When you are injured by someone else’s negligence, you do not have to just curse your bad luck and foot the bill while you are recovering in the hospital. You can recover damages related to your injury. Nickola Law Firm helps Flint residents gain restitution in cases in which another’s malice or negligence is responsible for their injuries. If you have been injured in Michigan, reach out to one of our experienced attorneys today.
Each state sets a limit on when a personal injury lawsuit can be brought against an at-fault party. In Michigan, the statute of limitations on tort cases is three years. While there are instances in which exceptions may apply, it is always better to file your lawsuit sooner rather than later. If you do not file your lawsuit within three years, you will very likely see your case dismissed before it ever sees a jury or enters litigation.
Michigan is one of a handful of remaining states that follow a no-fault system for auto accident insurance. That means that most Flint residents will file claims against their own PIP (personal injury protection) policy and be able to recover their medical expenses and a certain amount of their lost wages. You may only sue an at-fault driver if the accident caused permanent impairment, disfigurement, or death. If the at-fault driver is from another state, you might also be able to sue.
If you have been injured on the job, you are eligible to collect workers’ compensation. As a tradeoff, employers have immunity from employee lawsuits unless their workers’ comp coverage does not cover your injury claim or a non-employee was responsible for the accident. Filing a workers’ compensation claim can be an emotionally draining experience especially as the insurance company keeps asking you for more and more information. The attorneys at Nickola Law can help.
When an injury happens on someone else’s property, a seasoned personal injury attorney can prove that the owner was responsible for the accident. These claims are generally filed against commercial general liability policies or homeowners insurance. In some cases, companies or individuals can be sued directly. These include slip and fall accidents, (in some cases) dog bite lawsuits, negligent security, and other forms of premises liability.
If you have been injured by a careless or negligent doctor, you can recover damages related to your pain and suffering, medical expenses, and missed time from work. The attorneys at Nickola Law can help you recover every penny you have lost due to your doctor’s carelessness (and more).
