If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident in or near Dewitt, MI, we can help and we will TRAVEL TO YOU. Even if you have been a loyal paying customer with your auto insurance provider, you will be surprised to find the way they treat you when it comes to paying out a settlement or verdict for your injuries. You must understand that these companies are in the money making business and don’t sign off large checks without a tough fight. For this reason, you need an attorney who routinely handles these types of cases and knows how to win. We have over 40 years of experience trying and winning auto accident lawsuits in Michigan and have the case results to back it up. We are not intimidated by the vast resources and legal team of the insurance industry. We will take them on and fight for your rights and make sure you get the compensation you need and deserve.
Michigan no-fault law is supposed to make it easy and simple to collect medical expenses, medical mileage, lost wages, and attendant care but in a large percentage of cases they simply deny your claim or give you a very low offer that doesn’t nearly cover the medical costs you have endured. We can help by starting a lawsuit against your insurance company and speeding up the time of recovery. If you feel that the other driver was negligent we can also help you collect 3rd party benefits which includes pain and suffering. Since we have no fault, it is very difficult to win these cases without an extensive knowledge and experience. You must be able to prove the other driver was negligent and that your injury qualifies as “serious impairment of an important bodily function” among other specifications. Our law team has the skill, the resources, and the dedication to take on the large insurance industry and ensure that you get the best possible result whether it is through a settlement or trial verdict. Unlike many other large accident firms, you will be in direct contact with our lead attorney and you will not be passed off to another firm or attorney that has less experience.

Dewitt, MI is located north of I-69 and just west of US-27 and is a short drive north from the capital city of Lansing. It is home to roughly 4,500 people according to the latest census data.
The city itself was originally named after DeWitt Clinton, who was the Governor of New York during the early 1800’s. It was the first county seat of Clinton County, but it was changed in 1857 to the city of St. Johns. In 1930 there was a tragic fire that engulfed most of the downtown community and did a tremendous amount of damage to historic and business buildings. Dewitt came together and the residential has managed to increase substantially and still is one of the best cities to live in Michigan. In fact, it was voted the 75th best place to live in the entire United States by CNN in 2005.
Dewitt Auto Accident Statistics
The city of Dewitt and Clinton County are home to a surprising large amount of auto accidents. In 2014 alone, there were 2,250 vehicle accidents in Clinton County according to the Michigan State Police Criminal Justice Information Center. Obviously, this statistics fails to take into account all the accidents that go unreported.
