Do I Need A Lawyer For A Car Accident In Detroit, MI?

If you are injured in a car accident in Detroit, MI you are not required to hire a lawyer but it is in your best interest because an experienced attorney can help protect your legal rights to collect Michigan No-Fault wage loss and PIP benefits and get your medical bills paid. Michigan’s No-Fault law can present many potential hurdles for the uninformed consumer.

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 attorney 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 Detroit car accident attorney immediately after any motor vehicle crash in which you are injured.
