Involvement in a car accident is stressful whether or not you are the at-fault driver. There can be severe repercussions, both mental and physical, that last for weeks or months afterward, making it challenging to file claims independently. Hiring a personal injury attorney in Royal Oak, Michigan, for legal advice about an auto accident can ease your stress and help you avoid insurance complications.
Metro Detroit law firm, Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., has a seasoned team of personal injury lawyers who can assist with motor vehicle accident cases.
A car accident becomes a financial burden with economic consequences in almost all cases, whether it’s damage to the vehicle or medical bills to treat personal injury. Insurance companies can be slow to fulfill claims, which might leave you in a tight financial position.
Experienced car accident attorneys can help you minimize the delays and get you the maximum payout promptly.
As long as you have insurance for the car you were driving, if you are the victim of a no-fault car accident in Michigan, you are entitled to benefits covering your medical bills, lost wages, and more.
No-fault insurance is mandatory in Michigan for anyone who drives regularly. This policy means that if you become injured in a car accident, you don’t have to sue the responsible driver to cover your medical costs or vehicle damage. Instead, your own auto insurance company will pay for this, regardless of whether you caused the accident.
Michigan no-fault law permits you to file a claim under your insurance policy to seek reimbursement from the responsible third party’s insurance, though you might not want to do this if the accident wasn’t your fault. Filing any claim through insurance can impact your rates.
