Why Do I Need a Holland Car Accident Lawyer?
If you are injured in a vehicle crash in the area, you will need the help of a Holland car accident lawyer. An experienced attorney like the ones at Michigan Auto Law will help ensure that your legal rights to collect No-Fault wage loss and PIP benefits are protected. They will also make sure that your medical bills get paid under Michigan’s auto No-Fault insurance law. Unfortunately, Michigan’s current auto laws can present both confusion and hurdles if you don’t have a knowledgeable legal team working on your behalf.
For example, did you know that you may be required to provide “notice” if you are injured in a hit and run or in an vehicle crash with an uninsured driver? This is just one of many factors that most consumers don’t understand about insurance. Insurance policies can have language in their contracts that requires a 30 day notice to recover uninsured motorist protection and coverage, which may also apply if you are injured in a hit and run crash. (These types of crashes are very common with an estimated 20% of Michigan drivers driving without insurance.) If you fail to comply with the “notice” requirement in your “uninsured motorist” policy, your policy can be voided, and you can lose the ability to recover compensation for your injuries and losses. This leaves you with nothing, or worse, with expensive medical bills and without insurance for future medical care.
An experienced Holland car accident lawyer can help protect you from other unexpected “traps,” too. Did you know that some auto insurance company claims adjusters may try to trick drivers into “settling” their personal injury claims for a lot less than they should? These errant claim adjusters may also try to get you to forfeit future legal rights to No-Fault benefits and potential pain and suffering compensation.
Our Holland car accident lawyers can protect you and help you get through the challenging time after a personal injury from a vehicle crash. We’re here to ensure you get everything you are entitled to, from your insurance company and the insurance company of the negligent driver. It’s very important that you call to schedule a free consultation with an experienced attorney after any vehicle crash in which you or a family member are injured.

How long does it take to get a settlement? That’s a difficult question to answer, as each case is completely unique. In general, here are some of the factors that contribute to the case timeline for a settlement. These include: the details of the injuries, prognosis and current/future medical needs; whether the victim is partially or fully disabled and/or unable to work; whether injuries have resulted in impairment that affects the ability to lead a normal life; whether the resulting medical condition will necessitate “excess” coverage for medical bills and lost wages; the track record and reputation of the victim’s attorney (attorneys that are known for going to trial can often settle personal injury cases for more money in a shorter timeline); the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company, the claim adjuster, the defense attroney and the insurance liability limits.
