Personal Injury - Automobile Accidents

Automobile accidents can happen anytime through Michigan and metro Detroit – often when you least expect it. In our state, icy and slippery roads in the winter can be a culprit. But one of the most common reasons for an injury accident is driver error.

Bashore Green is one of the state’s leading personal injury law firms that specialize in handling auto accident cases. Every accident reported to law enforcement in Michigan involves a driver who is deemed to be at fault. This provides an opportunity for victims of auto accidents, particularly those who have been injured and have costly medical bills, to receive compensation for their injuries and to help pay for costs, preventing a significant financial commitment.

If you have been injured as a result of an automobile accident there are two possible claims for which we can provide legal services. The first is where an individual sustains a bodily injury arising out of the defendant’s negligent operation of a motor vehicle. In these situations, the injured person is entitled to compensation for the non-economic losses or damages sustained.

The second example is when non-economic damages result in bodily injury in the form of physical pain and suffering, disability or physical impairment, denial of social pleasures, etc. Here, the law requires that the injured party sustained a threshold injury, defined under the law as “serious impairment of a bodily function.” This will require objective medical evidence in support of that injury and which injury must affect a person’s normal daily activities.

Because Michigan is a no-fault state when a person sustains an accidental bodily injury arising out of the ownership, operation, maintenance, or use of a motor vehicle, an insurance company is responsible for paying the following economic benefits:

  • Medical Expenses: Covers medical bills
  • Wage Loss: Covers lost wages for missing work
  • Attendant Care: Covers in-home nursing care
  • Medical Mileage: Covers for mileage to medical appointments
  • Replacement Services: Covers household chores, services and child care
  • Home modifications: Covers expense for making your home accessible in case of disabling injury
  • Vehicle Modifications: Cover expense for making your vehicle accessible in case of a disabling injury
