Why you need a Michigan car accident lawyer who understands what you are facing

Every state has different laws when it comes to car accidents and personal injury claims. Michigan is one of the few “no-fault states” for car accidents. In most cases, this means your insurance will pay for medical bills, property damage, and other losses up to a point, regardless of who was at fault for the crash. Out-of-state lawyers are usually not licensed to practice law in Michigan, so they often don’t know Michigan law, especially our unique Michigan no-fault law. That lack of knowledge can negatively impact your rights. You could lose out on some benefits or entire legal claims. Knowledge and experience matter. If you were in a Michigan crash or are a Michigan resident, you deserve a lawyer who knows Michigan law. 

Conybeare Law Office has the knowledge to serve you well.

Conybeare Law Office’s skill and experience in car injury law is second-to-none in Southwest Michigan, and we are familiar with the roads you were driving and the police agencies that responded to and investigated your accident. We also know when your injuries and pain and suffering go beyond what Michigan’s No-Fault Insurance benefits cover. We know how to fight and hold the at-fault driver accountable, so you get full justice.

Michigan’s No-Fault Insurance Act impacts your claim.

Michigan has a unique insurance system. In most states, when a person is hit by another driver, the person recovers their medical bills and wage loss from the at-fault driver’s insurance. Michigan is different. Michigan has a “no fault” insurance system, meaning a person gets their insurance benefits whether or not they were at fault in the crash. 

To obtain no-fault benefits, a person must submit an application for no-fault benefits to the correct insurance company. Michigan has special rules for determining which insurance company is the correct insurance company. It is important to know these rules because failing to submit an application to the correct insurance company will bar a person from receiving no-fault benefits, forever. We have the knowledge to help you file the application with the right insurance company.

The Michigan No-Fault law also impacts the money a person can recover from the at-fault driver and their insurance company. Our attorneys understand how to maximize that recovery. 

The No-Fault law applies to all Michigan motor vehicle accidents, including all drivers and passengers. Exactly how it applies depends on the circumstances. Call now for more information on how the Michigan No-Fault law impacts your rights.
