Have you been injured in a Michigan auto accident?
We handle auto accident litigation throughout the State of Michigan.
Generally speaking, Michigan no-fault auto law provides that you may recover non-economic damages against an at-fault owner/operator in three distinct scenarios:
- Cases involving death;
- Cases involving serious disfigurement; and
- Cases where a person has suffered a “serious impairment of an important body function.”
Most litigation in Michigan is focused on whether the injured person has suffered a threshold injury under item 3 above. Determining what constitutes a serious impairment of an important body function has been the subject of many court rulings over the years. Generally speaking, the more serious the injury, the more likely you are to meet the threshold.
