First Party and Third Party Claims

first party claims

In car accident cases in Michigan, there are two types of claims. A first party claim is a claim against an insurance company for no-fault benefits.  A third party claim is a claim for damages, such as pain and suffering, against those at fault for the accident.

A first party claim for no-fault benefits is a claim for financial losses such as medical bills, lost wages, replacement services and other benefits.  In most circumstances, this is a claim you make against your own insurance company, but in some cases, the claim is made against another insurance company.

There are short time periods to give notice of your claims for benefits to your insurer and in which suits must be filed against your insurance company.  Our office has decades of experience dealing with insurance companies operating in Michigan.  In the event that a dispute arises with your own insurance company, we regularly and successfully handle lawsuits to get you the no-fault benefits you deserve.

A third-party claim for damages from the at-fault driver, the owner of the other car, possible other responsible parties, and their insurance companies is where you can claim compensation for pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of income for more than three years, disability, scarring, disfigurement, and wrongful death.

You may lose your ability to obtain the compensation you deserve if your claim is not pursued properly and promptly.  Posner, Posner and Posner has successfully represented thousands of clients in car accident cases.  Call us now to obtain all of the compensation you and your family deserve.

Uninsured Motorist Claims/Hit and Run Accidents

Even if the other driver involved in an automobile accident with you has no insurance, or if you are hit by a hit-and-run driver, you may still have a claim.  Uninsured motorist coverage could provide you a financial recovery where you did not think one was possible. It is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible after an automobile accident occurs because insurance policies often place very short time periods on actions, which you must take (sometimes as short as 24 hours from the date of the accident).

Underinsured Motorist Claims

Underinsured motorist insurance is optional insurance coverage which provides an extra insurance security blanket to you in the event that you are injured in an automobile accident and the other party has minimum or limited automobile insurance coverage of their own.  In the event that you carry underinsured motorist, you should contact our office as soon as possible after the automobile accident takes place to have the policy reviewed by us to determine what steps need to be taken to preserve your claim.

Take Action Quickly

In a car accident or any other personal injury matter, you need to take immediate action to protect your rights. Physical evidence and witnesses' recollections can begin to disappear quickly, and unless this critical evidence is preserved, your ability to obtain a positive outcome may be put in jeopardy. In addition, there are deadline filings that must be met in claims for no-fault benefits, third-party claims for pain and suffering and other damages, and uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist claims.  If you miss those deadlines, your will lose your claims.
