When a car accident occurs, the repercussions are not just financial but also physical and mental. To aid your recovery from crash injuries, you’ll want to consider hiring a personal injury lawyer. They can ease your mental and emotional load by assisting you with filing claims and keeping in touch with your insurance company.
Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., is a reputable personal injury law firm serving Novi, MI, and handles various personal injury cases, including truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and car accidents.
In Michigan, all people who drive regularly must have no-fault insurance. It will cover the cost of your medical bills and other economic damages if you are in an accident, regardless of whether or not you are at-fault. These personal injury protection benefits provide unlimited lifetime medical benefits to treat injuries resulting from a car crash.
As of July 2020, changes to Michigan auto law mean drivers can choose from six different protection plans. This is an attempt to lower the cost of auto insurance in Michigan. The rates for the state were some of the highest in the world. Unfortunately, it also limits the benefits that some drivers will now receive if they are accident victims.
Drivers can now choose to have less than unlimited coverage, which means that there will be a maximum amount that insurance will cover for medical treatment if they become injured. Each individual must weigh the cost against the risks and factor in their financial situation. If you aren’t able to cover expensive hospital bills, paying for the additional insurance coverage might be something to consider, on the off chance you are involved in a vehicle collision.
An accident victim can also sue the responsible driver for excess damages not covered by their auto insurance. An experienced car accident attorney at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., can help protect your interests and reduce your workload while you recover.
While some damages can be measured in monetary units, others cannot. These are called non-economic damages and include:
These cannot be specifically priced and paid to reimburse the victim. Instead, they are subjective and how much a victim receives varies by case. A seasoned accident attorney can help you pursue non-economic damages by collecting the necessary documents as evidence to support your claim.
