Do I Need A Lawyer For A Car Accident In Traverse City, MI?

If you are injured in a car accident in Traverse City, MI you are not required to hire a lawyer but it is in your best interest. An experienced car accident attorney can help protect your legal rights to collect Michigan No-Fault wage loss, PIP benefits and get your medical bills paid. It’s very disheartening, but our state’s auto law seems to allow insurance companies to set financial traps for unwary consumers. 

For example, your policy may require you to provide “notice” to your insurance provider if you have been injured in a hit and run or by an uninsured driver. It’s legal for insurance policies to have contract language requiring 30 days notice, in order to recover on your uninsured motorist protection if you were injured in a hit and run collision or in a crash with an uninsured motorist. Unfortunately, those types of vehicle crashes are relatively common, with approximately 20% of Michigan drivers estimated to be driving uninsured. If you inadvertently fail to comply with the “notice” requirement in the “uninsured motorist” policy that you pay for, your policy can be voided and you will lose the right to recover compensation for injuries and losses. It’s hard to believe that your insurance company has the right to leave you with nothing, isn’t it? Worse yet, you could be left with lots of expensive medical bills to pay out of pocket, and no insurance for needed medical care and treatment in the future. And the worst part? You probably don’t even know that you have to give that notice. 

An experienced Traverse City car accident attorney will be there to protect you from those and other common consumer missteps. Lately, our associates have discovered that some auto insurance companies and their claims adjusters try to trick victims, who are most likely already under financial pressure after an injury from a motor vehicle crash, into “settling” their injury claims for a lot less than they’re worth. In the process, they may also ask crash victims to sign away future legal rights to No-Fault benefits and pain and suffering compensation.

When you’re represented by Michigan Auto Law, our Traverse City car accident lawyers are there for you 24/7, ready to protect your rights to compensation. We’re here for you, making sure you get everything you’re entitled to after a vehicle crash – from your own insurance company and from the negligent driver’s insurance company. Remember, it’s a good idea to call and schedule a free consultation with an experienced attorney as soon as possible after a vehicle crash in which your or anyone else has been injured.

No, you don’t have to hire a Traverse City car accident lawyer after a vehicle crash that’s not your fault. There’s no law requiring it, however, we’d suggest that you do so as soon as possible after any vehicle collision in which someone is injured. An experienced attorney, like the ones at Michigan Auto Law, will make sure you get the largest possible settlement for your case.

How long does settlement after a vehicle crash take?

It’s tough to predict exactly how long it will take to get a settlement. Every case is unique in its details, so estimating a timeline can be impossible. However, there are some typical factors that can help determine how long a personal injury case will take to settle, like: the victim’s injuries, prognosis and current and future medical needs; whether the victim is partially or fully disabled from working; whether the injuries have resulted in an impairment that affects the ability to lead a normal life; whether the injuries necessitate “excess” coverage for medical bills and lost wages; the personal injury experience, track record and reputation of the specific attorney (note that attorneys who are known for going to trial can often settle cases for more money, much faster); the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company, the adjuster, the defense attorney and liability limits.
