Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Personal Injury Law in Michigan

If you’ve been in an accident and have sustained an injury, you might be feeling overwhelmed and unsure as to how you should proceed. That’s why it’s important to seek the advice and consult a Michigan Personal Injury Lawyer. Call us today at (313) 996-5300 to schedule your free and confidential consultation. If you’re still undecided, consider the following frequently asked questions that we receive about Michigan personal injuries:

Q: Do I really need a lawyer to assist me with my case?

A: While hiring a lawyer is not necessary to file a personal injury lawsuit, having a knowledgeable Michigan Personal Injury Lawyer by your side will only increase your chances of obtaining a successful outcome in your case. The laws that govern personal injury claims vary depending on the injury, and oftentimes, personal injury lawsuits can be complex and complicated. An attorney who is knowledgeable regarding personal injury law can help guide you through the legal process.

If you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident, you might also want to consider the benefits of consulting with a lawyer when it comes to dealing with your car insurance company. Under Michigan law, you are required to obtain no fault car insurance, but what that means and what policy benefits you are entitled to all depend on the facts of your case. An attorney who has knowledge dealing with insurance companies and with the complex Michigan insurance laws will be able to review the facts and evidence in your case, can review your insurance policy, and can advocate on your behalf so that you receive any benefits or other compensation to which you might be entitled.

Q: What types of personal injuries cases does Berry & Berri, PLLC handle?

A: At Berry & Berri, PLLC, we take on a variety of personal injury matters including injuries that are the result of car, truck, and motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, dog or other animal bites and attacks, and dangerous or defective products. 

Q: How long do I have to decide whether I want to file a personal injury lawsuit?\

A: Under Michigan law, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is three years. What this means is that you have three years from the date of your accident or injury to file your case. While this may seem like a lengthy period of time, because personal injury claims can be complicated, especially if there might be more than one person at-fault for your injury, it is important to consult with a personal injury lawyer sooner, rather than later. 

Q: But what if I can’t afford a personal injury lawyer?

A: In Michigan, most personal injury lawyers who represent injured clients, including our attorneys at Berry & Berri, PLLC, will take cases on a contingency fee basis. What this means is that your lawyer will only receive their fees or get paid if and when your case is successful.
