When I got into my auto accident, I chatted with someone online at Michigan Auto Law. They really stood out and seemed to care right from the start. That certainly made a big impression. I started working with Mike and Brandon. They were really on top of things and checked on me, providing me with constant updates. I then started working with Chris. He was equally as great. Chris got my case settled very quickly. I am very happy with all of the attorneys I worked with at Michigan Auto Law. This firm will be a definite recommendation.

Why Do I Need A Monroe Car Accident Lawyer?
When you’re injured in a motor vehicle crash in the area it’s never too soon to call a Monroe car accident lawyer to help you protect your rights. An experienced attorney who specializes in automobile crashes will protect your rights and to help you collect all of the No-Fault wage loss and PIP benefits you deserve. We’ll work to make sure that your medical bills get paid under our state’s auto No-Fault insurance law, too. It’s unfortunate, but Michigan’s auto law is full of hidden traps and can be very confusing for drivers.
For example, did you know that your insurance company can legally require that you provide a 30-day “notice” to them when you are injured in a hit and run crash or by an uninsured driver? You probably didn’t! Today’s insurance policies often include contract language that requires a 30 day notice, in order to recover uninsured motorist protection when you are injured in a hit and run crash or in a crash with an uninsured driver. (Trust us; this is more common than you think, with about 20% of all drivers in Michigan driving sans insurance.) When you fail to meet this “notice” requirement, that you probably didn’t know about, your policy can get voided, so you lose the ability to recover compensation for injuries and losses. Insurance companies can then leave you hanging, with huge out-of-pocket medical bills and no insurance to cover medical care or other treatment you might need in the future.
A Monroe car accident lawyer with significant experience and a focus on personal injury cases involving motor vehicle crashes will protect your rights and ensure that you don’t get caught in the “traps” that some insurance companies seem to set for consumers. Of late, these traps have included auto insurance claims adjusters who convince crash victims, who are already under a lot of pressure, to “settle” their injury claims for a lot less than they’re worth. They’re even asking them to forfeit future legal rights to No-Fault benefits and pain and suffering compensation. If you don’t have an attorney, you are at risk of giving up compensation.
Our Monroe car accident lawyers will help you and protect you, ensuring that you get everything you’re entitled to after an automobile crash, from both your own insurance company and from the insurance company for the driver who caused the crash and your injuries. That’s just one of the reasons it’s so important to schedule your free consultation with an experienced Monroe car accident lawyer immediately after any serious motor vehicle crash.

After being injured in a motor vehicle crash, the first question most people ask is: How much will a Monroe car accident lawyer cost? Many people think that they can’t hire an attorney because it’s simply unaffordable. Fortunately, that’s not true. Michigan Auto Law doesn’t ask you to pay anything – unless and until we win your case. Nothing in advance and nothing out-of-pocket. Our Monroe car accident lawyers get paid after the case is settled and after a recovery is made. It’s what is called a contingency fee, meaning if you don’t get paid, neither do we. And no matter what, every client gets our 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Yes. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Insurance industry research shows that a person who’s represented by an attorney recovers more than someone who isn’t represented by an attorney, and don’t forget, at Michigan Auto Law, you only pay when we win. Our attorneys are ready to handle your legal case, so you can focus on your own healing and financial recovery.

An experienced motor vehicle crash attorney can help you get the best possible settlement, and the medical benefits and lost wages to which you’re entitled under the auto No-Fault insurance law.

Remember, the right, experienced attorney will make sure you get the compensation you deserve and protect your rights. We want you to focus on your medical recovery, so you can go back to fully living your life.
It’s difficult to predict how long it will take to get a settlement. Each case is completely unique, though in general, the factors listed here are most likely to affect the timeline of a settlement: the specific injuries, prognosis and current/future medical needs; whether the disability is partial or complete; if the victim is able to work; whether the injuries have caused impairment that affects the patient’s ability to lead their normal life; whether the injuries require “excess” coverage for medical bills and lost wages; and the level of experience, track record and reputation of your attorney. In addition, the at-fault driver’s specific auto insurance company, the individual adjuster, defense attorney and liability limits can also impact the timeline of the case.
