While the average number of car accidents every year in the U.S. is 6 million, over half of those accidents result in injury.
As you can see, the risk of being in a car accident is rather high—especially in the Motor City. Because of this, our Michigan car accident lawyers are prepared and determined to fight for you, no matter how “big” or “small” your injury may be.
Before we get into the aspects of a car accident case, we want to make it known that we work on a contingency fee basis. This means that the costs and fees of an attorney handling the case is paid with a percentage of the settlement or judgment you receive from your case.
Simply put, no recovery = NO FEE.
Typical Damages In Car Accident Cases
It’s important to understand the damages—both monetary and non-monetary—that may be available for compensation after a car accident.
Our attorneys will fight to get you compensated for losses, including:
- Medical expenses such as hospital bills, rehabilitation, and physical therapy
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages or income
- Mental anguish
- Fright and shock
- Attendant care and household services
- Decreased earning capacity
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Embarrassment, humiliation, or mortification
- Lifestyle modifications like changes to a person’s home or vehicle
- Scars and disfigurements
Navigating Michigan’s Complicated No-Fault Law
After an accident, your sole job should be to heal. During this time, our job is to guide you through many different legal battles, including navigating Michigan’s No-Fault Law.
Most people believe that the term “no-fault” indicates that no one can sue for automobile accident cases.
However, this is not the case; No-Fault is a complex law that can either be a great tool in aiding in the recovery of the injured, or a frustrating experience at the hands of the insurance companies who control it.
Luckily, our team of car accident lawyers are experts in this subject. We won’t let insurance companies bully you in the aftermath of a car accident—we’ll be your bulldog, loyal, trusting, and ready to fight as necessary.
What Types of Injuries Can Affect My Claim?
Once it’s been determined which party was at fault, it’s time to assess your claim and get you what you deserve. However, before accepting a settlement offer, we’ll help you figure out how much compensation will cover your losses.
The severity of the injuries will be a major factor in this process. For instance, an injury to the brain or spine can have a profound impact on your life—mentally, physically, and financially. This type of injury can leave you unable to work, interact with family and friends, or do your everyday activities.
A less severe injury, like a broken bone, perhaps, will have an impact on your physical wellbeing, but will likely heal in time, allowing you to get back to living your life.
In a nutshell: The more severe and permanent the injury, the higher the settlement.
