No two cases are the same. You can often resolve a claim in three months and they can take as long as two years. It really depends on the individual, the claim, the facts, oftentimes the insurance company that’s involved, but each case is an individual case and must be looked at under the totality of the circumstances. Often where it’s filed come into play to determine how fast a case can be resolved.
In terms of dollar figures, what is the range you’ve seen in Michigan for settlements or jury verdicts?The ultimate value of a claim is going to be on an individual basis given the nature of the injuries, the severity, and the impact that it’s had on an individual. In order to even file a third-party claim against an at-fault driver, an individual must overcome the tort threshold in Michigan. Meaning they must suffer a serious bodily impairment that affects one’s general ability to lead a normal life or a permanent serious disfigurement. So in order to pass that threshold an individual must have very serious injuriesThe amount that a person ultimately attains is often going to depend on the amount of insurance that’s available for that party to access. That’s why it’s imperative people are insured themselves, but also carry underinsured motorist coverage and uninsured motorist coverage.
What’s the first step to take with my auto insurance company after a car accident?
There are so many things to consider after you’ve been in a car accident in Michigan. The first step you should take is to notify your auto insurance company immediately following the crash. Then you must file an application for No-Fault insurance benefits.

In Michigan, there’s a strict one-year time limit to notify your own No-Fault insurance company of your car accident, and to file your application for No-Fault benefits. This is referred to as a “first-party” auto accident case. Also, there is a three-year time limit to file a lawsuit against the negligent driver’s car insurance company for pain and suffering. That’s referred to as a “third-party” auto accident case.

I heard that Michigan is a “No-Fault” state. How does that pertain to my car accident?
The term No-Fault means that both parties involved in an auto accident are entitled to benefits from their insurance companies, no matter who caused the accident. The Michigan No-Fault law can become complicated, due to several issues such as different insurance policies, workers compensation and the strict Michigan personal injury threshold law. It’s best to speak with an auto accident attorney who has experience and knowledge of the No-Fault law. Call Michigan Auto Law at (866) 886-9668 and we can help you now.
