Why Do I Need a Sterling Heights Car Accident Lawyer?
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle crash in the area, you need a Sterling Heights car accident lawyer to help you. An experienced attorney can protect your legal rights to collect No-Fault wage loss and PIP benefits and ensure that you get your medical bills paid under Michigan’s auto No-Fault insurance law. Our state’s auto law can present unexpected problems for unwary consumers.
For example, consider the “notice” clause, which applies if you are ever injured in a hit and run or by an uninsured driver. Many insurance companies have contract language in their policies that require a 30 day notice, in order to recover under uninsured motorist protection if you are injured in a hit and run crash. Unfortunately these types of crashes can be 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, it could mean that your policy gets voided and you lose the ability to recover any financial compensation for your injuries and losses. You could be left with nothing, or worse yet, with expensive medical bills to pay out of pocket, with no insurance to pay for necessary medical care and treatment in your future.
An experienced Sterling Heights car accident lawyer can protect you from other traps for the uneducated consumer, too. Lately, some auto insurance companies and claims adjusters have tried to trick victim, who are already under financial pressure after a personal injury from an automobile crash, into “settling” their personal injury claims for a lot less than what they’re worth. They may also try to convince a victim to give up future legal rights to No-Fault benefits, along with pain and suffering compensation.
Our Sterling Heights car accident lawyers can help you and protect your rights. We are committed to making sure you receive everything you are entitled to after a personal injury from a crash, from both your own insurance company and from the insurance company of the negligent driver. That’s just one of several reasons that it’s so important to call and set up your free consultation with one of our experienced attorneys right away after any motor vehicle crash in which you or a family member are injured.

In general, there are several factors that determine how long a settlement will take. These factors include: your unique injuries, prognosis and current and future medical needs; whether you’re partially or fully disabled and unable to work; whether your injuries caused an impairment that affects your ability to lead a normal life; whether your injuries will require “excess” healthcare coverage for medical bills and lost earnings; the related experience, proven track record and reputation of your attorney (attorneys known for going to trial can often settle cases for more money, much faster); the at-fault driver’s specific auto insurance company, the adjuster, the experience and abilities of the defense attorney and the case liability limits.
