The Steps to Filing a Personal Auto Injury Claim in Michigan

Dealing with the aftermath of an injury is undeniably tough. The pain, medical bills, and work disruptions can be overwhelming. You might be considering a lawsuit to secure the financial support you need during your recovery. Our Detroit-based injury firm has outlined the steps for filing a personal injury lawsuit in Michigan to guide you through this process.

1.      Investigate the Cause of Your Accident:

Identifying the cause of your accident is paramount. Gathering evidence to demonstrate another party’s negligence is crucial. While this can be challenging alone, we can help you collect vital evidence such as police reports, witness testimonies, video footage such as police body and dash cams and 9-1-1 recordings.

2.      Document Your Physical Injuries:

Thoroughly documenting your injuries and establishing their link to the accident is essential. We collaborate with your doctor to compile comprehensive records and ask that you document your journey with photos at every phase of your rehabilitation and recovery.

3.      Negotiate with the Other Side:

Before pursuing a lawsuit, we may advise filing a claim with relevant insurance companies. Negotiating a fair settlement can be complex, but at Abrahams Law we will work to secure the best possible outcome for you.

4.      File a Lawsuit or Settle:

If the insurance settlement meets your needs, including future expenses, you can accept it and receive compensation. If you believe the offer is unfair or your claim is denied, you may need to initiate a personal injury lawsuit and proceed to court for just compensation.

5.      Attend Court and Prove Your Case:

Filing the necessary paperwork will lead to court hearings, where we will present evidence to establish the responsible party’s liability and the extent of your injuries. If successful, the court, or a jury, will award compensation for economic and non-economic damages.

Navigating these steps with the assistance of a skilled attorney can significantly improve your chances of obtaining the compensation you rightfully deserve.
