Maria Polowniak from Brighton, MI
Jordan I feel rescued me from a free fall with a law firm that I did not trust. I had many reasons that Bernstein and Bernstein continually earned my disrespect. I attempted to resolve issues with them directly but was unable to get them to follow through with promises made etc. Jordan was able to provide me with a peaceful state of mind. He was completely candid with me and listened to what I had to say and to what I had experienced. I like a straight shooter. I also like to know the professional I hire is able to deliver. Given all the prior defects Jordan made it a good experience.

Why Do I Need A Car Accident Attorney For A Brighton Crash?

An experienced car accident attorney representing Brighton crash victims is there to protect your legal rights to collect No-Fault wage loss and PIP benefits and help you get your medical bills paid for under our state’s auto No-Fault insurance law. If you’re not a lawyer, Michigan’s auto law can present traps that can cause you to lose rights and compensation. 

For example, take providing “notice” if you get injured in a hit and run or by an uninsured driver. Many insurance policies have added contract language that requires 30 days notice in order to recover uninsured motorist protection, when you are injured in a hit and run crash. Unfortunately, hit-and-run crashes are quite common with approximately 20% of all drivers in Michigan driving uninsured. If you fail to comply with the “notice” requirement in your own “uninsured motorist” policy, which you may not have noticed, your policy can be voided and you lose the ability to recover compensation for injuries and losses. This notice clause can leave you with nothing after a vehicle crash, or worse yet, with expensive medical bills to pay and no insurance coverage for medical care and treatment needed in the future.  

An experienced car accident attorney representing Brighton victims will protect you from those kinds of traps for the unwary. In another example, you may encounter auto insurance companies and claims adjusters who try to trick vehicle crash victims, who are already under financial pressure after a crash, into “settling” their personal injury claims for a lot less than they’re worth. They may even attempt to trick you into giving up all of your future legal rights to No-Fault benefits and pain and suffering compensation.

Our car accident attorneys representing Brighton victims are here to help and protect you. We make sure you receive everything to which you are entitled after a crash, from your own insurance company and from the insurance company of the careless driver who caused the crash. It’s important that you call and schedule a free consultation with an experienced lawyer for a vehicle crash immediately if it leaves you with injuries.

An experienced lawyer, like the ones at Michigan Auto Law, who specialize in car, truck and motorcycle crash cases, can help ensure that you get the best possible legal settlement.

Wouldn’t you rather focus on your medical recovery and getting back to fully living your life?

How long does settlement take?

How long does it take to get a settlement? Since each case is so unique, that’s a very difficult question to answer. In general, there are several factors that contribute to the timeline of a vehicle crash settlement. These can include: your specific injuries, prognosis and current and future medical needs; whether you’re partially or fully disabled and disallowed or unable to work; whether your injuries have caused an impairment that affects your ability to lead a normal life; whether your injuries necessitate additional coverage for medical bills and lost wages; the relevant experience, proven track record and strong reputation of your lawyer (lawyers who are known for going to trial can typically settle cases for more money, often much faster); the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company, the adjuster, the defense lawyer and the applicable liability limits.
