Lennox Emanuel, I understand that being involved in a car accident can be a traumatic experience, possibly leading to serious injuries, mounting medical bills, extensive damage to your vehicle, and even the inability to work or enjoy time with your family. Car accident claims can be complex and involve numerous parties, from the other driver to insurance agents to defense attorneys. If you have been seriously injured in a car accident caused by another driver or person, as your personal Michigan car accident lawyer, I can help protect your rights and seek the compensation you need and deserve.
A person can recover damages for their vehicle, medical expenses, and economic loss including missed time from work or missed business opportunities. They can also recover non-economic damages, which are pain and suffering damages. If they are hit by a drunk driver, they may be entitled to further damages.
The drivers involved in a car accident are most typically responsible for the damages caused, with the at-fault party and their insurer owing compensation to the other party. The at-fault party is likely the person who caused the accident. When a motorist has acted especially negligently or recklessly and has broken the law, he or she may also be held personally responsible.
If your accident involved an uninsured or underinsured driver, your own insurer may have a duty to cover your costs, depending on the terms of your policy. As your preferred auto accident lawyer in Michigan, I can negotiate with both your own insurer and that of the other party.
If an accident involves a commercial driver or large truck, the parent company may bear liability, in addition to the insurer and the driver himself.
While there are limits to when a government body may be sued, your Michigan car accident attorney can analyze the circumstances that led to your injuries and determine which parties may be liable and how to proceed.
