No matter how safe a driver you may be, the road can be a dangerous place. Every day, you must deal with other motorists who engage in countless unsafe driving practices, including texting while driving and drunk driving. Sadly, these types of careless behaviors can easily lead to a serious–and possibly deadly―car crash.
However, you may be entitled to compensation and damages if you are injured in a Michigan car accident, including benefits provided under the state’s no-fault laws.
At Hakim, Toma & Yaldoo, P.C., our experienced attorneys are dedicated to helping you get back on your feet following a serious auto collision. We will never settle your lawsuit just to make a quick buck. We will always do what is best for you because helping you maximize your financial recovery is our main goal.
What Benefits Or Damages Can I Seek?
Car accidents can result in many significant injuries, especially if you are involved in a serious rear-end collision or T-bone accident. In some cases, these injuries can lead to a lifetime of physical hardship and years of medical treatment.
Thankfully in, many forms of damages are covered under your own no-fault insurance policy, including lifetime medical benefits and 85% of lost wages. You can collect these benefits regardless of who is at fault for the accident.
However, if another driver is actually at fault for your collision, you may also be able to file a claim for noneconomic damages against this driver, including damages for pain and suffering, emotional distress, and scarring or disfigurement. You may also be able to seek some economic damages not otherwise covered under no-fault benefits, such as excess wage loss. If the at-fault driver does not have sufficient insurance to cover your damages, you may be able to collect additional compensation under your own uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage as well.
The law surrounding auto injury claims is quite complex in Michigan, which is why it is always best to seek the legal guidance of an experienced lawyer.
