If you have been injured

See a doctor right away. The sooner you get medical attention, the better off you will be. Your doctor's records are invaluable--they prove that you were indeed hurt.

File a police report. This is especially helpful for people injured in motor vehicle accidents. It is also essential for people assaulted as a result of poor security on premises.

Do not face the insurance companies alone. It is their job to minimize your injuries and pay you as little as possible. If you deal with them on your own, you may not get all the compensation you need.

Survivor’s Loss Claims

Did you know that the Michigan No-Fault Act gives you benefits to you if you are the loved one of a person who was killed in an automobile accident? Automobile accidents causing death are devastating for those left behind. The Michigan No Fault Act requires insurance companies to offer survivor’s loss benefits to the surviving dependents of the fatally injured person. A timely application for benefits must be filed with the decedent’s no fault insurance carrier along with reasonable proof of the expected financial support the dependents expected to receive had the decedent not died. An application is considered timely if it is submitted within one year of the accident causing death.

Replacement services and economic loss benefits are available under section 3108 of the No Fault Act. Dependents are eligible for $20 per day for 3 years from the date of the accident for replacement services. Economic loss is calculated by determining the total contributions of tangible things of economic value the decedent would have provided to surviving dependents.

We are committed to results and protecting your rights in a time of crisis at the Nichols Law Firm, PLLC. We have over 40 years of experience in handling catastrophic automobile accident cases. Trust us to get the maximum value for your survivor’s loss claim. Call the Nichols Law Firm Today!
