Responding to a settlement offer on your no-fault insurance claim

After a car crash that leaves you or a member of your family with serious injuries, you will definitely feel grateful for your no-fault insurance policy. While many people in Michigan bemoan the expenses associated with no-fault insurance, for those who need medical coverage, the protections of no-fault insurance are invaluable.

Why are teenagers frequently at fault in an accident?

It's important not to stereotype people based on their age, gender or any other characteristic, especially when trying to form conclusions after an event or accident. When a teenage driver is involved in a car accident, it is often assumed by others involved that it must have been the young person's fault. Making this assumption should never be done because the true fault behind any car accident will depend on several factors, and evaluations of each of the drivers' actions leading up to the event will need to be evaluated.

Elder abuse can happen at the hands of home health care workers

Many people associate abuse and negligence of elderly people with nursing homes. They've heard stories of overworked, underpaid, poorly trained staff members who are dealing with too many people to give them the care and attention they need. Some of them, unfortunately, intentionally harm and humiliate their vulnerable charges.

Gender-reveal parties are getting more spectacular -- and risky

The blogger who is credited with inventing the concept of gender-reveal parties over a decade ago lamented recently that they've become a "dangerous trend." As the events have become increasingly more spectacular (largely because people are trying to create the next social media viral sensation), they've given rise to serious damage, injuries and at least one fatality.

How to monitor someone for a potential traumatic brain injury

Determining who needs medical care after a major vehicle crash isn't always easy. Some injuries are obvious and easy for even a lay person to diagnose. A broken bone with obvious trauma to the site of the fracture can be visually obvious. Other injuries, however, can be harder to detect right after a car crash.

When can you file a mini-tort claim?

Under Michigan's no-fault insurance system, drivers can get basic coverage from their insurer when they're involved in an accident regardless of whose fault the crash was. This no-fault system allows drivers to obtain compensation for medical care, lost wages, and in some cases, damages to their vehicle fairly quickly and easily compared to drivers in states that don't have no-fault insurance. However, the coverage is limited.

Driving an RV in the winter requires extra precautions

Some people only use their RVs during the spring and summer. However, if your RV is properly equipped and you feel ready to take on the weather conditions that a Michigan winter can bring, you may choose to take your RV on a winter road trip to enjoy the sights.
