No-Fault Law Requires Employers to Provide Auto Accident Victim’s Pay Records
Lawyer Commentary on No-Fault Statute: MCL 500.3158
Statement of earnings, form, contents; reports of treatment of injuries persons; records, production, inspection, copying
When a car accident victim seeks wage loss (work loss) benefits from his or her own No-Fault insurance company, based on injuries from a car accident, the auto insurer may request and the victim’s employer must provide information about the victim’s wages/earnings both before and after the car accident.
Specifically, per an auto insurance company’s request, a victim’s employer must provide “a sworn statement of the earnings since the time of the accidental bodily injury and for a reasonable period before the injury, of the person upon whose injury the claim is based.”
Similarly, any medical institution, such as a hospital or physician’s office, must provide medical records, reports and bills related to its treatment of any person requesting payment from his No-Fault insurance company for injuries resulting from a car accident. However, any medical records not somehow related to a car accident, personal injuries from a car accident or in regard to prior claims unrelated to a car accident are not subject to this disclosure rule.
