Yes, you can go against the other driver who was at fault. You?ll have to have incurred an injury that significantly impairs your normal living, but that?s a matter to be discussed, to see if you meet the Michigan injury threshold.

I don't think you can get your medical bills paid, since you elected to disobey the law and not get the required insurance. If you have a "serous injury" as that term is defiend by statute, you should be able to recover paid and suffering against the other driver.

    Yes your claim is with the driver that hit you from behind. It doesn't matter that you don't have insurance. You claim would be for medical bills, pain and suffering and lost wages among others components. You should get a lawyer to properly build your case and to be able to sue. The insurance company knows that you cannot do that on your own.
