My attorney Jeffrey Bussell was great. He met with me closer to my home, which made things easier and convenient for me. Jeff answered all of my concerns and kept me in the loop at all times with my case. I was in contact with his assistant Julie and worked closely with her. Julie and Jeff were a great team.

Why Do I Need A Lansing Car Accident Lawyer?
If you’re injured in a crash in Lansing, you need a Lansing car accident lawyer to help you. An experienced attorney will protect your legal rights to collect No-Fault wage loss and PIP benefits and help ensure that your medical bills are paid for under our state’s auto No-Fault insurance law. If you’re not intimately familiar with law, Michigan’s auto law can present traps that cause you to lose rights and compensation.
For example, many insurance companies require their customers to provide “notice” if they get injured in a hit and run crash or by an uninsured motorist. Many insurance policies have added contract language that requires this 30 days notice, in order to recover the uninsured motorist protection, when someone is injured in a hit and run crash or by an uninsured driver. Unfortunately, approximately 20% of all drivers in Michigan drive uninsured. If you fail to comply with the “notice” requirement in your own “uninsured motorist” policy (which you may not have ever noticed), your policy can be voided and you end up losing the ability to recover compensation for injuries and losses. This 30-day notice clause can leave crash victims like you with nothing after the crash, or worse, with expensive medical bills and no insurance coverage for medical care and treatment needed in the future.
An experienced Lansing car accident lawyer will protect you from making mistakes that can hurt you financially. In another example, you could run into auto insurance companies and claims adjusters who try to trick Lansing residents, many of whom are already under huge financial pressure after a vehicle crash, into “settling” their personal injury claims for a lot less than they should. These insurance company representatives may even try to trick you into giving up your future legal rights to No-Fault benefits, along with pain and suffering compensation.
Our Lansing car accident lawyers are here to help you and protect you. We make sure you receive everything you are entitled to after a vehicle crash, from both your own insurance company and from the insurance company of the careless driver. It’s important that you call and schedule a free consultation with an experienced attorney as soon as possible after a crash that leaves you, or anyone else, with injuries.

We can assure you, however, it’s usually a good idea to hire an experienced Lansing car accident lawyer like the ones at Michigan Auto Law.

Figuring out how long it will take to win a settlement is challenging, since each case is completely unique. Overall, these are some of the factors that contribute to the timeline of a settlement: the victim’s specific injuries, prognosis and current and future medical needs; whether the victim is partially or fully disabled; if the victim is disallowed or unable to work; whether the injuries have caused an impairment that affects the ability to lead a normal life; whether the victim’s injuries necessitate additional coverage for medical bills and lost wages; the relevant experience, proven track record and reputation of your attorney; the at-fault driver’s auto insurance provider, the adjuster, the defense lawyer and the applicable liability limits. Note that attorneys who are known for going to trial can typically settle cases for more money, often much faster.
