What is Drunk Driving?

According to Michigan law, there are different types of DUIs. Operating while visually impaired (OWVI) and operating while impaired (OWI) are terms used to describe different levels of drunk driving. These levels of impairment are based on the blood alcohol content of the drunk driver and may also represent law enforcement observations of drivers’ abilities.

How do these impact your auto accident claim and your no-fault benefits? What does your insurance policy cover? We can make sure you learn the answers and receive what you may be entitled to.

It may be obvious to you who is to blame for the car crash, but legally establishing a driver’s negligence and your severe personal injury can be a complicated process. Our Michigan drunk driving accident lawyers have the experience to help you understand how your claim and benefits are affected. 

Our team of drunk driving accident lawyers can protect your rights and establish who is at fault. This is an important step for victims of Michigan car accidents, especially when a drunk driver is involved. Insurance companies may be reluctant to compensate you for your claim. But we can help you understand your rights. 

Car accidents can be overwhelming. Dealing with the effects of drunk driving accidents is even more frustrating. Michigan law is designed to protect victims of drunk drivers, but you need an advocate who knows the law. That is why Mike Morse Law Firm stands ready to go the distance for you.

What is Car Accident Compensation?

For those involved in car accidents, time off work can add up quickly. Recovering from your injuries after a motor vehicle accident can mean a considerable amount of time away from work. 

Financial loss may occur when you have to take time to recover from injuries. You may even be forced to leave a job or change position. 

Our experienced injury lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve for lost wages. Your claim can get you coverage for:

  • Job loss
  • Lost wages
  • Attendant care claim
  • Vehicle loss/damage
  • Pain & suffering
  • Past-due medical bills

If you are injured in a Michigan drunk driving accident, you may find it difficult to take care of chores or other household work that used to be routine. When you are injured, others may have to care for your daily needs. No-fault insurance may provide replacement services so you can afford to pay someone else to do the things that you can no longer take care of yourself.

If someone else must care for you personally because you were injured, you may be able to get attendant care benefits. In this case, a family member or professional caregiver can assist you in performing activities of daily living and be paid for it.

We want you to get the insurance benefits and services you deserve and need. Our drunk driving accident lawyers can help you understand what you are entitled to and how to get it. Contact our law firm and speak to an experienced accident attorney. 

What We Do While You Recover

Our personal injury lawyers do more than fight to get you your compensation. We understand Michigan no-fault insurance and how to get you the personal injury protection or PIP benefits you may be entitled to. Your medical bills may exceed your benefits.

When you are involved in a Michigan drunk driving accident, you need to understand what benefits your insurance policy offers. Your PIP benefits may be limited, and you may recover the expenses from the other driver if you or your passengers were seriously injured. 

While you focus your efforts on recovering from your injuries, you need a law firm large enough to go up against the insurance companies on your behalf. Mike Morse Law Firm is the largest personal injury firm in Michigan, and we have the experience to get you the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.

The driver and passengers of an auto accident can suffer a wide range of injuries. These can sometimes have long-lasting effects. Getting the compensation you deserve means having adequate coverage for current and future medical expenses. This not only provides for your current needs but can give you peace of mind for the future as well. Mike Morse Law Firm can help make sure your bills are covered.

When a Death Has Occurred

Sadly, drunk driving accidents often result in fatalities. According to the Michigan Department of State Police, over 40 percent of traffic fatalities in 2019 involved drunk driving. 

If your family has suffered the loss of a loved one due to drunk or distracted driving, you need a drunk driving accident lawyer to handle the wrongful death claim or lawsuit. The drunk driver and the insurance company need to be held accountable, and an experienced accident lawyer can make this process easier. 

If the victim had dependents, he or she may need financial assistance. Insurance companies are not concerned with the needs of these victims. Our law office can help you get the financial security your family deserves.

Having a team of experienced attorneys on your side can help your family resolve the financial impact of your loved one’s death in an auto accident. Your peace of mind is at stake, so act quickly. Michigan law allows for wrongful death claims or lawsuits to be filed only within 3 years of the loss.

Michigan Dram Shop & Host Liability

Michigan has unique laws governing liability for licensed alcohol vendors. In some cases, an Michigan licensed alcohol vendor may share liability with a drunk driver. Laws that restrict serving alcohol to minors or visibly intoxicated people can also affect who is determined to be liable in accidents in Michigan. 

Our experienced attorneys can help drunk driving accident victims navigate these types of complicated situations. Call us for a free consultation.
