Do I Need A Lawyer After A Car Accident in Michigan?

Involvement in a Michigan car accident can be a frightening experience. For many, the question of whether or not they need a lawyer for their personal injury claim arises. The truth is not every case requires the assistance of an attorney, however if your car accident resulted in serious injuries hiring a lawyer is the smartest decision you can make for your case.

Serious injuries could include:

  • Head Injuries
  • Spine Injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Neck Injuries
  • Fractured bones and broken bones
  • Amputations
  • Injuries causing disability from work and other daily activities
  • Injuries requiring surgery or possible long term medical treatment

Other than sustaining serious injuries, other reasons why you may need a lawyer after a Michigan car accident include:

  • The other driver involved in the accident was uninsured or underinsured
  • You are feeling pressured by the insurance adjuster to agree to a quick settlement. *Warning: Victims should be aware that anything said to the insurance adjuster may be held against them and could hurt the possibility of receiving full compensation for their injuries. If you are considering hiring an attorney, do not speak to the adjuster and have your attorney deal with the insurance company.
  • Your insurance company is denying or delaying payment of yourMichigan no-fault insurance benefits
