Liability in a Car Accident

Hurt in an accident? Speak with our firm right away!

Suffering a car accident can be a jarring experience, both physically and emotionally. The shock is much worse if you have sustained a serious injury in the accident. When another person harms you in a car accident, you need to understand how liability works in your state for car accident injuries. Our Escanaba personal injury lawyers can help you understand how liability functions and how to recover the compensation you need for your medical bills, wage loss and help around the house.

Upper Michigan Law stands apart from other injury firms thanks to our outstanding success in recovering financial damages for our clients. In fact, our firm has been able to recover millions of dollars in verdicts and settlement on behalf of our injured clients. We have over 40 years of combined experience and are members of the Michigan Association for Justice, which means you can trust us to find a way to recover the maximum compensation you are entitled to!

HOW DOES LIABILITY WORK IN MICHIGAN?

Michigan, like many states, operates under a no-fault insurance program. This means that all drivers in Michigan are required to carry personal injury protection (PIP) which covers all medical costs and much of your future lost wages from your job.

You can only sue the party that injured you in some situations:

If you are seriously injured, permanently disfigured, or for economic loss greater than three years.

Even if you are found to be legally responsible for the accident, your required no-fault insurance will pay up to a certain amount of the damages including medical, wage loss and household services.

GET THE COMPENSATION YOU DESERVE

When you suffer serious injury in a car accident, you have a right to push for additional compensation to cover the costs of repairs to your property which basic no-fault insurance does not cover. If you were seriously harmed, our Escanaba car accident attorneys can work with you to recover beyond what PIP insurance can provide you with!
