Car, Truck &
Car, truck and pedestrian accidents are all too common. According to the Michigan State Police, there were 3,734 traffic accidents in Grand Traverse County in 2017—eight of which resulted in fatalities.
While accidents range from fender benders to those that tragically result in multiple fatalities, all should be fully investigated to ensure that you are protected in the event of a civil suit brought by another party, damage to your vehicle or injury.

Car Accident Representation Offered on a Contingency Basis

What Claims Qualify as Pain and Suffering?
Victims may experience physical and emotional pain following a serious car accident. These experiences may qualify as “pain and suffering” and may contribute toward your total settlement.
Physical pain is easier to qualify as a determinant for a “pain and suffering” settlement. If you have sustained back pain, neck pain, internal organ damage or other long-term or chronic injuries, you may qualify for compensation.
Emotional pain and suffering is the more difficult claim. Emotional pain and suffering may include fear, insomnia and constant worry. In some cases, victims may suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. The most severe emotional pain and suffering will have a negative impact on your quality of life.
