Michigan Auto Law attorneys are also the most awarded in the city and in the state.

What’s more important than the legal honors and awards our attorneys receive from Hour Detroit and Crain’s Detroit Business are the reasons behind them: we work harder to help our clients and their families get through what is likely one of the most difficult, emotional and stressful experiences in their lives, and we do it with caring and communication. The recognition and the honors and awards we receive reflect the hard work, caring and communication that our attorneys put into helping you.

Why Do I Need a Detroit Car Accident Lawyer?
If you are injured in a collision in the Motor City, you need a Detroit car accident lawyer to help you. An experienced attorney can protect your legal rights to collect No-Fault wage loss and PIP benefits and to get your medical bills paid for under our state’s auto No-Fault insurance law. Michigan’s auto law can present many traps for the unwary.
Take, for example, providing “notice” if you are injured in a hit and run or injured by an uninsured driver. Many insurance policies have contract language requiring 30 days notice to recover uninsured motorist protection if you are injured in a hit and run collision, which unfortunately can be common with approximately 50% of all drivers in the Motor City driving uninsured. Failing to comply with the “notice” requirement in your own “uninsured motorist” policy will mean your policy will be voided and you lose the ability to recover compensation for your injuries and losses, leaving you with nothing – or worse yet, leaving you with lots of expensive medical bills to pay out of pocket and no insurance to pay for needed medical care and treatment in your future.
An experienced Detroit car accident lawyer can protect you from traps for the unwary. Sadly this lately includes auto insurance companies and claims adjusters who try to trick city residents who are already under financial pressure into “settling” their injury claims for much less than they’re worth and forfeiting all of their future legal rights to No-Fault benefits and pain and suffering compensation.
Our Detroit car accident lawyers are here to help you and protect you. We can make sure you receive everything you are entitled to after a crash from your own insurance company and from the insurance company of the negligent driver who caused your injuries. That’s why it’s so important to call and have a free consultation with an experienced attorney immediately after any motor vehicle crash in which you are injured.

We know that one of your first questions after being injured in a vehicle crash is: How much does a Detroit car accident lawyer cost me? You’re not alone in wondering. Many people imagine that hiring an attorney is expensive. Not so! At Michigan Auto Law, we will never ask you to pay any fees unless and until we win your case. You don’t pay anything up front or out-of-pocket. Our attorneys are paid at the end of the case and only if a recovery is made for you first. This is called a contingency fee, which means we only get paid if you get paid – which means we win your case first. And you always get our 100% client satisfaction guarantee.
Don’t take our word for it. The insurance industry’s own data shows that a person who is represented by an experienced attorney recovers significantly more than a person who is not represented by an attorney. Also, at Michigan Auto Law, you don’t pay unless we win. Our Detroit car accident lawyers will handle all aspects of your injury case so you can focus on recovering and trying to put your life back together. We are always here to answer any questions about the case, the process, the law, the insurance company, the adjuster, the judge or anything else. We’re here for you.
You are not legally required to hire a Detroit car accident lawyer after a vehicle crash that isn’t your fault. But it’s in your best interest to do so. An experienced attorney, like the ones at Michigan Auto Law, who specialize in car, truck and motorcycle crash cases, will ensure you get the best possible legal settlement. Your attorney can help insure that you receive all of the medical benefits and lost wages payments you’re entitled to – both now and in the future – under the auto No-Fault insurance law as well as pain and suffering compensation and other economic damages. The right attorney can help you win compensation and protect your legal rights, so you can focus on your medical recovery and getting back to fully living your life.
How long does it take to get a settlement after a crash? Each case is unique, so it’s a difficult question to answer but in general there are several factors that can help answer how long a settlement will take. These include: your injuries, prognosis and current future medical needs; whether you are partially or fully disabled from working; whether your injuries have resulted in an impairment that affects your ability to lead your normal life; whether your injuries will necessitate “excess” coverage for medical bills and lost wages; the experience, track record and reputation of your attorney (attorneys known for going to trial can settle cases for money and often much faster); the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company, adjuster, defense attorney and liability limits.
