We Fight For Accident Victims In The Upper Peninsula
We serve the Upper Peninsula because we call Escanaba and the UP home. You need an experienced and proactive lawyer who will fight for you against insurance companies.
Contrary to what they will tell you, insurance adjusters and other insurance representatives are never really on your side. Their job is to protect the bottom line of the company, which means they will try to avoid paying as much as possible on your claim.
We take the opposite approach. We are with you every step of the way, side-by-side and available whenever you need us. Think of our personal injury lawyers as family who will always answer your call and always fight for your maximum compensation.

At Atnip & Associates, PLLC, our personal injury attorneys in the Upper Peninsula bring 85 years of legal experience to your case, and we will help you make informed decisions throughout the legal process.
Your Insurance Coverage In Michigan
If you have car insurance, you have no-fault insurance coverage. That provides all insured drivers and almost all passengers with benefits that include:
- Unlimited medical benefits for life
- Up to three years’ lost wages for motor vehicle accident-related injuries
Third-party claim: Were you less than 50 percent at fault? You may be able to sue the other driver’s insurance for damages beyond no-fault insurance coverage.
First-party claim: Does the other driver not have enough insurance coverage to pay your damages? Is your own insurance refusing to pay benefits? You may be able to file a lawsuit to get the full benefits you deserve.
Hit By A Drunk Driver?
Proving fault may be easier if we can get a hold of valid blood alcohol content (BAC) test results. We may even be able to file a lawsuit for damages against the bar or restaurant that last served the intoxicated or impaired driver. This is called a dram shop liability claim.
