Michigan auto no-fault law requires auto accident victims in Michigan to prove that their injury represents a "serious impairment of a body function." The Michigan auto no-fault law defines a "serious impairment of a body function" as an objectively manifested impairment of an important body function that affects a persons general ability to live his or her normal life.
Michigan courts have interpreted the Michigan auto no-fault threshold to restrict access to the courts for many seriously injured auto accident victims. However, Michigan auto no-fault law provides for an exception to this threshold if the auto accident victim is able to claim a closed head injury.
Michigan law, MCL 500.3135(2)(a)(ii), states:
For a closed head injury, a question of fact for the jury is created if a licensed allopathic or osteopathic physician who regularly diagnosis or treats close-head injuries testifies under oath that there may be a serious neurological injury.
If you or a loved one suffered a serious closed head injury as a result of a Michigan auto accident, you should talk with an experienced Michigan auto accident lawyer. Please submit a simple, free and confidential consultation form today.
