Why Do I Need A Muskegon Car Accident Attorney?
When you have been injured in a vehicle crash in the area, you need the best Muskegon car accident attorney you can get to help you win the compensation you’re entitled to. An experienced lawyer will protect your legal rights to collect No-Fault wage loss and PIP benefits, and help you get medical bills paid under Michigan’s auto No-Fault insurance law. Unfortunately, our state’s auto law can present a maze of challenges for any vehicle crash victim.
For example, you probably don’t know that you may need to provide “notice” to your insurance company if you’re injured in a hit and run or by an uninsured driver. Some insurance companies include contract language in policies that requires a 30 day notice, in order for the customer (the policyholder who pays the premium) to recover their uninsured motorist protection. (This is common, with approximately 20% of drivers in Michigan driving uninsured, according to the Insurance Information Institute.) If you fail to comply with the “notice” requirement in your own “uninsured motorist” policy (which you may not even be aware of), it could mean that your policy gets voided and you lose the right to recover compensation for injuries and losses. If you make the mistake of failing to give the required notice, you’re left with nothing – or worse yet, with expensive medical bills to pay out of pocket and no insurance to pay for potential future medical care.
An experienced Muskegon car accident attorney can protect you from inadvertently and irreversibly giving up your rights to financial compensation. In another recent trend, we’re seeing auto insurance companies and claims adjusters who try to trick vehicle crash victims, who are already under incredible financial pressure after an injury into “settling” their claims for significantly less than they’re truly worth, forfeiting all of their future legal rights to No-Fault benefits, and possibly losing the right to future pain and suffering compensation, too.
Our Muskegon car accident attorneys are here to make sure you and your loved ones don’t get caught in any insurance company traps. We make sure you get everything you’re entitled to after a crash – from both your own insurance company and the negligent driver’s insurance company. Don’t give up any of your legal rights to financial compensation for your injuries. Call an experienced lawyer and schedule a free consultation immediately after any personal injury suffer after a motor vehicle crash.

One of the first questions after a serious vehicle crash may be: How much does a Muskegon car accident attorney cost? If you’re asking that question, don’t worry. You’re in good company. Many people believe that hiring an experienced lawyer is prohibitively expensive, but that’s not necessarily true. At Michigan Auto Law, we never ask our clients for any fees, unless and until we win your case – nothing up-front and no out-of-pocket payment. Our attorneys are paid only if and when a recovery is made for you. It is what is called a contingency fee. We only get paid if you get paid – so we need to win your case first. And you don’t have to pay for our 100% client satisfaction guarantee either.
It is, but don’t just take our word for it. The insurance industry has conducted research that shows that people who are represented by experienced Muskegon car accident attorneys recover more than people who are not. And at Michigan Auto Law, remember – you don’t pay anything unless we win. Our lawyers take care of the details of your case so you can focus on recovery and getting back to living your full life. We’re here 24/7 to answer any and all questions you have about the case, the process, the law, the insurance company or anything else. We’re on your side and it’s definitely worth it.
No, you’re not legally required to hire a Muskegon car accident attorney after a vehicle crash that’s not your fault, though we’d recommend it and it’s in your best interest to do so. An experienced lawyer, like the ones at Michigan Auto Law, will make sure you get the best possible legal settlement and 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. This includes pain and suffering and other financial compensation. The right Muskegon car accident attorney will help you recover the best possible settlement and protect your legal rights.
How long will it take to get a settlement after a vehicle crash? Since each case is so unique, this is a very difficult question to answer. In general, there are so many factors that can impact the timeline for a settlement, including injuries, prognosis, current and future medical needs; whether you are partially or fully disabled from working; whether your injuries affect your ability to lead a normal day-to-day life; whether your injuries justify “excess” coverage for medical bills and lost wages; the relevant experience, track record of results and reputation of your lawyer that is representing you; the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company, adjuster, defense lawyer and applicable liability limits.
