Michigan is a no-fault state. This means that pedestrians injured in an accident involving a motor vehicle, even a hit-and-run-accident, may be able to collect no-fault insurance benefits. No-fault insurance benefits can include payment of medical bill expenses, lost wages, attendant care services (nursing services), and more.
It is important that the Detroit pedestrian accident attorney you choose to represent you in your Michigan pedestrian accident lawsuit has a complete understanding and thorough knowledge of Michigan’s no-fault laws. Without that knowledge, you may only be able to collect compensation for your pain and suffering and not obtain the no-fault insurance benefits you are also entitled to from the insurance company.
Because Michigan has a strict statute of limitations for filing this type of claim, it is important that you do not wait to consult with our skilled legal team. Waiting too long to file a lawsuit could mean that your case could be barred forever and you will not be able to collect compensation for your injuries.
Our attorneys will handle your case from the initial investigation, gathering all evidence including contact information of witnesses and insurance information of the driver involved. We will represent you on a contingency fee basis, which means there are no legal fees to you whatsoever unless you receive a settlement or recovery.
Barry Goodman is a fighter. He exceeded our expectations. He was very funny as well, which was calming. I had a very positive experience with Goodman Acker. The entire staff was professional and kind. I highly recommend them.
