Automobile Accident Lost Wages
Under Michigan law, no-fault insurance companies are liable to pay for lost employment income in the event of injuries which cause full or partial disability from employment. MCL 500.3107(1)(b). You are entitled to wage loss payments for the time you have been off of work due to injuries from your auto accident.
This applies to pedestrians, bicyclists, skate boarders, passengers, drivers of other cars, and basically, anyone who was injured in an accident involving a motor vehicle.
Whether you are employed, self-employed, recently laid off, or even looking for work at the the time of your Michigan auto accident, auto insurance companies are responsible for your lost wages for up to three years. The amount of time you are entitled to wage loss income is usually determined by your injuries and the opinions of your treating doctors.
