Car Accident in Michigan

Michigan Auto Accident Attorneys

Serving clients throughout Michigan since 1951

The Michigan car accident attorneys at the Sinas Dramis Law Firm understand the hardships that can arise after someone has been in an automobile accident. Anyone suffering bodily injury from a car accident in Michigan is subject to the Michigan no-fault law.

When a person has been injured in a car accident caused by the fault (i.e., negligence) of another motorist, the No-Fault Act lets the victim pursue a liability claim. This liability claim (also called a tort claim) permits the victim to recover compensation for two distinct types of damages: 1) excess economic loss damages and 2) noneconomic loss damages (i.e., pain and suffering).

If you’ve been injured in a Lansing auto accident or Grand Rapids car accident, or in a vehicle collision anywhere across Michigan or Illinois, we encourage you to contact one of our auto accident attorneys for a free consultation. We will review your case, at no cost to you, and will determine if we can help.
