The Michigan No-Fault Insurance Act entitles injured motorists for up to 85 percent of your lost wages after an accident for three years. According to MCL 500.3107a, these benefits apply to unemployed work loss. If you are temporarily unemployed when you are in an auto accident, you are still entitled to compensation for unemployed wage loss during the time you are medically unable to work.

In that case, you and your auto accident attorney will have to demonstrate your previous work experience, and that you are only temporarily unemployed. You should gather your past tax returns and pay stubs to show how much you earned before. Your car accident lawyer may also ask you about your job search efforts leading up to the accident, including job applications and interviews. This evidence will help show what kind of job you could have gotten had you not been injured.
