A car accident can have a tremendous impact on your life. It can leave you with physical pain that is unbearable, physical limitations that initially seem unmanageable, and emotional devastation that is undeniable. But that’s not all. A serious motor vehicle accident can also leave you reeling from the financial toll it takes, which usually includes medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and lost wages. Taken together, these damages can threaten nearly every aspect of your well-being, making it all the more important to do what you can to protect yourself.
At our law office, we understand the grim realities that face car accident victims. But there is hope. By pursuing a personal injury lawsuit, victims can seek to impose liability and recover the compensation they need to offset their damages and secure stability while they focus on their recovery. But the process can be fraught with complications, which is why it often best to address these matters with the help of a legal advocate who will know how to fight for your interests.
While this certainly includes putting forth evidence that another driver was responsible for the accident in quest and thus your injuries, it’s also about protecting you from claims of fault. As we discussed in a previous blog, Michigan recognizes comparative fault, meaning that each party involved will be allocated a percentage of fault for the accident, and then damages will be awarded accordingly. Therefore, by not only demonstrating a defendant’s liability but also minimizing your fault in causing the accident, you can maximize your chances of recovering compensation for the full extent of your damages.
