Get a Michigan Personal Injury Lawyer
Weaver & Associates: Trusted and Powerful
The State of Michigan follows the Modified Comparative Negligence – 51% Rule System in determining the judgement amount for damages in a personal injury case. If you were injured due to somebody else’s recklessness or negligence, you can claim damages as long as your share of the blame does not equal to 51%. The claim should be filed within 3 years or within the State’s Statute of Limitations – a time restriction that bars a claimant from seeking legal remedies after the prescribed time limit has expired. If the case involves a tort, the time limit is 2 years.
Do you need a personal injury lawyer?
The law does not necessarily require you to have a lawyer especially for cases that involve minor injuries and small claim amounts. But if you are suffering from a serious injury or your case involves significant amounts, your best option is to be represented by an attorney. He will be able to secure a larger amount that will cover your present and future medical expenses, as well as compensation for lost income and ability to earn future wages. It is
also important to note that personal injury is a specialized field and not all lawyers are qualified to represent. Take a close look at the attorney’s experience to know if he is the best person to handle your case. How long has he been practicing? Does he specialize in handling personal injury cases? What is his track record as far as recovering damages for his clients? What are his charges?
