We want you to understand your options after a Detroit car accident, and we are happy to explore them with you.
Detroit Car Accident
Can I sue for personal injury in a no-fault state?
Because Michigan is a no-fault state, your personal insurance will cover your property damage and the initial medical costs of the injuries you sustained, regardless of who was at fault for the crash. However, if your injuries are severe, you may be able to pursue additional compensation.
Your Detroit injury attorney can evaluate your case to determine whether you qualify.
Will I have to go to court?
Not always. If the insurance companies offer you fair compensation, it’s possible to handle all negotiations outside of the courtroom. Sometimes, though, your insurance company (or the negligent driver’s insurer) will fight hard to deny you a fair settlement.
That’s when you want an experienced attorney with you to fight on your behalf in court.
What can an attorney do for me?
Your attorney is not only your biggest asset during a legal battle, but we also help you tremendously before ever setting foot in a courtroom. We can investigate your case, gather evidence, interview witnesses, and help you collect necessary documentation.
Your Detroit car crash attorney will guide you throughout your legal journey so you never have to handle anything alone. We know what paperwork to file, and we know what to say to the insurance companies.
What can I be compensated for?
The compensation package you qualify for will depend on the severity of your injuries and the circumstances of your accident.
Some of the items you can be compensated for are pain and suffering, vehicle damage, medical bills, lost wages, physical therapy, and mental distress.
What if I have additional questions?
We hope our Detroit car accident FAQ answered some of your questions. But you are likely to have a lot more, so don’t hesitate to get them off your chest.
