Michigan Crash Course Led by Attorney Jody Lipton Will Help Drivers Get the Auto Coverage They Need

By Lipton Law on April 30, 2012 - No comments

Having Michigan no-fault auto insurance coverage that pays the bills when you need it is a key part of recovering from a serious car accident. Unfortunately, not all Michigan drivers have the coverage they need – and once an accident happens, it’s too late to change the coverage for it.

To help Michigan drivers get the coverage they need, attorney Jody Lipton offers a “Crash Course” on May 1, from 12:10 to 12:55, in the basement conference room at the Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan (RIM) at 216 Mack Avenue in Detroit.

Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of the Declarations Page from their own policies. Ms. Lipton will walk participants through the information on the Declarations Page step by step, helping those who attend to understand each item listed on the sheet and what it will do for them after an accident. Ms. Lipton will also help attendees determine where there may be gaps in auto insurance coverage and how they can address them in a cost-effective way that provides the protection an individual and a family needs.

The presentation includes plenty of time for specific questions about your own auto insurance policy, as well as general questions about auto accidents and insurance coverage.

At Lipton Law, a dedicated and skilled Michigan car accident attorney has been helping families with their auto accident needs for over twenty years. If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, we can provide the experienced guidance you need at every step of the process, from filing a no-fault insurance claim to holding negligent parties liable in court.

Does Your Car Insurance Policy Give You the Right Coverage?

By Lipton Law on October 12, 2011 - No comments

Most Michigan car accident costs are covered by the no-fault insurance policies of those involved in the crash. Since no-fault insurance plays such a big role in these all-too-common accidents, it’s important to know whether or not you have sufficient coverage for your needs.

Michigan no-fault insurance law requires drivers to carry at least $20,000 in insurance benefits. These benefits cover the costs of an accident, including medical bills. Michigan law also limits the kind of car accident cases that may be filed in court to the most serious cases of permanent disfigurement, disability, or death.

No-fault insurance benefits typically cover three major categories: personal injury protection (PIP) benefits, property damage protection, and residual liability protection, a “catch-all” that protects drivers against being sued by others involved in the accident. Although coverage in case of an accident with an uninsured or under-insured driver isn’t always included in an automobile insurance policy, it’s wise to consider adding such coverage, especially if you plan to drive in states other than Michigan where auto insurance may not be required.

To help Michigan drivers understand their auto insurance policies and get the coverage they need, experienced Southfield no-fault insurance attorney Jody Lipton is offering a free class at the Community House in Birmingham. The class, called “Crash Course,” will be held on October 18 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. For more information, or for a free consultation after a Michigan car accident, contact Lipton Law today at 248-557-1688.
