Do I Need A Lawyer For A Car Accident In Michigan?
In Michigan, if you are injured in a car accident, you aren’t required to hire a lawyer but it is in your best interest. An experienced attorney can help protect your legal rights to collect Michigan No-Fault wage loss, PIP benefits and get your medical bills paid. The state’s No-Fault insurance law is complex and can present many traps for the unwary. That’s why having a skilled attorney from our law firm is so important.
Take for example giving “notice” after an automobile crash. If you’re injured in an automobile crash and you don’t file your application for No-Fault benefits in time, you may end up forfeiting all of your No-Fault PIP benefits forever under our strict one-year statute of limitations. The same applies if you do not submit and make sure an expensive medical bill is paid within one year of the date incurred. Or consider if you were injured by a hit-and-run driver, or involved in a crash with a driver who it later turns out to be driving uninsured. Failing to comply with the “notice” requirements in your own “uninsured motorist” policy can mean your policy will be voided and you lose the ability to recover compensation for your injuries and losses, leaving you with nothing – or worse yet, leaving you with lots of expensive medical bills to pay out of pocket and no insurance to pay for needed medical care and treatment in your future.
Traps for the unwary also exist when it comes to your claims adjuster from your own auto insurance company. Did you know that the Supreme Court in this state has ruled that your own claims adjuster doesn’t have to share what you are legally entitled to with you? They can also ask you to sign a release right after your crash, basically asking you to sign away your rights to future No-Fault benefits and injury compensation.
An experienced Michigan car accident lawyer from our firm can help you and protect you. We can make sure you receive everything you are entitled to after a crash from your own insurance company and from the insurance company of the negligent driver who caused your injuries. That’s why it’s so important to call Michigan Auto Law and have a free consultation with one of our experienced attorneys from immediately after a motor vehicle crash in which you or a loved one are injured.

More Michigan Car Accident Lawyer FAQs
What else do you need to know if you’re considering hiring a Michigan car accident lawyer after a crash? If you or a loved one are injured in a crash, you may be entitled to important benefits, pain and suffering compensation and other economic damages.

Is it worth getting a lawyer for a car accident in Michigan?
If you are injured in a car accident in Michigan it is worth getting a lawyer because the insurance industry has conducted their own research showing that people who are represented by experienced attorneys recover more than people who are not represented by attorneys.
Also, at Michigan Auto Law, you don’t pay unless we win. Our attorneys will handle all aspects of your injury case so you can focus on recovering and trying to put your life back together. We are always here to answer any questions about the case, the process, the law, the insurance company, the adjuster, the judge or anything else. We’re here for you.
How much does a Michigan car accident lawyer cost?
In Michigan, a car accident lawyer doesn’t cost you anything unless they win your case. A one-third (1/3) contingency fee is the fee arrangement that most personal injury attorneys will charge in Michigan. An attorney cannot charge a contingency fee in excess of 1/3 or 33%.
At Michigan Auto Law, we will never ask you to pay any attorney fees unless and until we win your case. You do not pay anything up front or out-of-pocket. Our attorneys are paid at the end of the case and only if a recovery is made for you first.
On top of that, you and each and every one of our clients will get our 100% client satisfaction guarantee.
What type of attorney deals with automobile crashes?
Hiring an experienced Michigan car accident lawyer will help you understand how much your case is worth. He or she will know how to prove all the harms and losses you have suffered. Most importantly, your attorney will know how to maximize your settlement and how to negotiate with the insurance companies to get you the full value of your case. In this state, this can include compensation for losses such as current and future medical costs, lost wages and future loss of earnings, and pain and suffering compensation for your injuries. Having an attorney who has a proven record of settlements will increase the settlement value of an injury claim.
Do I need to get an attorney for a car accident that isn’t my fault in Michigan?
In Michigan, you are not legally required to hire a car accident lawyer after a crash that isn’t your fault. However, doing so is often in your best interests to make the best possible legal settlement. An attorney that specializes in auto crash cases can help you determine if you’re entitled to pain and suffering compensation or other economic damages. Similarly, they can help insure that you receive all of the medical benefits and lost wages payments you’re entitled to under the auto No-Fault insurance law. Additionally, they may be able to help with claims to repair vehicle damage caused by the motor vehicle crash. The right attorney can help you win compensation and protect your legal rights, so you can focus on your medical recovery and getting back to fully living your life.
How long does a settlement take?
Each case is unique, so it’s a difficult question to answer but in general there are several factors that can help answer how long a settlement will take. These include: your injuries, prognosis and current future medical needs; whether you are partially or fully disabled from working; whether your injuries have resulted in an impairment that affects your ability to lead your normal life; whether your injuries will necessitate “excess” coverage for medical bills and lost wages; the experience, track record and reputation of your attorney (attorneys known for going to trial can settle cases for money and often much faster); the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company, adjuster, defense attorney and liability limits.
