Michigan Auto Accident Attorneys

Advocating for the injured throughout Michigan since 1951

The Michigan car accident attorneys at Sinas Dramis understand the hardships that arise after a person is injured in a motor vehicle collision. We know the physical, emotional and financial consequences that accompany a car crash — not only for the injured person, but for that person’s family as well.

For more than 60 years, our Michigan car accident lawyers have been advocating for the rights of injured individuals. Our attorneys are recognized as leading authorities on Michigan’s complex auto no-fault law, which provides that persons who’ve suffered a car accident injury: 1) are entitled to personal protection insurance benefits (also called “PIP benefits”) from their auto insurance company, and 2) can seek certain damages from the at-fault driver.

When an accident victim files a lawsuit against the at-fault driver, it is known as an “auto negligence claim” or a “liability claim.” This suit is brought separately from the injured person’s claim for no-fault insurance benefits. Some law firms, however, will only handle the auto negligence claim, forcing the accident victim to find another lawyer to handle the claim for no-fault PIP benefits.

But that’s not the case at Sinas Dramis. Our experienced Michigan car accident attorneys handle claims for no-fault insurance benefits AND claims for damages against at-fault drivers.

If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle collision, contact the Sinas Dramis team of auto accident lawyers in Lansing or a car accident attorneys in Grand Rapids for a free consultation. Or call 1-866-758-0031.
