Why Do I Need A Michigan Rear End Car Accident Lawyer?
If you were injured after being hit from behind, you will need a Michigan rear end car accident lawyer to help you. An experienced personal injury attorney from our firm can and will help you protect your legal rights to recover compensation for your pain and suffering as well excess medical expenses, excess lost wages and other economic damages. Michigan’s law as it applies to being hit from behind is complex and can present many traps for the unwary. That is why having a skilled and experienced attorney from our law firm is so important.
It is very common that these types of crashes result from at-fault drivers’ failure to comply with the “basic speed law” which provides that drivers must drive “at a careful and prudent speed” that “will permit a stop within the assured, clear distance ahead.” (MCL 257.627(1))
And Michigan law provides that a driver who hits someone from behind “shall be deemed prima facie guilty of negligence.” (MCL 257.402)
Knowing how Michigan law can hold an at-fault driver accountable for the injuries that he or she causes in a crash is why it is so important to call and have a free consultation with an experienced attorney from our firm immediately after you were injured after being hit from behind.
What you need in a Michigan rear end car accident lawyer is an attorney who continues to break records for the top settlements for crashes in the state. That is what you will get with an attorney from our law firm.
We have recovered the top jury verdict in multiple counties for an auto crash injury and truck crash injury cases. Here are just a few examples of our recent settlements:
- $34.5 Million – Attorney Steven Gursten secured the largest-reported car/truck settlement in the U.S. This is the largest ever car/truck injury settlement by an attorney in Michigan.
- $13.5 Million – Attorneys settled a case for a victim in a car/truck crash who suffered major burn injuries.
- $9 Million – Attorney Steven Gursten obtained this recovery for a man who lost both of his legs in a rear-end car/truck collision. This was the largest Michigan pain and suffering only settlement in the state of the preceding decade. $7 Million – The parents of a young man who was killed by a speeding driver sued for his pain and suffering before he passed. This was the top reported settlement in the state that year. Notably, our attorneys were also able to recover an additional $4 million dollars in contribution over the insurance policy limits for the family.
- $6.2 million – Details about parties, injuries and insurers are confidential for this settlement.
- $5.65 Million – A jury awarded this amount to our client who had suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of being run over in a crash. This was the largest reported crash verdict in Macomb County and in the state for the year.
- $5.1 Million – This wrongful death settlement in a rear-end collision case was the largest reported wrongful death settlement in Washtenaw County and the largest reported motor vehicle wrongful death settlement in the state for an individual killed in a crash in 2018.
- $520,000 – Our attorneys successfully obtained the largest pain and suffering only verdict ever in Ottawa County in 2018 and the largest reported crash verdict on the west side of the state in 2018.

Michigan Rear End Car Accident Lawyer FAQs
What else do you need to know if you are considering hiring a Michigan rear end car accident lawyer? If you were injured after being hit from behind, you may be entitled to important No-Fault benefits, pain and suffering compensation and other economic damages.
But it is important to remember that you are more likely to recover the full value of your claim if you hire the right legal team to protect you and to protect your legal rights. Read our attorney FAQs below or call to speak to an experienced attorney from our law firm for free with no obligation now.
Yes. You need a Michigan rear end car accident lawyer who has the specialized experience, skill, resources and proven results to fight for you to recover the compensation, benefits and damages you are entitled to under the law. He or she will help you understand how much your case is worth and he or she will know how to maximize your settlement by negotiating with the insurance companies to get the full value of your case.
Insurance companies evaluate claims and determine whether to settle – and if so for how much – based on risk and exposure. An experienced attorney with a track record of proven results, including top reported settlements and verdicts, significantly increases both the risk and the exposure to the insurance company that insures the negligent driver who caused your injury.
Another way to look at this is that an attorney who has a proven record of going to trial and of securing top-reported verdicts and settlements can settle cases for significantly more money and often much faster.
We know that one of your first questions after you were injured from being hit from behind is: How much does a Michigan rear end car accident lawyer cost me? You are not alone in wondering. Many people imagine that hiring an attorney is expensive. Not so! At Michigan Auto Law, we will never ask you to pay any 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. This is called a contingency fee, which means we only get paid if you get paid – which means we win your case first. And you always get our 100% client satisfaction guarantee.
Yes. But don’t take our word for it. The insurance industry’s own data shows that a person who is represented by an experienced attorney recovers significantly more than a person who is not. In fact, attorneys who are known for going to trial – which our attorneys are known for – can settle cases for significantly more money and often much faster. Also, at Michigan Auto Law, you do not pay unless we win. A Michigan rear end car accident lawyer from our law firm will handle all aspects of your case so you can focus on recovering from your injuries and on rebuilding your life. 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 are here for you.
You can change your attorney at any time and for any reason. If your attorney is not representing you in the way you expect, then you can and should make a change. Our Proven Lawyer Transition Plan makes it easy and quick to get an experienced attorney from our firm who will be there and fight for you. It starts with a free consultation with a Michigan rear end car accident lawyer from our law firm. Next, you sign up to have Michigan Auto Law represent you. Then, that same day, we order your file from your previous attorney and we immediately get to work putting your case back on track so that you recover the compensation, benefits and damages that you are entitled to under the law.
Each case is unique, so it is a difficult question to answer but in general there are several factors that can help answer how long a settlement will take. These include: (1) your injuries, prognosis and current future medical needs; (2) whether you are partially or fully disabled from working; (3) whether your injuries have resulted in an impairment that affects your ability to lead your normal life; (4) whether your injuries will necessitate “excess” coverage for medical bills and lost wages; (5) the experience, track record and reputation of your hit and run attorney (because attorneys known for going to trial can settle cases for money and often much faster); and (6) the auto insurance company that issued the at-fault driver’s liability policy, the adjuster, the defense attorney and the limits of the at-fault driver’s liability policy.
