Car Accident Lawyer in Michigan
First steps: Car Accidents
When you have been harmed in an auto accident, even if the injury is slight, complications can later occur. You may be faced with unexpected medical costs, lost wages, and other losses. After a car crash, it is important to seek immediate medical attention and then consult with an experienced attorney about your case.
At Michigan Injury Lawyers, we understand the devastation an injury can have on the accident victim and their family. During the days, weeks and months following your crash, we will investigate the hard facts of your case, including every detail that needs to be found, and evaluate the incident. Because our firm focuses on personal injury law, we have the resources and experience to help clients win settlements and verdicts that reflect the full extent of their injuries and losses.
Getting the Legal Help You Need
A minor car accident can disrupt your life, and a serious crash can lead to long-lasting injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury, loss of limbs, severe burns or spinal cord damage. In the event of a catastrophic injury, medical care may be extensive and ongoing, with the potential need for nursing care or personal assistance for months, years, or life. Victims may become disabled and lose their ability to be self-supporting and independent. Their families may face emotional and financial hardship and other losses. If the accident could have been prevented, those responsible should be held accountable.
Making an injury claim under Michigan accident laws is not always straightforward. Complications and difficulties can arise and you may have many questions about your case, such as:
- How does no-fault insurance apply?
- Does my claim involve only a first party or a third party as well?
- How do I determine negligence in the incident?
- What is a “threshold injury” and did I sustain one?
At Michigan Injury Lawyers, we handle these types of questions and difficulties every day. Our lawyers have represented hundreds of accident victims and have the negotiation and courtroom skills necessary to help you get a fair settlement from an insurance company or a favorable verdict in court. We focus on building strong cases with efficiency and will fight to protect your rights throughout the claims process.
Let Us Help While You Recover
Car accidents are usually caused by human error. A mistake made by another driver may entitle you to economic and non-economic damages if the other party was totally or partially at fault. Financial consequences you suffer, such as medical costs and lost wages, are referred to as economic damages. Your pain, suffering and emotional distress are referred to as non-economic damages. Because Michigan is a no-fault state, your claim will depend on many factors. You will benefit by having an experienced attorney at your side to sort out the details of your case.
Handling Your Wrongful Death Claim
A wrongful death is an incident in which someone dies due to the negligence of another. If you are faced with the death of a loved one, you may be justified in pursuing a wrongful death claim. Surviving family members of the deceased can be awarded compensation for funeral and burial expenses, loss of valuable income, benefits, services and loss of love, companionship and affection. As in injury claims, the responsible party may be a negligent individual, manufacturer of the vehicle or auto part, or a government entity that contributed to the accident.
