Why Do I Need an Jackson Michigan Car Accident Lawyer?
If you are injured in a vehicle crash in the area, you need a Jackson Michigan car accident lawyer to help you. An experienced attorney will help protect your legal right to collect No-Fault wage loss and PIP benefits and to get medical bills paid for under our state’s auto No-Fault insurance law. Unfortunately, Michigan’s auto law can present many challenges for the unwary consumer, so it’s best to have an experienced attorney at your side.
Take, for example, the requirement of providing “notice” if you’re injured in a hit and run or due to the negligence of an uninsured driver. Insurance policies can have contract language that requires 30 days notice, in order to recover uninsured motorist protection. Unfortunately, it’s quite common with approximately 20% of all drivers in Michigan driving uninsured. If you fail to comply with the “notice” requirement in your “uninsured motorist” policy, your policy gets voided and you lose the ability to recover compensation for injuries and losses. This is your insurance company, leaving you with nothing. Worse yet, they leave you with expensive medical bills to pay yourself and no insurance for future needed medical care and treatment.
An experienced Jackson, Michigan car accident lawyer can protect you from similar traps for the unwary, too. Lately, we’re also seeing more cases of auto insurance companies and their claims adjusters trying to trick Jackson County victims, who are already under severe financial pressure, into “settling” their injury claims after a vehicle crash. Of course, these claims adjusters offer much less compensation than the case is actually worth and the crash victim ends up forfeiting all of their future legal rights to No-Fault benefits and pain and suffering compensation.
Our Jackson, Michigan car accident lawyers are here to guide you and protect your rights. We make sure you receive everything to which you are entitled after a crash, from your own insurance company and the insurance company of the driver who caused the crash. That’s just one reason that it’s important to call and schedule your free consultation with an experienced Jackson, Michigan car accident lawyer immediately after any motor vehicle crash in which you or a family member are injured.
