After a fatal car accident in Michigan, it is important that the victim’s surviving family members speak with an experienced personal injury attorney. Several important no-fault benefits are available to the deceased’s family, like survivor’s loss benefits. 

Regrettably, most insurance adjusters are either not honest about the insurance benefits that the family is qualified to receive, their calculations are wrong, or the benefits do not include everything a family is entitled to, such as burial and funeral expenses, social security benefits, replacement services, pension compensation, and disability benefits.

Data provided by the auto insurance industry itself confirms that families contacted directly by an insurance adjuster to settle a claim receive, on average, three to four times less than what they could get with an experienced car accident attorney.
