A: A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Until you're able to speak with a local attorney to figure out if you have a case that's cost-effective to pursue, you could review your insurance policy to make certain of what it covers. In terms of a lawsuit, it's possible that bringing an attorney aboard would not be a cost-effective measure. No one here could know what kind of allowance your insurance provides, but nationwide, some of the no-fault plans allow in the ballpark of around $25 a day or $0.50 a mile for medical transportation, which attorney fees could easily exceed. You could look into whether the small claims court in your county handles such cases. Good luck
