Is it still a hit and run if you don't hit a person?

The night is dark and you may be tired, intoxicated or simply inattentive. The next thing you know you have missed a turn-off and crashed your car right into someone else's parked vehicle, or perhaps a fence or parking meter. Your car is still operational enough to drive, and no one saw you. No one was hurt, even though you may have damaged Michigan public property. You should be safe to drive away and report the incident to your insurance provider later, right?

How does no-fault insurance apply to car accidents?

Of course you know that it is Michigan law to insure your vehicle, as it is in any other state. But did you know that Michigan is unique among other states in its expectation and application of no-fault insurance? But just what is no-fault insurance, and how does it apply to car accidents and personal injury?

Are health care workers at a higher risk for accidents?

Health care workers in Michigan face certain risks every time they show up at work. This type of job is fraught with challenges, both physically and emotionally. Statistics indicate that health care workers face a significant chance of experiencing an injury at work or suffering from the effects of their job. 

What kind of payments affect your Social Security disability?

If you become disabled, you may require funding from multiple sources to cover your medical treatment, long-term care and life expenses. These funds can include settlements from your Michigan employer, workers' compensation benefits, Social Security disability or numerous other sources. But you are likely quite aware that certain income sources, such as part-time jobs, can affect the amount you are granted under Social Security disability. So just how do certain payment sources affect your benefits?

Does Social Security disability pay for physical therapy?

After a personal injury resulting in disability, you may have the option for physical therapy either as part of your recovery or to prevent further degradation and pain caused by your disability. When selecting a Michigan-area physical therapist, you may find yourself worrying about costs incurred by regular physical therapy sessions. If you are on Social Security disability benefits, do you have the option of seeking coverage for your therapy through Social Security?
