If you’ve been involved in a car accident in Macomb County, the legal, medical, and financial issues can be overwhelming. You may need extensive medical care for severe injuries, such as neck and spinal cord damage.
Michigan’s auto no-fault insurance law allows drivers to file an auto accident claim for compensation to pay for treatment for your accident injuries and emotional distress.
A personal injury attorney with direct experience in Michigan auto and personal injury law can help you file a claim and negotiate with the automobile insurance company.
The qualified and experienced attorneys at the law firm of Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., specialize in automobile accident cases and can provide the high-quality legal advice you need and seek out the maximum compensation for financial and non-economic damages.
You need to take several actions to receive the compensation you deserve following a car accident. You have a better chance of getting full compensation from your insurance company when you have a Michigan lawyer who can navigate complex insurance laws.
Drivers in Michigan must purchase three levels of auto insurance, including Personal Injury Protection (PIP), Property Protection (PPI), and Bodily Injury and Property Damage (BI/PD).
Within these three insurance levels are different policy options that may affect financial coverage for your injuries. Your personal injury lawyer can ensure you receive the no-fault benefits you are legally entitled to, such as wage loss benefits, medical benefits, attendant care, and replacement services in your claim.
Depending on your policy’s limitations and exclusions, your lawyer can determine what benefits you can receive from your auto insurance. A negligent driver may be held liable for your pain and suffering and other medical costs beyond your auto insurance coverage through a personal injury lawsuit.
Your auto insurance company may delay your claim or ask you to undergo an independent medical examination to determine whether your injuries resulted from the accident. The insurer may offer a settlement that doesn’t cover all your injuries’ current and future medical expenses.
Negotiations with your insurance provider can be complex, and you do not want to risk making a statement that could adversely impact your claim. An experienced car accident lawyer can help you deal with the auto insurance company adjusters and other responsible parties involved in the accident.
An experienced auto accident attorney can collect evidence to establish the party at fault for the accident and the connection between your injuries and the accident. Your personal injury claim and court settlement may be based on this evidence.
They can quickly compile all the evidence for your claim, including the accident report, witness statements, medical records, accident scene photos, and any surveillance videos. The lawyer can even subpoena the records of the at-fault driver’s cell phone to see if they were making phone calls at the time of the accident.
You can consult with Eileen Kroll, our senior partner and nurse attorney, to establish the extent of your injuries with your medical records and the at-fault party in the accident.
Each personal injury claim is unique, with its value dependent on the evidence your lawyer collects for your claim. The attorney can estimate the compensation you may receive for medical bills and lost wages in excess of your no-fault benefits.
Additionally, they may assess your non-economic damages by examining how your accident injuries have caused you pain and suffering.
Should negotiations with the insurer fail, your lawyer can help you file a lawsuit in court. The attorney can ensure that all required documents are filed in court.
They can provide you with competent legal advice, answer all your questions, and keep you informed of all the stages of the proceedings. Your lawyer can present all the relevant evidence so that you have the best possible chance of receiving financial compensation for your injuries.
The automobile accident attorneys at Cochran, Kroll, & Associates, P.C., can help you with the auto insurance claim filing.
