Helping clients obtain compensation for their West Michigan injuries
A personal injury occurs when you have been injured due to someone else’s carelessness. The first thing you should do after you have been injured in an automobile or motorcycle accident, or if you have been injured by a dog bite, is make sure that the police have been notified. You should also seek immediate medical treatment even if you’re not sure that you have been seriously injured. Make notes about the accident. Write down how it happened and who witnessed it. Also, protect any evidence of your personal injury.
Next, contact Mumford, Schubel, Macfarlane & Barnett to discuss your case. Our Battle Creek personal injury lawyers help clients achieve a fair and reasonable resolution to their personal injury actions. Although we are located in Battle Creek, we also deal with personal injury clients in surrounding areas including Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Coldwater, Hastings, and throughout West Michigan.

The statute of limitations in Michigan for a personal injury action is 3 years. The statute of limitations for a No-fault Insurance claim is only 1 year! Do not wait until it is too late to bring your personal injury claim, including your insurance claim, against the person who caused your accident or the insurance company responsible for your benefits.
What compensation can we help you recover?
You may be entitled to compensation if you have been injured in an automobile accident caused by another person. This compensation comes in different forms. What you are able to recover depends on many factors.
According to Michigan law, the person who caused your personal injury is responsible for damages including:
- Time lost from work after three years from the date of the accident
- Wages lost in excess of the Michigan no fault monthly maximum
- Any permanent serious disfigurement or disability
- In the event of death or serious impairment of body function, compensation for physical disability, pain and suffering, emotional distress, fright, shock, and other types of damages may be recovered
- Any other costs caused by your injury
Michigan’s comparative negligence system allows you to recover against another person, even if you also were negligent, as long as the other person was more negligent than you were. The amount of your recovery will be reduced by the percentage you were found to be at fault.
