Why Do I Need a Grand Haven Car Accident Lawyer?
When you’re injured in a vehicle crash in the area, you need a Grand Haven car accident lawyer to help you. An experienced attorney will help protect your rights to collect all of No-Fault wage loss and PIP benefits you deserve, while we work to ensure that your medical bills are paid under our state’s auto No-Fault insurance law. It’s unfortunate, but Michigan’s auto law can be very confusing for uninformed consumers.
In one example, insurance companies can legally require that you provide a 30-day “notice” to them when you are injured in a hit and run accident or by an uninsured driver. A lot of today’s insurance policies include contract language that requires a 30 day notice to recover uninsured motorist protection if you are injured in a hit and run crash or with an uninsured driver. (This is more common than you may think, with approximately 20% of all drivers in Michigan driving without insurance.) If you fail to meet this “notice” requirement in your own “uninsured motorist” insurance policy, your policy can be voided, causing you to lose the ability to recover compensation for injuries and losses. These insurance companies can then leave you with nothing – or worse yet, with huge out-of-pocket medical bills and no insurance to cover medical care and treatment you may need in the future.
A Grand Haven car accident lawyer with significant experience and a strong focus on personal injury cases can protect your rights and save you from the “traps” that some insurance companies seem to set for their consumers. Lately, these traps includes auto insurance claims adjusters who try to convince victims, who are already under a lot of financial pressure, to “settle” their personal injury claims for less than they’re worth, or even asking them to forfeit their future legal rights to No-Fault benefits and pain and suffering compensation.
Our Grand Haven car accident lawyers are here to help you and protect you, so you get everything you’re entitled to after a vehicle crash, from your insurance company and the insurance company for the driver who caused your crash and injuries. It’s just one of the reasons it’s so important to schedule a free consultation with an experienced Grand Haven car accident lawyers immediately after a vehicle crash where injuries have been sustained.

One of your first questions many people ask after a vehicle crash is: How much will a Grand Haven car accident lawyer cost? It’s a great question, since many people believe that hiring an attorney is unaffordable. Fortunately, that’s not true. Michigan Auto Law won’t ask you to pay anything – unless and until we win your case. You won’t pay anything in advance or out-of-pocket. Our Grand Haven car accident lawyers only get paid after the case is settled and a recovery is made. It’s called a contingency fee, which means we get paid when you do.

An experienced Grand Haven car accident lawyer will help you get the best possible settlement, helping you get the medical benefits and lost wages to which you’re entitled under the auto No-Fault insurance law.

How long will it take to get a settlement? That’s a tough question to answer, since each case is completely unique. In general, here are some factors that can affect how long a settlement will take: your specific injuries, your prognosis and current/future medical needs; whether you are partially or completely disabled; if you are able to work; whether your injuries have caused impairment that affects your ability to lead a normal life; whether your injuries require “excess” coverage for medical bills and lost wages; and the specific relevant experience, track record and reputation of your attorney. The at-fault driver’s specific auto insurance company, the individual adjuster, defense attorney and liability limits can also affect the timeline of the case.
