Automobile Accidents

You deserve an auto accident attorney who understands how to get the best results for your case. 

Michigan is one of the few “no-fault states” for car accidents. In most cases, this means your insurance will pay for medical bills, property damage, and other losses up to a point, regardless of who was at fault for the crash. 

Most out-of-state lawyers are not licensed to practice in Michigan, so they often are unaware of Michigan’s unique no-fault law. 

That lack of knowledge can negatively impact your rights and  you could lose out on some benefits or entire legal claims. Knowledge, experience, and compassion matter. 

The Reality of Automobile Accidents in Michigan

Every year, hundreds of people are involved in auto accidents on Michigan highways and roads. Common reasons for these accidents include: 

What Does No-Fault Mean?

You’ve probably heard that the State of Michigan is a “No-Fault” state. But what exactly does that mean?  

When an individual is in an automobile accident in Michigan, liability doesn’t determine whether or not that individual can receive help to get better. Certain benefits are included in the No-Fault law to provide aid to the injured. 

However, that doesn’t mean that a careless driver shouldn’t be held responsible for causing an accident. There are two aspects to any automobile accident: No-Fault benefits and damages for bodily injury, also known as pain and suffering awards.

In terms of benefits, Michigan’s No-Fault law aims to help individuals who have been injured in a motor vehicle accident return to a “reasonable standard of living.” 

If an individual is injured, they can receive medical care to rehabilitate their body, which includes medical transportation to get back and forth to the doctors providing those rehabilitative services.
