Auto Accident Attorney Troy Michigan


In Michigan in 2013, there were 71,031 persons injured in automobile collisions. These collisions happen for many reasons: drunk-driving, texting, speeding, running red lights, distracted driving, inexperienced drivers, etc. While you may be following all of the traffic laws and paying attention to other drivers, you still may not be able to avoid a collision. If you are injured in an automobile accident, you need an attorney by your side, in your corner, advocating for you.

I've been in a car accident, what are my rights?

If you have been involved in a car accident, you may have several potential claims against the person who caused the collision as well as against your own insurance company. You may have purchased collision insurance coverage, which would cover the costs for repairing damage to your vehicle. If you have repair costs that were not covered by insurance or a deductible, you may be entitled to up to $1,000 from the at-fault driver, also known in Michigan as the mini-tort.

You may also have a claim against your own automobile insurance company if you were physically injured in an automobile accident and you incurred medical expenses and/or lost wages. The Michigan No-Fault Law provides certain benefits to an injured person without regard to fault. These benefits are called no-fault benefits. They can be thought of as a type of health and disability policy that insures you and your family, whether or not the injuries occurred in your own vehicle, someone else's vehicle, or while you were a pedestrian. If you do not have your own auto insurance, an insurance company may still be responsible for your medical expenses and wage loss. Call to speak with an attorney immediately to determine who should be paying your bills.

You may also have a potential claim against the at-fault driver for your pain and suffering. To bring a lawsuit against a negligent driver, the negligent driver must be more than 50 percent at fault in causing the accident and the injured victim must have suffered a serious impairment of body function, permanent serious disfigurement, or death. Call to speak with one of Powers Chapman's experienced lawyers to discuss your potential claims today.

Why Hire an Attorney?

  • Having an attorney levels the playing field. Insurance companies have attorneys ? you deserve representation, too. Do not assume that your insurance company will be fair to you ? they often will not.

  • Having an attorney will guarantee that you are maximizing your recovery ? no money is ever left on the table.

  • Having an attorney will make sure that you are not releasing your rights to future benefits or other options of recovery.

  • Having an attorney will give you peace of mind that you are getting what you deserve.
