Yes there is probably help for your grandmother. As long as she was not the owner of the vehicle she was traveling in she is entitled to no-fault benefits (http://legislature.mi.gov/doc.aspx?mcl-500-3107). Also, if she, or any resident relative had uninsured motorist benefits on their motor vehicle on the date of her accident, she may be entitled to benefits under that coverage. She should talk to an attorney as soon as possible. There are notice issues to carriers on these types of claims.
Your father should have his own case manager, which he has a right to select, and which should be paid for by his no-fault carrier. A good case manager will be an advocate for him, and arrange for the appropriate transition from the facility to the next level of care and when appropriate prepare the home environment with the reasonably necessary accommodations for his continued recovery. I would be happy to answer any questions or give you the names of reputable case managers if you need help.
You should consult an attorney immediately. You are very close to your statute of limitations. The offer sounds very low considering the injuries you describe. Finally, any release should be reviewed to ensure that her 1party benefits remain intact.
Feel fee to contact me for a no obligation consult. My cell phone number is on my outgoing voicemail message.
Generally your wage loss, replacement services and allowable expenses (MCL 500.3107)(http://www.legislature.mi.gov/(S(5ju0wgmtgdbsnm45d33xdo55))/mileg.aspx?page=getObject&objectName=mcl-500-3107) are provided by your own auto carrier (through your and/or your resident relatives insurer). Your medical bills may be payable by either or both of your insurers (your medical carrier or no-fault insurer) but that will depend on whether either or both of them are coodinated policies.

I certainly would not take their word for it. It should be investigated by a lawyer familiar with Michigan No-Fault.
Further, your own policy may have protection for uninsured motorists.
Finally, your insurance provides you with your first-party no-fault benefits, not the striking vehicle, whether they are insured or not.
I strongly encourage you to seek legal counsel ASAP as there may be other claims available such as dramshop. My office will meet with you for a free no commitment...
The above answer is absolutely correct. If you previous attorney was able to help, and is already familiar with you file, that is a great place to start.
If for some reason that attorney is not available, you should contact another attorney asap. I am available to discus this with you if you like.
Your homeowner insurance ought to provide coverage for the loss. You should pursue your claim with them first. If they pay your claim, they will have subrogation rights against the drunk, and his insurance if he has any insurance. Why should you incur cost and attorney fees if you had insurance to cover this. If they do not, see an attorney as soon as possible.
The Michigan No-Fault Act MCL 500.3107(1)(a) (link http://www.legislature.mi.gov/(S(5xfpvteldrawgz45xxyxg4uh))/mileg.aspx?page=getObject&objectName=mcl-500-3107) addresses the auto-insurers obligations generally under the statute. You need to get a copy of your auto insurance declaration sheet to see if your medical expenses (referred to as "allowable expenses" in the statute) are coodinated with your medical insurance. The medical insurance policy should also be reviewed for mutual...
Yes you do, by statute and common law. You should contact an attorney as soon as possible. There may be deadlines/statute of limitations issues. Further, an investigation needs to be done including identifying the operator of the vending machine, and the supplier/manufacturer of the sandwich.
You have many rights available to you under the Michigan No-Fault Act. Do not be too concerned about the police report having your injury information, but you should follow up with your/a doctor regarding the injuries as soon as possible. Your declaration sheet for your auto insurance will indicate what other additional coverages/rights you may have, and you should meet with an attorney with that document as soon as possible. There are often important NOTICE requirements for some of the...
