Injured While Loading Or Unloading A Vehicle?
Injuries can happen almost anywhere. Many people are hurt while working on their cars, getting kids into vehicles or unloading shopping carts. Few injury victims realize, however, that they may be able to seek compensation through Michigan no-fault insurance laws.
In Michigan, every registered owner of a motor vehicle must carry a no-fault insurance policy. Certain qualified expenses following an accident are covered under this insurance — regardless of who was at fault.
At Bredell & Bredell, we help injury victims get the no-fault insurance benefits they deserve under Michigan law. We use our experience as personal injury lawyers to investigate all possible options — including compensation through no-fault insurance and third-party claims.
A court will award no-fault coverage in many situations:
- When an injury involves certain vehicle-mounted equipment
- When an injury occurs during the course of loading or unloading property
Not every situation is eligible. Employees who suffer injuries while loading or working on vehicles typically aren’t covered. Workers who are not eligible for no-fault insurance benefits, however, may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.
