How Long After A Car Accident Can I Claim Injury in Michigan?
In Michigan, for a first party No-Fault benefits claim you have a 1 year time limit to claim injury after a car accident and for a third party pain and suffering compensation (non-economic damages) claim you have a 3 year time limit to claim injury after a car accident.
With the challenges of today’s car accident law and time limits to claim injury after a car accident in Michigan, auto lawyers are truly racing against the clock to protect their clients. With that in mind, it’s critical to ensure that you’re receiving complete and appropriate medical care for all of your car accident injuries — within the first three months of a crash.
If you’re having trouble getting timely referrals and/or appointments with specialists and doctors, it’s best to contact an auto lawyer, who can help you:
- Navigate managed care plans,
- Write appeal letters for denial of care,
- Find specialists who can see you quickly,
- Instruct medical providers on how to bill, and
- Point out possible masked injuries that could be harming you or getting progressively worse.
When injured car accident victims do not have medical insurance, they must have these tests and exams while their car accident claim is “open.” It can be nearly impossible to have these tests after the injured person’s No-Fault insurance benefits have been unnecessarily “cut off,” a common and unethical process by Michigan auto insurance companies.
An experienced Michigan auto lawyer can quickly identify how an accident victim can treat and legally document injuries, in order to fully recover after a crash.
