Do I Need A Pedestrian Accident Lawyer In Michigan?
If you are injured in a pedestrian accident in Michigan you are not required to hire a lawyer but it is in your best interest. An experienced attorney can protect your legal rights to get your medical bills paid for and to be reimbursed for lost wages under our state’s auto No-Fault insurance law. Our state’s auto No-Fault insurance law is complex and can present many traps for the unwary. That’s why having a skilled and experienced attorney from our law firm is so important.
Take for example giving “notice” to the insurance company after an injury. If you do not file your “written notice of injury” with the proper auto insurance company and if you do not do so on time, then you may end up forfeiting all of your No-Fault PIP benefits forever under our strict one-year statute of limitations. The same holds true for expensive medical bills and lost wages: If your claim for payment is not submitted within one year of the date that they were incurred, then your claim will not be paid by the auto insurance company. Also, if you were walking and injured by a hit-and-run driver or an uninsured driver, then there may be “notice” requirements in your own “uninsured motorist” policy. Failure to comply could result in your being denied and/or disqualified from “uninsured motorist” coverage and, thus, losing 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 the claims adjuster from the auto insurance company that is handling your claim for No-Fault benefits. Did you know that the Supreme Court in this state has ruled that your own claims adjuster does not have to advise you of the benefits that you are legally entitled to? They can also ask you to sign a release right after your crash. This is something you should never do without having talked with your attorney first. Sadly, this tactic lately includes auto insurance companies and claims adjusters who try to trick victims who are already under financial pressure into “settling” their injury claims for much less than they are worth and forfeiting all of their future legal rights to No-Fault benefits and pain and suffering compensation.
An experienced attorney from our firm can and will help and protect you if you were walking and injured by the negligence of an at-fault driver of a car or truck. We will make sure you receive all of the No-Fault benefits you are entitled to from the auto insurance company and all of the pain and suffering compensation you are entitled to from the insurance company of the negligent driver who caused your injuries.
That is why it is so important to call and have a free consultation with an experienced Michigan pedestrian accident lawyer from our law firm immediately if you were walking and hit by a car or truck and injured.

How much does a pedestrian accident lawyer cost in Michigan?
In Michigan, a pedestrian 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 attorneys will charge in the state. An attorney cannot charge a contingency fee in excess of 1/3 or 33%.
At our law firm, 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.
Is it worth getting a lawyer for a pedestrian accident in Michigan?
In Michigan, if you are injured in a pedestrian accident, 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 our law firm, you do not pay unless we win. An attorney from our law firm 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 are here for you.
Can I change my pedestrian accident lawyer in Michigan?
In Michigan, you can change your pedestrian accident lawyer 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 an attorney from our law firm. Next, you sign up to have a Michigan pedestrian accident lawyer from our law firm 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 receive the No-Fault benefits, pain and suffering compensation and other economic damages that you are entitled to under the law.
How long does a settlement take?
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 it will take an attorney to obtain a settlement in your case. These factors include: your injuries, prognosis; current and 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 lawyer (attorneys known for going to trial can settle cases for more money and often much faster); the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company, adjuster, defense lawyer and liability limits.
