The other driver’s insurance company may contact you requesting information from your end. In this case, it is best to speak with a Michigan auto accident attorney who can help you deal with the insurance company.

The company representative may want to get a statement from you, obtain a copy of your medical records or try to settle with you.

Cases can often be settled out of court, but a lot will depend on what type of settlement the insurance company offers for your claim. If the offer is fair, it may be best to settle, but if the offer is unfair we often will continue the fight in court. It is important to take into account any loss time at work, all medical costs, travel to and from appointments as well as many miscellaneous items are addressed.
