If you or a loved one has been in an auto accident contacting an attorney quickly can make all the difference in the outcome of your case. It is essential to gather evidence as soon as possible. This includes, photographs and videos of the crash scene, vehicles involved and injuries sustained, as well as witness statements and more. Auto accidents can be extremely complex, with many different factors at play. Don’t wait, contact Johnson Law today.
Some of the most common causes of auto accidents are:
- Distracted driving (texting, talking on the phone, not paying attention to the road)
- Driving recklessly (speeding, disobeying street signs)
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Inclement weather (rain, snow, fog)
Under Michigan law, the injured person must prove the following:
- The product was defective
- The defect caused the injury or damage
- An injury or damage occurred
Car accidents can result in lifelong physical, mental and financial consequences. Making matters more complex is Michigan’s No-Fault insurance law. Insurance companies are often looking out for their best interests, not yours. Our experienced auto accident lawyers will help you avoid the costly mistakes many people make when dealing with insurance companies.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT
Seek Immediate Medical Care
Seek emergency or medical care immediately following the accident. A delay may affect your physical and emotional health and also be detrimental to your claim. Keep in mind that the severity of injuries is not always immediately known, and what may appear to be minor can eventually become more serious.
You must contact the police and have an accident report created to document the facts of the accident as soon as possible. Your police report should include all relevant information, including but not limited to, the names, phone numbers and insurance companies of all parties involved in the accident, as well as any statements from witnesses of the accident. Be sure to obtain a copy of all your medical records and document any days lost from work. It is also important to take pictures of the accident scene, the vehicles involved and of your injuries.
