The No-Fault Act requires that the no-fault insurer pay all reasonable charges for necessary products, services, and accommodations for an injured person’s care, recovery, or rehabilitation arising out of a motor vehicle accident. The medical expenses are payable for life and are unlimited in amount. Medical benefits include such things as hospital bills, doctor’s visits, medical tests, physical therapy, prescriptions, appliances, transportation to and from medical care, vans, wheelchairs, home modifications, and home or residential care, including nursing care (also known as attendant care) provided by family members or friends.


The No-fault Act provides wage loss benefits that are payable for a maximum of three years from the date of the accident. The wage loss benefit is 85 percent of a person’s gross wage up to a monthly maximum of approximately $4,800 per month.


Under the No-fault Act, an injured person or the survivor of a deceased may recover replacement services. The no-fault law provides for the payment of up $20 per day for the loss of services that the injured or deceased person would have provided for himself or herself (if the person is surviving) and for dependents. Typical replacement services include such things as housecleaning, washing dishes, yard work, home maintenance, babysitting, child transportation, etc.


Medical expense benefits include mileage to and from medical care. As a claimant, you should keep a record of the mileage expenses by date and miles for submission to the no-fault carrier. The amount paid by insurers varies from about $.30 per mile to $.55 per mile.


A dependent survivor of an individual who is killed in a motor vehicle accident has the right to survivor’s loss payments similar to the wage loss benefits of a surviving disabled claimant. However, survivor’s income loss is broader than wage loss and includes fringe benefits, including health insurance and other premiums and coverages that the decedent’s employment would have provided, plus lost wages, salary, and other income.The maximum for survivor’s loss benefits is currently about $4,800 a month (adjusted annually).


The No-fault Act also provides funeral expense benefits of a minimum of $1,750 with the right to purchase up to $5,000 in funeral and burial expense coverage. Depending on the amount that was purchased in the no-fault insurance policy that applies to the case, there will be at least $1,750 towards funeral and burial expenses in the event of a death resulting from a motor vehicle accident.
