Injury Crashes in Detroit

Detroit, MI - Two-Car Crash, Injuries at Common & Utica RdsIn recent years, the incidence of serious car accidents has increased throughout the country, including here in Michigan. The number of traffic incidents that result in injuries continues to rise every year despite efforts to reduce risky driving behaviors, including speeding, irresponsibility, and driver inattention.

However, if the motorist was reckless or negligent, you may seek legal action to recover damages for your injuries and other losses. In addition to their continued physical anguish, victims of traffic accidents also face significant financial difficulties. Even in low-velocity or seemingly small collisions, serious injuries such as brain injuries, burns, spinal cord injuries, bone fractures, internal bleeding, and so on are not unheard of. Those who have been harmed or lost a loved one through no fault of their own may have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and bewilderment.

Recovering damages after a car accident that was obviously the other driver’s responsibility may be stressful enough as it is without having to deal with the complexities of Michigan’s personal injury statute. When victims attempt to negotiate with insurance companies on their own, adjusters will use any and all means at their disposal to keep them from paying the full and fair compensation to which they are due.

After an accident, your prospects of receiving just compensation improve if you retain the services of an experienced attorney. If you find a lawyer who works on a contingency fee basis, you won’t have to worry about paying anything up in advance. In other words, you won’t have to worry about paying your lawyer until either your case is resolved or you win in court. As a consequence, you won’t have to worry about paying your lawyer (often 30–40% of your total settlement or judgment) until you get money.
