Yes, there is recourse. In fact, you have 3 potential cases under Michigan law. Happy to answer any questions you have, but I would first click on www.michiganautolaw.com and look under the 3 cases icon on the right to learn more about your mini tort - which was raised on October 1st to $1,000, your no fault rights, and a potential claim for injuries.
You absolutely have a case. In Michigan if you get into a motor vehicle incident you have two potential cases. The first is known as a No-fault case for wage loss, medical bills and household services and attendant care. The second is a third party case for pain and suffering. We do these kinds of cases and will give you a free consultation by telephone. Feel free to call us at 313-389-2234.
You should consult an attorney in your State at once.
I agree with my colleagues. Hire an attorney and make sure your rights are protected!
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
Sue him in Small Claims Court for the property damage for the maximum allowed.
