At a point in my life that was so very hectic I was involved in an accident in early 2019 that had intensified my hectic life even more. I was unsure what and how to do what was necessary. Thankfully Michigan Auto Law was there for me to make sure everything was taken care of and nothing was overlooked with regard to my case. All while offering good advice and help when needed. They have a very kind and friendly staff as well and during the almost two years my case was open that very staff had talked with me and helped me many of times. I want to thank everyone at Michigan Auto Law for everything and I have to say the big check they got for me and my two children is greatly appreciated. I’m glad I found Michigan Auto Law amongst the many law firms out there

Why Do I Need An Ann Arbor Car Accident Lawyer?
If you are injured in a crash, you need an Ann Arbor car accident lawyer to help you. An experienced attorney can help you protect your legal rights to collect No-Fault wage loss and PIP benefits and ensure that your medical bills are paid under our state’s auto No-Fault insurance law. Michigan’s auto law can present challenges for those who aren’t familiar with how it works.
Take, for example, the requirement for providing “notice” if you are injured in a hit and run or in an accident with an uninsured driver. Insurance policies can have contract language requiring 30 days notice, in order for you to recover under the uninsured motorist protection. If you are injured in a hit and run car accident (which unfortunately is common with approximately 20% of all drivers in Michigan driving uninsured), failure to comply with the “notice” requirement in your own “uninsured motorist” policy could mean your policy will be voided and you lose the ability to recover compensation for injuries and losses. This “notice” clause can leave you with nothing – or worse yet, with expensive medical bills you have to pay out of pocket and no insurance to cover needed medical care and treatment in the future.
An experienced Ann Arbor car accident lawyer can protect you from falling into traps that can trip up the unwary accident victim. Sadly, this includes auto insurance companies and claims adjusters who may try to trick Ann Arbor residents, who are already under financial pressure after an accident, into “settling” their car accident injury claims for a lot less than they’re worth. They may also talk an accident victim into forfeiting all of their future legal rights to No-Fault benefits and pain and suffering compensation as a result of the crash.
Our Ann Arbor car accident lawyers are here to protect you and help you. We make sure you receive everything you are entitled to after a car crash, both from your own insurance company and from the insurance company of the careless driver who caused your injuries. It’s important to call for a free consultation with an experienced car accident attorney immediately after any car accident in which you or a family member are injured.

More Ann Arbor Car Accident Lawyer FAQs
What other information do you need to know if you’re considering hiring a Ann Arbor car accident lawyer? If you are injured in a car accident, you could be entitled to important benefits, pain and suffering compensation and other damages, though it’s important to remember that you’re more likely to recover the highest value of your claim when you hire the right legal team to protect your rights. Read our attorney FAQs below or call now to speak to an experienced car accident attorney with no obligation or fees.
One of the first questions many people ask after a crash is: How much does a Ann Arbor car accident lawyer cost? It’s common to think that hiring a lawyer is too expensive, but that’s not true. In fact, at Michigan Auto Law, we never ask our clients to pay any fees, unless and until we win the case. You don’t pay anything – up front or out-of-pocket. We are paid at the end of the case and only if we make a recovery for you first. It’s called a contingency fee and it means we only get paid if you get paid. We win your case first, but you ALWAYS get a 100% client satisfaction guarantee
It’s definitely worth it, but don’t take our word for it. The insurance industry has researched this topic and their data demonstrates that a person who is represented by an experienced car accident attorney recovers significantly more than a person who is not represented by a lawyer. Also, at Michigan Auto Law, you don’t pay unless and until we win. Our Ann Arbor car accident lawyers will handle all aspects of your injury case so you can focus on recovering and putting your life back together. We are always here to answer any questions about the process, the case, the law, the insurance company, the adjuster, or anything else, for that matter. We’re on your side and we’re here for you.
You are not legally required to hire a Ann Arbor car accident lawyer after a car accident when it isn’t your fault, though it’s definitely in your best interest to do so. An experienced Ann Arbor car accident lawyer like the ones at Michigan Auto Law, who specialize in car, truck and motorcycle accident cases, will help ensure that you get the best possible legal and financial settlement. Your lawyer will help ensure that you get all of the lost wages and medical benefits to which you’re entitled – both now and in the future – under the auto No-Fault insurance law, along with any possible pain and suffering compensation and other economic damages. The right experienced attorney will help you win compensation and protect your rights, so you can focus on your medical recovery and getting back to your normal life.
How long does it take to get a settlement after a crash? Since every case is unique, that’s a really difficult question to answer. In general, there are several factors that can impact how long a case will take to settle. These can include: your injuries, prognosis, and current and future medical needs; whether you’re partially or fully disabled; whether you are prevented from working; whether your injuries have caused an impairment that affects your ability to lead a normal life; whether your injuries necessitate “excess” coverage for medical bills and lost wages in the future; the relevant experience, proven track record and reputation of your attorney; and the actions of the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company, adjuster and defense attorney.
