Your Fight Is Our Fight
You May Get Damages for Your Lost Wages in Michigan
Many injuries require you to take significant time off at work to recover. A personal injury attorney can track the wages you lost to help you seek compensation to cover these damages.
You may also have a chance to secure compensation for lost bonuses or raises that you missed due to your injuries.
Furthermore, some injuries result in disabling conditions that prevent you from returning to work at all. Your attorney may seek funds to cover your lost earning potential in this situation. We’ll discuss all these options when you contact us for help.
Personal Injury Compensation May Cover Your Pain and Suffering
Thus far, we’ve discussed the economic compensation you can receive after an accident in Michigan. These losses have direct dollar values that lawyers can track and calculate on your behalf.
However, you may also qualify for non-economic compensation after a severe accident. This form of compensation addresses things like mental anguish, emotional suffering, and pain after an accident.
We understand how to file a claim for this type of compensation for clients like you.
We understand that you may be going through a difficult situation and we are ready to help however we can.
Can You Get Funds for Property Damage in Michigan?
We understand that some accidents may result in property damage in addition to injuries. In these situations, a lawyer may help you file a claim to cover these losses.
For example, you may seek damages to cover the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle after a car accident. We’ll review your situation to see if you qualify for property damage compensation.
You will always work directly with your attorney throughout your case.
Can You Qualify for Personal Injury Damages?
Individuals injured by another party’s negligence may qualify for personal injury compensation in Michigan. In order to bring you funds to cover your expenses, an attorney has to show that:
- Someone else owed you a duty of care
- They failed to uphold their duty
- Their actions directly caused your accident
- The accident caused you injuries and financial losses
To secure damages, your attorney may focus on negotiating with insurance agents to reach a settlement that leads to fair compensation. The negotiation process may take several months, and we generally recommend against taking the first settlement offer.
Additionally, insurance agents may refuse to make a fair offer. In this situation, your attorney may suggest filing a lawsuit in Michigan. We can represent you in front of a judge and jury, striving to secure a verdict in your favor.
How Much Compensation Do You Get Through a Personal Injury Claim?
The compensation available to cover your personal injury damages in Michigan can vary. In many cases, the funds you receive depend upon the extent of your losses and the severity of your injuries.
Your lawyer can track all the costs of your accident, gathering documentation supporting your claim. We use these forms of evidence to strengthen your claim, working aggressively to help you increase your personal injury damages.
Remember that once you sign a settlement agreement, you lose your chance to get additional damages. Therefore, we recommend allowing a lawyer to review these papers before making any final decisions.
