Why Do I Need a Battle Creek Car Accident Lawyer?
When you are injured in a crash in your area, you need a Battle Creek car accident lawyer to help you. An experienced attorney will protect your 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. Unfortunately, Michigan’s auto law can be confusing for the uninformed consumer.
In just one example, insurance companies can require that you provide “notice” if you are injured in a hit and run or by an uninsured driver. A large segment of today’s insurance policies have contract language that requires 30 days notice, in order to recover uninsured motorist protection if you are injured in a hit and run car collision. (This is common with approximately 20% of all drivers in Michigan driving without insurance.) If you fail to comply with this “notice” requirement in your “uninsured motorist” insurance policy, your policy will be voided and you may lose the ability to recover compensation for your injuries and losses. The insurance companies then leave you with nothing – or worse, with expensive out-of-pocket medical bills and no insurance to pay for needed medical care and treatment in the future.
A Battle Creek car accident lawyer with experience and focus on vehicular injury crash cases can protect your rights, in spite of the “traps” that some insurance companies seem to set for unwary consumers. Lately, the traps and tricks includes auto insurance companies and claims adjusters who may try to convince area residents, who are already under financial pressure, to “settle” their injury claims for a lot less than they’re worth, or even forfeit their future legal rights to No-Fault benefits and any pain and suffering compensation.
Our Battle Creek car accident lawyers are committed to helping you and protecting you. We make sure you get everything you’re entitled to after a crash, both from your own insurance company and from the insurance company for the driver who caused your crash and the resulting injuries. That’s just one reason that it’s so critical to call and schedule a free consultation with one of our experienced attorneys immediately after any injury after a collision.

One of your first questions after you’re involved in an injury after a collision might be: How much does a Battle Creek car accident lawyer cost? You’re not alone in wondering, since so many people believe that hiring an attorney is prohibitively expensive. That’s not true! Michigan Auto Law will never ask you to pay anything unless and until we win your case. You don’t pay a dime up front or out-of-pocket. Our attorneys get paid after the case is settled and only when a recovery is made first. That’s called a contingency fee and it means we get paid when you get paid. We have to win your case first. And no matter what, you always get our 100% client satisfaction guarantee.
Yes! The insurance industry’s own research shows that a victim who is represented by an experienced attorney recovers much more than someone who is not represented by an attorney. Also, at Michigan Auto Law, you only pay if and when we win. Our attorneys handle every aspect of your case, as you focus on recovering and putting your life back together. We are here to answer questions about the case, the process, the law, the insurance company or anything else you need to know. We’re here for you and we’re on your side.
You are not legally required to hire a Battle Creek car accident lawyer after a crash where you are not at fault. We can assure you, however, that it’s in your best interests to do so. An experienced Battle Creek car accident lawyer, one who specializes in car, truck and motorcycle crash cases, will ensure you get the best possible legal settlement. Your Michigan Auto Law attorney can help you get all of the medical benefits and lost wages to which you’re entitled – now and in the future – under the auto No-Fault insurance law.

We want our clients to focus on their medical recovery so they can get back to fully living their lives.
How long does it take to get a settlement after a motor vehicle crash? Since each case is so unique, that’s a very difficult question to answer. In general, there are several factors that can affect how long a settlement will take. These might include: your specific injuries, your prognosis and current and future medical needs; whether you are partially or fully disabled; whether you are able to work; whether your injuries have resulted in an impairment that affects your ability to lead your normal life; whether your injuries will require “excess” coverage for medical bills and lost wages; and the relevant experience, related track record and reputation of your Battle Creek car accident lawyer (attorneys who are known for going to trial can often settle cases for more money, much faster). The at-fault driver’s auto insurance company, adjuster, defense attorney and liability limits can also affect the case timeline.
