Motor vehicle collisions encompass all forms of injuries that occur in the operation of a motorized vehicle. These claims include cars, trucks, vans, snowmobiles, ATVs, motorcycles, boats, trains, and airplanes.
Many motor vehicle collisions entitle injured parties and their families to more than one claim. First, the injured person will be required to make a claim for no-fault Accident Benefits through the automobile insurer. This is not a claim for monetary compensation, but rather a claim for benefits which include medical and rehabilitation benefits, income replacement benefits, non-earner benefits and housekeeping benefits, among others. An application for these benefits must be made within 30 days from the date of the accident.
Next, injured parties may have a claim to pursue a tort action against the at-fault party involved in the motor vehicle collision. This is a lawsuit for monetary compensation, which includes claims for pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of housekeeping, out of pocket expenses and future care costs.
