We have multiple settlements and verdicts exceeding $1,000,000 against the largest of insurance companies in the US and even the United States Air Force. Our injury attorneys have dedicated their lives to representing people, not insurance companies. We help out victims of auto accidents who have suffered injuries and need help collecting the financial compensation that they deserve. We will TRAVEL TO YOU unlike many other firms. Michigan is different from most other states because we have enacted No-Fault law. The purpose of this law is to make it easier to collect what is called first party benefits. The drawback to this type of insurance system is that it is much more difficult to collect third party benefits which most people associate with pain and suffering and non-economic damages. Unfortunately, Michigan insurance companies make it very difficult to collect both first and third party benefits. It’s not supposed to be difficult to collect medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care, medical mileage, and more but auto insurance providers routinely will deny your claim or give you a very unfair initial offer.
Even if you have paid your premiums for decades without a missed a payment, they will still require to fight them for your compensation. These companies are in the money making business and will do anything to lessen the amount of money they pay out. WE CAN HELP. We fight those companies tooth and nail to make sure that you get the best possible result. We have the resources to hire reconstruction experts, gather witness information, and anything else that is required to win your case. We will take on these large businesses for you and we are not intimidated by their team of lawyers. We have the experience, resources, and dedication that is needed to give you the best settlement or highest verdict possible.
We will ensure that you collect your no fault benefits, isn’t that why you pay for auto insurance in the first place? In order to do so we will file a lawsuit against your own insurance company. We can also help your pain and suffering expenses. If the other driver in the accident was negligent and your injuries are serious enough we can also file a lawsuit against their insurance company to recover third party benefits. Like I mentioned earlier, third party benefits are harder to collect in Michigan than most states because of the wording the law utilizes. For this reason, you need an attorney who routinely files and wins this type of lawsuit. We know how to win these types of cases and we have over 40 years experience doing so. We will NOT pass off your case to another law firm or hand it off to an attorney with less experience. You will be working directly with David M. Clark who has a track record of great success in auto accident lawsuits.

St. John’s Car Accident Statistics
Even though St. John’s and Clinton County isn’t one of the largest cities and counties in Michigan, there are a good deal of auto accidents that are reported. In 2014, there were 2,250 accidents that were officially reported. It’s also important to remember that a large percentage of accidents that aren’t reported to the state so it’s safe to assume the actual number of accidents is much higher than this figure represents. There were a total of 9 fatalities resulting from the 2,000 accidents, 316 injuries reported, and 1,925 included property damage of some sort. We would also like to include where these accidents occurred so here is a quick breakdown. 382 of the accidents took place on Interstate Roads, 1,235 accidents took place on Local Streets, 288 took place on US Routes, and 7 of the accidents took place in unknown locations.
