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

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

For example, as a consumer, you may need to provide “notice” if you are injured in a hit and run or by an uninsured driver. Many insurance companies include contract language in their policies that requires this 30 days advance notice, in order for the customer (you) to recover uninsured motorist protection. (Did you know? Approximately 20% of all drivers in the state of Michigan are driving uninsured, according to the Insurance Information Institute.) Failing to comply with the “notice” requirement in your own “uninsured motorist” policy could mean that your policy will be voided and you will lose the right to recover compensation for your injuries and losses. Failing to give this notice could leave you with nothing – or worse yet, expensive medical bills that you’ll have to pay out of pocket and no insurance to pay for potential future medical care and treatment.  

An experienced attorney can protect you from inadvertently giving up rights to financial compensation. Lately, auto insurance companies and claims adjusters sometimes try to trick victims, who may already be under financial pressure after a personal injury from a crash, into “settling” their automobile crash injury claims for significantly less than they’re worth, forfeiting all of their future legal rights to No-Fault benefits, and possibly losing the right to all future pain and suffering compensation.

Our Grand Rapids car accident lawyers are here to help and protect you and your loved ones. We make sure you receive everything you are entitled to after a motor vehicle crash – from your own insurance company and from the insurance company of the negligent driver who caused your injuries. Don’t miss out on any of your legal rights to compensation for your injuries. It’s important to call now and schedule a free consultation with an experienced attorney as soon as possible after any motor vehicle crash where a personal injury has occurred.

How much does a lawyer cost for a car accident in Grand Rapids, MI?

In Grand Rapids, MI, a car accident lawyer doesn’t cost you anything unless they win your case. A one-third (1/3) contingency fee is the fee arrangement that most auto accident attorneys will charge in Michigan. An attorney cannot charge a contingency fee in excess of 1/3 or 33%

At Michigan Auto Law, we never ask for any fees, unless and until we win your case. There’s no up-front or out-of-pocket payment. Our attorneys are paid only if a recovery is made for you.

Do I need a lawyer for a car accident in Grand Rapids, MI where I’m not at fault?

While you are not legally required to hire a car accident lawyer after a crash that isn’t your fault in Grand Rapids, MI, it’s definitely in your best interest to do so. An experienced attorney, like the ones at Michigan Auto Law, will ensure you get the best possible legal settlement. We help ensure that you can access all of the medical benefits and lost wages payments you are entitled to – now and in the future – under the auto No-Fault insurance law, along with pain and suffering compensation and other financial compensation. The right attorney can help you win the proper settlement while protecting your legal rights.

How long does a settlement take?

Each case is unique, so this is a difficult question. In general, there are several factors that can help estimate how long a settlement could take. These include: injuries, prognosis, current and future medical needs; whether you are partially or fully disabled from working now and/or in the future; whether your injuries affect your ability to lead your normal life; whether your injuries may necessitate “excess” coverage for medical bills and lost wages; the experience, track record of results and reputation of your attorney; the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company, adjuster, defense attorney and liability limits.
