Insurance-ClaimCar accidents that are caused by the negligent, reckless or intentional wrongdoing of another could end in damages, injury or even death. Individuals who suffer losses due to an accident are able to take legal action against those responsible for the accident which resulted in their losses.

Common losses people experience from a car accident, caused by someone else’s wrongdoing, include physical and mental injuries, damaged property, the wrongful death of a loved one and other losses to which they may be compensated for.

Car accident victims may be left with many financial damages, such as expensive repairs to their vehicle, the costs to replace their vehicle, lost wages due to missing days at work, loss of earning capacity due to not being able to ever work again, medical bills and other financial losses they suffer as a result of a car accident. These financial damages are not their fault and should not be their responsibility. Car accident victims may, also, be left with injuries, minor or severe, that can have a serious impact on their lives and their future. They should not have to manage their lives on their own with an injury caused by someone else’s wrongdoing.

People who are involved in car accidents, which were the fault of someone else, may be able to recover financial compensation for the losses they sustained at the hands of a wrongdoer.

If you or a family member has been involved in a car accident, you should immediately call emergency services, including the police and medical assistance. It is important to get medical attention as soon as possible to minimize the effects of your injuries, but the police will document your accident and all information relevant to the accident scene. Your injuries will be attended to and there will be a medical record of the injuries you sustained due to the accident.

If you are not immediately taken to the hospital, go to your doctor. Inform your physician you have been involved in an auto accident. Ask for a complete physical examination, some injuries may not apparent immediately; also, ask for an MRI if you are experiencing any type of head pain. Make sure to gather all your medical records and medical bills. After seeking medical attention, contact your insurance company to inform them of the car accident.

Once you have taken these steps, contact a car accident attorney who will help you and your family recover losses you suffered as a result of your accident in Michigan.  Do not speak with the responsible driver, their insurance company or accept any type of settlement agreement before seeking the advice of an experienced attorney to ensure your rights are protected and that you recover fair and just compensation for your losses.
