Auto Accidents

Bringing experience and empathy to your case.

Statistically, at some point in their lifetime, almost every American will be involved in a motor vehicle accident. They range from seemingly minor fender-benders to catastrophic wrecks with life-altering injuries. When you’ve been injured in an auto accident, even if the injury is at first minor, complications can occur down the road. You could be looking at unexpected medical bills, lost income and other out-of-pocket expenses. After any motor vehicle collision, it is important to seek immediate medical care.

 

Submitting an injury claim under Michigan auto accident laws is not straightforward. Michigan no-fault insurance laws are different than almost every other state. Whether you need help with your own No-Fault Insurance Carrier (PIP) after sustaining an injury in an auto accident, or whether you have been injured in an accident caused by another driver’s fault, Michigan Accident & Injury Law can provide individualized advice and direction to you or a loved one.

 

Attorney Jeremy Tiedt strives to help you through this difficult time and provide you with not only legal advice, but also compassion and a deeper understanding of your situation. Having had family members involved in serious motor vehicle accidents and having been the victim of a serious motor vehicle accident himself, Jeremy understands firsthand the impact and devastation a personal injury can have on your life. Whether you or a family member has sustained an injury, it is important for you to contact an experienced attorney to learn your legal rights.

 

You may have questions about how no-fault insurance applies to your case. You may have questions about whether you have a case for your pain and suffering. You may have questions about negligence, or who is at fault for an accident. You may have questions about what to do immediately following an automobile accident.

Frequently asked questions

What types of benefits can I receive from Michigan’s no-fault insurance if I am involved in a motor vehicle accident?


Under Michigan’s no-fault insurance accident laws, you could be entitled to benefits no matter how the accident happened (sometimes referred to as “PIP” or Personal Injury Protection benefits). These benefits include all reasonable and necessary medical care and treatment paid for life, lost wages from missing work, household replacement services, attendant care, medical mileage reimbursement, home/vehicle modifications and family benefits. There are important steps you must take in order to get these benefits.




Can I receive compensation for pain & suffering following a motor vehicle accident?


In the State of Michigan, if you were injured in a motor vehicle accident and the accident was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, permanent bodily disfigurement, serious impairment of your body functions, emotional damages, loss of a normal life and excess economic damages. These damages would be recovered from a third-party claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance company.


If you believe that someone else was at fault for your accident and the injuries sustained therein, don’t wait. Contact Jeremy Tiedt at Michigan Accident & Injury Law for a free consultation, and let us help guide you to a fair recovery.




Who is at fault for an accident?


An investigation should be performed immediately to determine who was negligent or at fault for the accident. Generally, operators of motor vehicles must exercise “reasonable care under the circumstance.” If a driver fails to use reasonable care, that driver could be found negligent, or at-fault, for the accident. Some factors a court looks at to determine if a person was negligent include, but are not limited to: whether the driver was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving too fast or slow for conditions; failure to yield the right of way; failure to obey traffic signs or signals; distracted driving or fatigue.

What should I do following a motor vehicle accident?


Following an accident, you should contact the police immediately at the scene of the accident. The police will be a valuable resource in conducting the initial investigation at the scene. You should also take pictures and exchange insurance information with the other driver at the scene of the accident.

If you feel like you have an injury, even if it feels minor, you should immediately seek medical treatment at an emergency room, urgent care unit or with your primary care physician. Make sure you tell your medical professional every injury or complaint of pain that you’re feeling. Even small pains or complaints can lead to a much larger issue if not addressed immediately. Addressing each pain or complaint with your medical professional assists them in correctly diagnosing your injuries. You should follow your medical professional’s advice regarding a treatment plan and do not miss an appointment.

You should report this incident right away to your insurance company. Whatever you do, do not give a recorded statement to any insurance representative. The best rule of thumb is to contact an attorney as soon as possible following an accident to assist in the handling of your personal injury case.
