This compensation usually includes money for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering. Additional punitive damages are available as well, in some extreme cases.

Only take on an insurance company with others. Instead, let the Allen Park personal injury lawyers fight for you so you get the compensation you need and deserve.

Personal Injury Claims versus Insurance Claims

“Personal injury” is a legal term that can be defined as a case that involves harm to the body and/or emotional wellness of a person due to another person or entity’s wrongdoing. At least one plaintiff pursues a case to recover damages from at least one defendant.

Through litigation, interested parties work to discover who is responsible for the injuries, calculate the extent of the damages, and compensate the victim for those damages.

Insurance claims, on the other hand, do not involve the courts. When a person is injured, they file a claim with an insurance company, either their own or the insurer representing the negligent party.

Depending on the type of accident, a claim may be filed against an auto insurance policy, a homeowner’s or property owner’s policy, a renter’s policy, or a professional liability policy.

Typically, an insurance claim is filed first. A personal injury lawsuit can be filed if a fair settlement is not reached. One of our skilled personal injury attorneys in Allen Park will make sure a strategic, well-supported personal injury claim secures your rights and interests.

Compensation for Personal Injuries in Michigan

In Michigan, the law allows injured parties to seek compensation for their damages. “Damages” in a personal injury case include the financial expenses and non-economic harm that results from an injury.

Most damages that result from a personal injury incident are medical expenses and property damage. When an injury is expected to last for an extended period or contribute to long-term expenses, litigation attempts to project the total costs of the incident.

Of course, other costs can result from an injury that is neither medical nor property related. Pain and suffering and emotional distress are non-economic damages that a personal injury claim can recover.

In rare cases, punitive damages (also known as exemplary damages) may be recovered if the liable party acted with malice or willful disregard for the victim’s rights.

In general, a person injured by another person’s negligence may be able to recover any or all of the following:

  • Medical bills (including surgery, medication, rehabilitation, therapy, etc.)
  • Property damages
  • Transportation costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering.

Allen Park Personal Injury FAQs

Our Personal Injury Lawyers in Wayne County Answer Common Questions

Personal injury claims can leave people frustrated and confused. The process itself can be overwhelming. Here, we try to answer some of the most common daily questions.

How long do you have to file a personal injury claim in Allen Park?

In Michigan, the statute of limitations for personal injuries and wrongful death, M.C.L.A. § 600.5805, allows you three years from the date of an incident to file a personal injury claim. Limited exceptions allow for additional time, like cases where:

  • the victim is considered insane at the time of the accident;
  • the victim was under the age of 18 at the time of the accident; or
  • the liable party/defendant is out of state and cannot be reasonably served with a lawsuit.

For medical malpractice cases, however, M.C.L.A. § 600.5805(8) sets a two-year limit. Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys in Wayne County will help ensure you timely file a strong claim.

How does Michigan’s no-fault law impact my personal injury claim?

In July 2020, the State of Michigan put into place a new auto insurance policy, also known as Michigan’s no-fault law. It affects personal injury claims involving car accidents, bus accidents, or truck accidents. The no-fault law states that all drivers are now required to purchase and carry basic insurance coverage that would pay for expenses resulting from an accident.

Because this law is so new, it is important to have an attorney to represent your interests and advocate for your rights. Even if you are dealing with your auto insurance company, their priority is profits rather than fair compensation.

For what types of accidents can I file a personal injury claim?

Though Michigan now limits personal injury lawsuits to motor vehicle cases, you can still sue when necessary and in accordance with the law. You are still permitted to sue for full and fair compensation for injuries sustained in other types of accidents in Wayne County, such as but not limited to the following:

  • Medical malpractice
  • Premises liability
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Wrongful death
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Birth injuries
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Dog bite accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Nursing home incidents/accidents
  • Product liability.

How do I know I have an Allen Park personal injury claim?

That is what we at Goodman Acker are here for. We will help you understand, at no cost to you, whether you have a personal injury claim. In brief, however, you may have a personal injury claim if:

  1. A duty was owed to you;
  2. That duty was breached;
  3. The breach caused you to suffer a bodily injury; and
  4. The injury can be monetarily quantified (meaning you had to spend money on a medical evaluation or treatment.)

How much is my personal injury claim worth?

The damages you can seek in a personal injury claim in Allen Park are fully dependent on the damages you suffered, considering all the facts and circumstances. We will review your case at the initial free consultation and clarify expectations.

The real worth of any given personal injury claim, however, can only be realized after a full investigation into the accident or incident.

Our highly skilled staff members and personal injury lawyers in Wayne County have the resources to conduct a thorough investigation. We will uncover all the facts so that the real worth of your claim is revealed, and you receive what you deserve.

If you have additional questions, please contact our Allen Park personal injury lawyers today at 248-286-8100.
