Attorneys Who Help With a Variety of Auto Accidents

Accidents happen on Michigan roads every day. However, many of the accidents occur due to negligence on the part of one of the drivers. There are many different users of the road and many different causes of car accidents, including:

  • Drunk driving - Drivers who operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs put themselves and others on the road at risk.
  • Distracted driving - The use of cell phones or other electronic devices while driving makes drivers take their eyes off the road and leads to a higher rate of accidents.
  • Dangerous road conditions - Unsafe roads, highways, and intersections that were not properly designed or maintained by a city, state, or county can contribute to a dangerous environment for drivers and lead to collisions.
  • Traffic violations - Speeding, reckless driving, tailgating, and making illegal lane changes can all lead to accidents.

No matter the cause of the accident, the negligent driver may be liable for your injuries and damages to your vehicle.

Steps to Take After a Car Accident

If you have been in a car accident, it is important to do the following steps to have as much information as possible to share with attorneys:

  • Check if anyone was injured and call 911 if necessary.
  • Contact the police and make an accident report. Make sure you receive a copy of the accident report from the police officer.
  • Exchange contact and insurance information with all parties involved in the accident.
  • Gather information, including taking pictures of the accident scene and surrounding environment, the condition of the road, street signs, and traffic signals if possible. Also, exchange contact information with any witnesses to the accident.

It is important to contact an attorney after an auto accident if there were injuries or other damages. The attorney can contact insurance companies, help you determine the legal action that needs to be taken, and assist in seeking compensation from those responsible.

Compensation After an Auto Accident

Michigan has a no-fault insurance law, which means that both drivers can seek coverage from their insurance companies, regardless of who is at fault. Depending on the circumstances, victims of a car accident can be eligible for additional compensation for a variety of claims. This compensation for the driver and passengers involved in the accident may address the emergency medical treatment costs, any other medical expenses resulting from the accident, lost wages while recovering from injuries, and future lost wages if a disability was sustained in the accident, plus physical and emotional pain and suffering.
