• What damages can I collect after a car accident in Michigan?

Car crashes are traumatic. Victims may suffer bodily injuries, property damage, emotional harm, and significant financial hardship. Given how dramatically the consequences affect lives, car crash victims are entitled to financial compensation. 

Depending on the circumstances, a  driver may receive the following damages after an accident: 

  1. Economic: covers quantifiable costs like medical expenses and time out of work. 
  2. Non-Economic: covers less tangible injuries like mental distress and emotional suffering.

Unfortunately, limitless funds are rarely available after an accident. The plaintiff’s policy limits and the defendant’s insurance generally place a ceiling on the victim’s reward. In some cases, a jury may award damages over the policy limits. The defendant is responsible for paying this balance out of pocket, but many at-fault drivers cannot satisfy the debt financially.
