If you've been injured in a car accident, you know that the physical, emotional, and financial toll can be overwhelming. But you don't have to face these problems alone. A Detroit car accident lawyer with the personal injury law firm of Pazner Law can fight for the compensation you deserve after a car accident. Our experienced accident lawyers can provide you with legal advice about your insurance coverage and guide you through the process of filing a claim with your insurance company.
We can also help you file a car accident settlement against the at-fault driver for excessive medical bills and lost wages. Michigan is a No-Fault State, so you must file an injury compensation claim with your insurance company. The facts of your personal injury claim and the extent of your damages determine if you are eligible for no-fault PIP benefits. These benefits include allowable expense benefits, survivor benefits, loss of work benefits, and loss of wages benefits. People with Medicare or a qualified health insurance plan can be excluded from PIP benefits. Opting out of PIP benefits can save you 100% of your money.
However, the no-fault system has its downsides, such as higher insurance premiums for Michigan drivers. If you have incurred expenses beyond the limits of your insurance policy for medical bills and are unable to work, you may have to file a lawsuit for damages. To file legal compensation claims, seek representation from Cochran personal injury law firm, Kroll & Associates, P. C. Our car accident lawyers have extensive experience in litigating and winning cases for our clients, so they get the compensation they deserve for their car accident injuries.
Dealing with insurance companies and the at-fault party can be complex. You can meet with one of our experienced car accident lawyers in a no-obligation initial consultation and find out what you can do to get a fair settlement for your injuries. If necessary, we can file a lawsuit against the negligent driver for financial compensation beyond your medical expenses and lost wages. If there are videos or images of the scene of the accident, your lawyer can examine them to determine the extent of the damage and collect additional evidence to identify the at-fault party, including witness testimony and surveillance footage. Your lawyer can also review the police report to get a clearer picture of your accident. All of this information provides evidence to support your insurance claim and negotiate a car accident settlement.
If you suffer serious injuries, you may have reason to seek compensation for pain and suffering. To be granted restitution for pain and suffering, you need extensive medical records detailing your injuries and the treatment to present your case. Having a legal team to back you up is essential to estimating the damages owed to you because of your financial and emotional difficulties.
