Finding the Best Car Accident Lawyer in Michigan


Personal Injury Results






There are many car accident lawyers to choose from to represent you in your Michigan car accident claim. In fact, finding a lawyer is not a hard task. What is difficult is finding the best lawyer to best represent you. Choosing the wrong attorney can often mean the difference between receiving the maximum settlement for your car accident injuries versus not receiving a settlement at all.

So how do you make the right choice? Some suggestions for selecting the right lawyer to help you after an auto accident include:

  1. Ensuring the lawyer you hire has significant experience in handling car accident claims in Michigan. This includes a track record of representing clients in situations such as yours and helping them obtain the maximum settlement for their injuries. Questions such as, “How long they have been in practice?” and “What percentage of the lawyer’s practice involves auto injury cases?” would be good questions to ask.

  2. Ensuring the attorney has experience in the trial room. A well-experienced and knowledgeable attorney should not be afraid of the trial room and should in fact have some experience of taking cases to trial and winning.

  3. Ensuring the lawyer has an in-depth understanding of Michigan law and no-fault insurance benefits. Michigan is a no-fault state, therefore auto accident victims are entitled to receive certain benefits under the law regardless of being at fault or not. The attorney you hire should be well-versed in no-fault law, understand how to file and submit your claims, and have significant experience dealing with insurance companies.

  4. Finding out if the lawyer would personally be handling your case and that you are guaranteed first-hand attention to your case.

  5. Finding out what the attorney fees are and if they practice on a contingency fee basis, which means no legal fees or costs until you win.

As an additional resource, Senior Partner and Attorney of our Southfield personal injury law firm, Jerry Acker, answers this question in the video below. He explains why choosing the Michigan car accident lawyers at Goodman Acker P.C. over any other attorney in the Detroit Metropolitan area to represent you in your car accident claim or any other type of personal injury accident matter is the best decision you can make.

He discusses his years of experience in the representation of injury victims as well as how all the knowledge and skill the firm has assessed goes to work for you.

“Because I work for you. All of the knowledge and skill I have accumulated over my 31 years, all of the knowledge and experience I have with insurance companies and judges around this town, all the knowledge I have accumulated as the past president of the Michigan Trial Lawyers Association doesn’t go to work for me. It goes to work for you. It’s the knowledge, skill, and connections that we have to be able to make sure that when you come to our office everything that we have, everything that is at our disposal, goes to work for you to make sure in the end you get the justice and compensation you deserve,” says Acker.
