After you’ve been injured in a rear-end collision, a Detroit rear-end crash lawyer can help you understand your options for recovering full compensation for your injuries and damages.
After most vehicle collisions in Michigan, you can file an insurance claim to use your no-fault auto insurance and personal injury protection (PIP) benefits to recover the losses you’ve sustained due to your accident.
However, when you’ve sustained a serious injury, such as those that often occur in rear-end crashes, you may be able to seek full compensation from the at-fault driver. A Detroit rear-end collision lawyer can help you determine whether your injuries will qualify.
There’s nothing wrong with no-fault claims, and your attorney can assist you with maximizing your PIP benefits if that’s the right step for your circumstances. Negotiating with your insurance company and proving your injuries is the biggest challenge when utilizing your own insurance.
In some cases, filing for personal injury compensation can also be a good option. When you’ve suffered extensive losses, such as medical expenses and missed time at work, and your injuries have changed your life, you deserve more than just reimbursement—you deserve justice.
In addition to financial losses, filing a personal injury claim against an at-fault driver can allow you to seek non-economic losses, such as compensation for your pain and suffering.
How do you know if you qualify to file a personal injury claim for your Detroit rear-end collision? To file a personal injury claim for an auto wreck, you must meet the serious injury threshold. Essentially, your injury must have been permanent or resulted in damages that far exceeded the limits of your no-fault insurance policy.
Here are a few examples of serious injuries common to Detroit rear-end collisions:
Filing a PIP or personal injury claim is hard work. It requires investigating your accident, negotiating with insurance companies, gathering evidence, collecting documentation, and, in some instances, arguing your case in court.
When you’ve been seriously injured, this work is more than you can likely do on your own. You don’t have to. A Detroit rear-end crash attorney can assist you.
If your injuries are serious after your rear-end accident, you can file a personal injury claim. You need to be reimbursed for your losses, and if your injuries are life-changing, you can be compensated for the impact your crash has had.
