident was not your fault, you may be compensated for your pain and suffering and any emotional damages. If the at-fault party does not have insurance or that party cannot be located, you may be able to make an uninsured motorist claim for your pain and suffering.

If you had optional collision coverage- you can make a claim through your own insurance company. This is usually handled without attorney involvement. If you have a deductible, the at-fault person is responsible for the deductible and this is known as a mini-tort claim. Our law firm can help you make the mini-tort claim through the insurance company for the at-fault.
If you just had no-fault insurance (PLPD) and did not have collision coverage- our law firm can help you make a claim for damages up to $3,000.00 through the insurance company for the at-fault.
If your vehicle was parked- the insurer of the other vehicle pays for all the collision damages to the vehicle and its contents. The insurer of the other vehicle also has to pay for loss of use of the property.
If a vehicle causes damage to your property, the insurance company for the owner/registrant of that vehicle has to cover repair or replacement and loss of use, up to $1,000.000.00. This is known as property protection insurance (PPI) benefits and every vehicle in Michigan is required to carry PPI coverage.
Typical examples of damaged property include buildings, homes, trees, landscaping, signs, fences, mailboxes, and trash cans.
Our law firm can help you claim these benefits if your property was damaged, and we can sue the insurance company if necessary in order to pursue the proper amount owed to you.
