The loss of my mother-in-law was devastating for the family. We chose Michigan Auto Law to handle her wrongful death case because the firm exclusively handles Michigan auto accident cases, and they have more accolades and successful cases than any of the competing firms. Even better, our lawyers Larry Gursten and Steve Gursten were very compassionate throughout the entire case. Some lawyers we interviewed told us that the loss of an 87 year old wasn’t worth much, but Larry and Steve got us almost every penny there was from the trucking company’s insurance carrier.

What is a wrongful death lawyer in Michigan?
In Michigan, a wrongful death lawyer is an attorney who has specialized experience in helping people and families who have lost loved ones in a car accident. This specialized attorney has the skill, resources and proven results to fight for you and your family to recover compensation for your loved one’s pain and suffering as well as damages for loss of your loved one’s financial support, society and companionship. 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 loved one’s 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.
Is getting a lawyer for a wrongful death worth it in Michigan?
If you lost a loved one in a car accident in Michigan, it is worth getting a lawyer for a car accident because the insurance industry has conducted their own research showing that people who are represented by experienced car accident attorneys recover more than people who are not represented by attorneys.

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.
