Providing The Edge You Need In Auto Accident Cases
All motorists, whether they are operating a small passenger vehicle, motorcycle, tractor-trailer truck or bus, have an important responsibility to follow all traffic laws and drive safely. Unfortunately, automobile negligence in Michigan occurs far too often, leading to life-changing collisions.
At Lipton Law, our Southfield personal injury attorneys are dedicated to helping victims of reckless or negligent drivers. We understand how difficult it is to not only recover from a car crash, but also keep the bills and expenses under control. When you work with us, our first priority is helping you through this difficult time.
Types of Automobile Negligence
From cellphones to infotainment systems to disruptive passengers, there are so many distractions that motorists face when they get behind the wheel. Unfortunately, it only takes a few seconds of inattentive driving for a collision to occur. This preventable accident is one type of automobile negligence. Speeding, driving while intoxicated or drowsy are other examples.
Our lawyers regularly represent car accident victims hurt by others’ careless acts. We fight to secure fair compensation for the injuries caused by driver negligence, which include:
- Broken bones
- Burn injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Traumatic brain injury
These injuries are only some of many life-altering or fatal injuries that vehicle occupants, pedestrians and bicyclists can suffer in a Michigan automobile crash. Acts of negligence are much more dangerous than most people realize.
Holding At-Fault Individuals Legally Responsible
No matter what causes an auto accident, the aftermath can be devastating. If you have been involved in a severe collision, you could face extensive financial, emotional and physical challenges for years. You may receive compensation through no-fault auto insurance and other policies; however, these benefits may not be substantial enough to cover all expenses associated with your injuries.
Depending on the circumstances of your collision, you may be entitled to additional compensation from the insurance company, an auto manufacturer or a driver who is determined to have caused the accident. We are ready to educate you on your options and assess the strength of your claim.
