A person responsible for a car accident is also responsible for the injuries and damages the accident causes, but recovering just and fair compensation can be complicated. That’s why you need Sommers Schwartz.
Vehicle crashes on U.S. highways and interstates account for more than 1,700 deaths and 840,000 injuries every year, and the costs – both human and financial – can be devastating. Victims of car accidents may be confined to a life of disability. They may be unable to work or enjoy the same hobbies as they did prior to the accident. They may be prevented from going about their everyday activities or incapable of caring for their families. Over time, that burden can reach hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars, which only emphasizes the importance of having a car accident lawyer on your side.
What Does Insurance Cover?
If you have been injured in a car accident, Michigan’s No Fault Law requires that your insurance company pay your medical expenses and compensate you for work loss and replacement services, regardless of who is responsible for the crash. These are your first-party benefits. Additionally, the at-fault driver or the owner of the vehicle involved in the accident may be responsible for your injuries and damages, including compensation for pain and suffering and emotional trauma, as well as certain economic damages not covered by your own insurance. These are generally paid by the driver’s or the owner’s insurance company, and are known as third-party benefits.
Insurance companies will often dispute and deny these claims, regardless of whether they are first-party or third-party claims. If you’ve been in an auto accident and the insurance company has not adequately compensated you for your injuries, you need a competent car accident lawyer to help you secure the full benefits to which you are entitled. You need a seasoned auto accident lawyer to take your side, go the distance for you, and be responsive to you throughout the process. You need Sommers Schwartz.
