If you have been in a serious car accident, you likely missed some work, whether it was to attend doctors’ appointments, go through physical therapy, or were unable to work during your recovery. While some jobs provide a limited amount paid time off, for other employees the loss of income is immediate. That’s why it is important to know what compensation is available for lost wages after a motor vehicle accident.

Auto accidents in Michigan are covered by no fault auto insurance. If you own a car you must have coverage that protects you in an accident. Even as a passenger or pedestrian, you are still covered.
Your no fault insurance policy includes lost wages compensation. After an accident, your insurance company is required to pay 85 percent of your lost income for up to three years. You can use this benefit to cover unpaid time off for medical exams and doctors visits, to pay your bills during your FMLA medical leave, or to bridge the gap if your condition causes you to lose your job.
If you happened to be unemployed when the accident happened, you can still receive lost wages benefits as long as you were actively seeking employment. How much you will be paid will depend on the kinds of jobs you were qualified for prior to the accident.
