Why Hire a Grand Rapids Car Accident Lawyer

Our Grand Rapids car accident attorneys understand West Michigan. We know the communities we serve and the resources you’ll need to effectively win your case. We continually build relationships with services and providers utilized most by our clients so we can best connect you to care and rehabilitation if needed. But more than that, we pride ourselves as leaders in Michigan’s auto no-fault system – a complex insurance program that governs nearly all motor vehicle accidents in the state of Michigan.

More than that, while many people are under the impression that since Michigan is an auto no-fault insurance, a no-fault claim is all they’re entitled to. This is often untrue. If you’ve been injured due to the negligence of an at-fault driver, you may actually be entitled to two types of claims – a claim for no-fault benefits against your own car insurance provider and a liability claim against the insurance provider of the driver who caused the accident.

Specializing in Michigan No-Fault and At-Fault Driver Claims

If you were in a car accident in Michigan regardless of fault, you’re entitled to no-fault benefits if you are an auto insurance policyholder or covered under a resident relative’s policy.

No-fault benefits pay for:

    1. Allowable expenses – whatever is reasonably necessary for the care, recovery, and rehabilitation of a person injured in an auto accident.
    2. Work loss damages – up to 3 years lost income at 85% of previous wages or a statutory maximum of $6,065 (October 1, 2021 – September 31, 2022) per 30-day period.
    3. Replacement services – $20/day for the care of the home and assistance with household-related tasks.
    4. Survivor’s loss benefits – subject to the same maximums as work loss benefits, survivor’s loss is designed to support the dependents of victims tragically killed in Michigan car accidents for up to 3 years.

In addition, in instances of collisions caused by a negligent or reckless driver other than yourself, you may be entitled to bring a negligence claim against that at-fault driver.

Liability claim (also called an at-fault driver claim) pays for:

    1. Non-economic damages (also commonly called pain and suffering damages) – must meet a threshold injury, including death, permanent disfigurement, or serious impairment of body function.
    2. Excess economic loss – income replacement above and beyond what is payable through your no-fault benefits.

Not all attorneys understand how these two types of claims factor into one another. When deciding on an attorney to represent you, keep this in mind. You want someone on your side who can help obtain the best results possible for your journey forward. Our Grand Rapids car accident attorneys understand the complex nature and interplay between both claims. We’re are dedicated to fighting for everything our clients are entitled to under the law. You can rely on our years of experience and knowledge.
