Protecting Your Rights

If you were involved in a car accident, hurt on the job, or injured because of someone else’s negligent or wrongful conduct, it’s important that you understand your rights. There are several steps you should take to not only protect your rights but also to safeguard your health and wellbeing.

After an accident or injury, try to do the following:

  • Seek medical attention; if necessary, call 911.
  • Exchange information with the other people involved in the accident.
  • Notify the proper authorities (police, property owner, employer, etc.).
  • Continue seeing a doctor and following their treatment plan/recommendations.
  • Avoid returning to work or return to light-duty work only if authorized by your doctor.
  • Inform your insurance company of the accident (if appropriate).
  • Avoid speaking to any adjusters from the other party’s insurance company.
  • Contact a lawyer for help with your claim.

At Bahrie Law, our Kalamazoo personal injury lawyers are here to guide you through the entire recovery process. Whether you need help filing a first-party claim through your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage after a car crash, bringing a third-party claim against a negligent property owner, or suing a medical establishment for substandard care, we have what it takes to help you fight for maximum compensation.

We also help injured employees and disabled individuals file workers’ compensation and Social Security disability claims and denied claims appeals. We understand the importance of working quickly and efficiently to help you obtain your rightful benefits as soon as possible. While we (nor any attorney) cannot guarantee a specific outcome for your case, we can assure you that we will use our resources, experience, and skill to pursue a favorable result. If we don’t recover compensation for you, you do not owe us anything!

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late

Like every other state, Michigan has various statutes of limitations on different types of claims and cases. Generally speaking, you only have three years from the date of the accident/injury (or the date you discovered/reasonably could have discovered the injury) to file a personal injury lawsuit in Michigan. When it comes to workers’ compensation claims, you should notify your employer of your injury immediately but no more than 90 days after being injured or diagnosed.

These are not the only time limits you need to be aware of. We strongly recommend that you contact our Kalamazoo attorneys right away to avoid missing important deadlines that could affect the outcome of your case.
