Car Accident Lawyers

Full Compensation For Motor Vehicle Injury Or Death

Highways 23 and I-96 serve as the crossroads of central Michigan. Hundreds of people are injured or killed each year in traffic accidents while going about their daily business or traveling through Livingston County.

At the root of nearly every car accident is a careless, distracted or aggressive driver. The Law Offices of Harris & Literski excels at holding those negligent motorists and their insurers accountable. We are recognized for our capacity to investigate motor vehicle accidents and present a compelling case in settlement negotiations or the courtroom.

Personal Service For A Very Personal Ordeal

We know that the aftermath of an accident is stressful and chaotic, especially if you can't return to work, your vehicle is wrecked or your family member suffered severe injuries. We help clients with property damage claims, medical claims and insurance company communications while we are building a case for compensation.

Our Brighton personal injury attorneys have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for accident victims in Brighton, Howell, Ann Arbor and surrounding communities of Southeast Michigan. We also welcome out-of-state drivers injured in the Livingston County area.

We have experience with every auto accident scenario, including:

Our lawyers often go to accident scenes to collect evidence, talk to witnesses and visualize what happened. We also use professional investigators when necessary to establish the negligence of the other driver.

Hit By An Uninsured Or Underinsured Driver?
As many as 20 percent of all drivers on Michigan roads have no auto insurance, and thousands more carry only the minimum liability coverage. In the event of a serious accident, the injured person may have to file a claim against his or her own uninsured motorist (UM) or underinsured motorist (UIM) policy to cover the losses. Getting fair treatment from your own insurance company can be just as difficult as collecting from the other driver's insurer. Our attorneys regularly handle UM/UIM injury claims.

Pursuing Your Full And Fair Compensation

Most people are only seeking a fair settlement for their car accident. But how much is fair? You may not know what your case is worth or whether the insurance company's offer is reasonable. We work closely with the family and with various professionals to understand the prospects for recovery and to gauge your needs and losses. Through negotiations or at trial, we will stand up for your rightful compensation for medical expenses and ongoing care, lost wages and earning capacity, disability or disfigurement, and pain and suffering.
