Understanding Replacement Services

Michigan’s No-Fault Law entitles car accident victims to certain benefits. Among these benefits are “Replacement Services”. These are services that the injured person was able to perform for him/herself prior to the car accident. They typically involve household chores such as cooking, cleaning, taking out the garbage, mowing the law, etc.

If the injured person requires help with these services, the person who is helping is entitled to receive compensation for the services they provide on behalf of the injured victim. Anyone can provide these services, including family members or friends.

The service provider can receive up to $20 per day for three years from the accident date. Typically, the insurance companies require that the service provider document the tasks and chores that are performed. This can be done on monthly calendars that will be provided.
