Grand Rapids Auto Accident Lawyer

If you have been injured in a car accident, truck accident, or motorcycle accident in Michigan, it’s likely that you are entitled to compensation for your injuries, but you need to act fast. Your opportunity to recover compensation for things like wage losses, medical bills, and pain and suffering may be lost if you fail to take the proper steps not only to provide timely notice to the proper parties and entities, but also to adequately document your damages, to preserve important evidence relating to the crash, and to file and pursue a claim against the insurance company (if that proves necessary).

If your auto accident occurred in Michigan, you will probably have three potential sources for legal recovery:

  • A “first-party claim” for Michigan no-fault insurance benefits;
  • A “third-party claim” for pain and suffering against the negligent driver who caused the car, truck or motorcycle accident; and
  • A Michigan “mini-tort” claim for damage to your vehicle.

Could you handle your claim without the assistance of a Michigan auto accident attorney? Of course. Are you more likely to get the run-around from the insurance adjuster, more likely to miss some of the steps described above, and less likely to obtain a substantial settlement? Of course. Given the fact that I collect a fee only if you recover, why risk it?
