MI Personal Injury Lawyers Marc Lipton and Jody Lipton of Lipton Law Co-Hosted Supreme Challenge Fundraiser 2012

By Lipton Law on July 20, 2012 - No comments

The Supreme Challenge Fundraiser 2012 is a fundraising event created to help restore fairness and justice to the Michigan Supreme Court. The event was held on July 12 and was co-hosted by Marc Lipton and Jody Lipton of the Michigan personal injury law firm Lipton Law and Laura Eisenberg of the family law firm Alexander, Eisenberg & Spilman. Individuals in attendance were asked to donate to support three exceptional candidates for the Michigan Supreme Court: Judge Sheila Johnson, Professor Bridget Mary McCormack, and Judge Connie Marie Kelly. Each of these outstanding candidates is endorsed by the Michigan Democratic Party.

The decisions made by the Michigan Supreme Court significantly impact the lives of men, women, and families across the state of Michigan. However, unfortunately more than 80 percent of the current decisions of the court have benefited banks, insurance companies, special interest groups, and polluters at the expense of the state’s middle class families.

The Supreme Challenge Fundraiser 2012 was held not only to raise money for Supreme Court candidates who will undoubtedly be catalysts for positive change, but also to emphasize the significance of having women’s voices heard in government. The Supreme Challenge Fundraiser event also emphasized the ways in which justice and equity can be preserved in the Michigan Supreme Court and why this is essential for the people of Michigan as well as the future of the state.

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.

What’s in Your Insurance Policy? Attorney Jody Lipton Answers at Michigan Health & Rehab Conference

By Lipton Law on April 18, 2012 - No comments

Think you’re familiar with everything there is to know about auto insurance? Think again.

The main differences between liability uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage are more complicated than most people realize. In addition, most of us can’t even say, let alone define, the coverages outlined on our car insurance declaration certificate. What is more, there are a few main areas in which no-fault and other insurance coverages come together; information that every motorist should familiarize themselves with.

MI Auto Insurance ClaimsAll of these points as well as the three main benefits of no-fault auto insurance will be discussed by Southfield personal injury attorney Jody Lipton during her breakout session, “Crash Course: What’s in Your Insurance Policy?”, at the Michigan Health & Rehab Conference tomorrow, Thursday, April 19, 2012 at the Best Western Sterling Inn.

Organized as a collaborative effort by Wright & Filippis and The Filippis Foundation, the conference is a diverse interdisciplinary program highlighting the numerous issues encountered by rehabilitation patients, their family members, and the people providing them with care. As such, most individuals in attendance will be from a wide array of professional backgrounds, including nurses, disability specialists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, discharge planners, case managers, rehabilitation counselors, attorneys, self-insured companies, social workers, auto no-fault insurance adjusters, and worker compensation adjusters. The sessions provided in the conference are structured and accredited by Hi-R-Ed Online as an opportunity for continuing education for nurses and social workers.

Unfortunately, when a person is injured in a car accident, there is a long list of things to take care of. First of all, priority should be given to a person’s health and ensuring that medical attention is received promptly, even if the individual doesn’t think they suffered an injury in the crash. A major factor that some motorists forget about or aren’t aware of is the importance of reporting the accident to their insurance company. However, determining and proving fault for the accident is another story.

In revealing some of the often overlooked aspects of liability and auto insurance, especially with regard to Michigan’s complex no-fault law, Jody Lipton will be offering valuable information and insight to conference attendees so they can better understand a significant financial, and even psychological, challenge that the patients they may be helping are facing.

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.
