    Default Rear-End Collision

    You're in Michigan, right? You would likely have a difficult time meeting Michigan's "threshold" for bringing a personal injury lawsuit against the other driver.

    Also, you stated elsewhere that you were uninsured at the time of the accident, which I believe renders you ineligible to bring a lawsuit for pain and suffering under Michigan law.

    Default Personal Injury Damages

    If you have any economic damages resulting from injury to your person, such as unpaid medical bills, you may still be able to recover those from the other driver even though you were uninsured.

    The application of Michigan's no fault threshold law has nothing to do with whether or not you are insured. It applies to all car accident cases. The requirement that you insure your own vehicle for damage isn't changed by the fact that you are uninsured - you would be in the same situation if you were insured but declined to purchase collision coverage.
