Do I Need A Lawyer For A Car Accident Pontiac, MI?
If you are injured in a car accident in Pontiac, MI you are not required to hire a lawyer but it is in your best interest. An experienced attorney can help protect your legal rights to collect Michigan No-Fault wage loss, PIP benefits and get your medical bills paid. Unfortunately, Michigan’s No-Fault law can present many potential hurdles for the uninformed consumer.
It’s never too soon to call an attorney because our state’s No-Fault law presents some serious financial traps for unwary consumers. It’s unfortunate that these types of traps are legal, but they are.
Take, for example, the necessity of providing “notice” to your own insurance company when you’re injured in a hit and run crash or by an uninsured driver. In today’s world, insurance policies are legally allowed to have contract language that requires 30 days notice, in order for the victim to recover uninsured motorist protection when they’re injured in a hit and run car crash or by a negligent, uninsured driver. This is becoming quite common, unfortunately, with approximately 20% of all drivers in Michigan estimated to be driving uninsured. As the insurance consumer, if you fail to comply with this “notice” requirement in your own “uninsured motorist” policy (that you pay premiums for), your insurance company can void your policy so that you lose the ability to recover any compensation for your injuries and losses. Your insurance company leaves you with nothing, or even with huge medical bills that you’ll be forced to pay out of pocket and no insurance to pay for needed medical care and treatment in the future.
An experienced auto accident lawyer serving Pontiac, MI can protect you from accidental financial missteps like that one and others. Sadly, we’re seeing more car insurance companies and claims adjusters trying to trick crash victims, who are already under financial pressure after suffering a personal personal injury from a vehicle crash, into “settling” their injury claims for significantly less money than they’re entitled to. They can also ask you to sign away your future legal rights to No-Fault benefits and pain and suffering compensation. Don’t do it!
Our auto accident lawyers serving Pontiac, MI are here to protect you from unscrupulous insurance company claims adjusters. We work to make sure you get everything you are entitled to after a crash, from your own insurance company and from the insurance company of the driver who caused the crash and your injuries. It’s never too soon to call and have a free consultation with an experienced attorney after a motor vehicle crash in which anyone has been injured.

How long does a settlement take after an automobile crash?
It’s difficult, if not impossible, to determine how long it will take to get a settlement after an automobile crash. Each and every case is unique, which makes it a very challenging question to answer. In general, here are several factors that contribute to how long a settlement takes: the victim’s specific injuries, prognosis and current and future medical needs; whether the victim is partially or fully disabled and unable to work; whether the injuries have resulted in an impairment that affects the ability to lead a normal life; whether the injuries necessitate “excess” coverage for medical bills and lost wages; the relevant experience, track record and reputation of your Pontiac auto accident lawyer; the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company, the adjuster, the defense attorney and liability limits. (Note that attorneys who are known for going to trial can often settle cases for more money, much faster.)
