Detroit Motorcycle Accident

How long do I have to file a motorcycle crash claim in Detroit, Michigan?

In Michigan, you have up to three years to file your personal injury claim. Failure to file within this mandated time frame means that you no longer have the right to obtain damages from your motorcycle crash.

Will I have to go to court to win compensation?

Most motorcycle wreck cases can be handled outside of the courtroom. The process is generally faster and insurance companies will often settle a case to avoid going to court. It’s very rare that a case must be taken to court, but it does happen on occasion. Your lawyer will fully prepare you for court should that ever happen.

How can I hire a lawyer if I don’t have the money to pay one?

When you work with Christensen Law, you won’t have to worry about coming up with upfront costs. Your attorney will front any costs associated with your case. The money that pays for your attorney comes out of the settlement. This is known as a contingency fee arrangement. Your lawyer doesn’t get paid unless they win your case.

What is the motorcycle injury claim process like?

The motorcycle crash claim process is basically a series of steps you must take from accident to settlement check. The process goes in this order: seek medical attention, investigate your motorcycle collision, gather evidence, put together a case, communicate with insurance companies, or take your case to court.

What are economic and non-economic damages?

Economic and non-economic damages refer to the ways this accident has affected you. Economic is referring to your monetary losses, such as lost income, medical expenses, cost of physical therapy, and cost of a caregiver. Non-economic refers to losses that didn’t cost you financially, but rather cost you emotionally, physically, and mentally.
