Personal Injury Overview
The number of traffic crashes and fatal accidents in Michigan is slowly declining. While that’s good news, the numbers are still alarming. For example, fatal auto accidents fell roughly 5 percent from 1,028 deaths to 974 fatalities in recent years. There were 312,394 traffic accidents in a single year, with victims sustaining injuries in 75,838 of those accidents. Reports indicate that the biggest percentage of these accidents occurred in the Detroit area.
Keep in mind, we’re only talking about auto accidents. When you factor in other common injury causes, such as workplace accidents, construction accidents, medical malpractice, and defective product accidents, the number of accidental injuries increases significantly. Many people sustain injuries through no fault of their own, and they may face bills for medical treatment, physical therapy, and other expenses, as well as losing income from missed work during their recovery process.
Does this sound familiar? If so, a Detroit personal injury lawyer can help you.
A personal injury case is a legal dispute that happens when one person incurs an injury from an accident that someone else may be responsible for. Many times, accidents are the result of the carelessness or negligence of another party or even multiple parties.
Our Detroit personal injury lawyers work within the law to help our clients secure maximum compensation for damages. Medical treatment and loss of wages are the two most common costs that accident victims claim, although there are many more losses that can apply in a personal injury case.

The Insurance Companies Are Not on Your Side
When you suffer injuries through no fault of your own, the responsible party’s insurance company may contact you. They will want to check in and “see how you are doing” and ask you about the extent of your injuries. Typically, they are very friendly people and appear to have concern for your welfare. They’re not!
Insurance companies do not care about you or your well-being. Their focus is on one thing—saving money. They want to offer you as little compensation as possible, or in some cases, no compensation at all. When an insurance company calls you, they want to dissuade you from making claims. Also, their motive is to get information from you that they can use against you in your case.
If an insurance company calls you, avoid giving them more than basic information, and do not speak to them about how the accident happened or your injuries. Your Detroit personal injury lawyer will contact them on your behalf and instruct them that all correspondence must go through your legal team.
During settlement negotiations or a trial, if necessary, the insurance company will employ high-priced lawyers who know all the tricks to use against you. Don’t go it alone. Let a skilled lawyer from Michigan Injury Lawyers fight the insurance company and beat them at their own game.
