Why Do I Need A St. Clair Shores Car Accident Lawyer?
When you or a loved one has been injured in motor vehicle crash in the area, you need a St. Clair Shores car accident lawyer to protect your legal right to compensation. An experienced attorney will guard your legal rights to collect No-Fault wage loss and PIP benefits, helping you get your medical bills paid under our state’s auto No-Fault insurance law. It’s very unfortunate, but Michigan’s auto law is complex and difficult to understand, which could cause you to lose out on financial compensation that you deserve, if you don’t have an experienced legal team at your side.
In just one example, have you heard about the requirement to provide a 30-day “notice” to your insurance provider when you’re injured in a hit and run or by an uninsured driver? Currently, it’s completely legal for insurance companies to have contract language in their policies that requires a 30-day notice in order for you to recover uninsured motorist protection (which you’ve paid for with your premium) when you’ve been injured in a hit and run crash or a crash with an uninsured motorist. Unfortunately, these types of scenarios are very common with approximately 20% of Michigan drivers estimated to be driving uninsured. If you miss this clause in your policy and fail to comply with this “notice” requirement in your own “uninsured motorist” policy, your policy may be voided so that you lose the right to recover any compensation for injuries and losses. Your insurance company has the right to leave you with nothing – or worse yet, expensive medical bills that you will have to pay out of pocket, with no insurance protection for potentially necessary medical care and treatment in the future. The worst thing about this? You most likely don’t even know about some of these clauses in your insurance policy.
An experienced St. Clair Shores car accident lawyer from Michigan Auto Law will protect you from these and other common missteps. We’ve also discovered that auto insurance companies and their claims adjusters have been trying to trick some victims, who are most likely already under extreme financial pressure after an injury from a motor vehicle crash, into “settling” their injury claims for significantly less than those claims are actually worth. They sometimes also ask personal injury victims to sign away future legal rights to No-Fault benefits, along with related pain and suffering compensation.
Our St. Clair Shores car accident lawyers are here to protect your rights to financial compensation after a motor vehicle crash where you or a loved one suffered a personal injury. We make sure you get everything you are entitled to after a crash, from your own insurance company and from the insurance company for the other driver. Remember, it’s never too soon to call for a free consultation with an experienced attorney after a motor vehicle crash in which anyone has suffered injuries.

More St. Clair Shores Car Accident Lawyer FAQs
What do you need to know before you hire a St. Clair Shores car accident lawyer? If you or a loved one gets injured in an automobile crash, you could be entitled to some important benefits, like pain and suffering compensation and other economic damages. But remember: You’re more likely to recover the true (higher) value for your personal injury claim when you hire the right attorney to protect your rights to compensation. Read through our attorney FAQs below or call us now to speak to an experienced attorney. There’s never a fee or obligation.
One of the first questions you’re likely to ask after an injury from a motor vehicle crash will most likely be: How much will it cost to have an experienced St. Clair Shores car accident lawyer represent me? No worries, you’re not the first (or the last) person to wonder about that. Many people believe that hiring a personal injury attorney will simply be too expensive, but that’s simply not true. At Michigan Auto Law, we never ask you to pay a cent, unless and until we win your case – you pay nothing up front or out-of-pocket. That’s because we work on a contingency fee, which means we get paid if and when a recovery is made. However, no matter what, each and every client gets our 100% client satisfaction guarantee.
Yes. But don’t take our word for it. The insurance industry has conducted research, which demonstrated that an injury victim who is represented by an attorney recovers significantly more than someone who is not represented by an attorney. At Michigan Auto Law, you don’t pay anything, unless and until we recover your settlement. Our experienced St. Clair Shores car accident lawyers manage every aspect of your case, while you focus on healing and putting your life back together. And while you recover, we’re here for you, ready to answer any question you have – about the case, the law, the judge, the defense attorney, the insurance company, the adjuster or anything else.
While you’re not required to hire an attorney after a vehicle crash that isn’t your fault, it’s usually in your best interest to do so. An experienced St. Clair Shores car accident lawyer (like the attorneys at Michigan Auto Law, who are specialists in car, truck and motorcycle crash cases) will make sure you get the best possible settlement. Your attorney will ensure that you receive all of the medical benefits and lost wages payments to which you’re entitled, now and in the future, under the auto No-Fault insurance law. We will also pursue pain and suffering compensation and any other economic damages. An experienced St. Clair Shores car accident lawyer will help make sure you get the compensation you deserve and your legal rights are protected.
How long will it take to get a settlement after a motor vehicle crash? Every case is completely unique in its circumstances, so that’s very difficult to predict. In general, contributors to the case timeline include: specific injuries, prognosis, and current and potential future medical needs; whether the victim is partially or fully disabled; whether injuries have led to an impairment that affects the ability to live a normal life; whether injuries will require “excess” coverage for medical bills and lost wages; the relevant experience, settlement track record and reputation of the victim’s attorney; the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company, the claims adjuster, the defense attorney and any applicable liability limits. Note that attorneys who are known to go to trial can often get larger settlements, much faster.
