NEGLIGENCE

The firm has obtained substantial verdicts and settlements for injured clients.  Our personal injury team focuses on the following areas:

  • Auto Accidents. 
    • We represent individuals who have been injured in the State of Michigan.  Michigan's no fault act requires insurance companies to pay for certain costs and losses suffered as a result of an accident involving the use of a motor vehicle.  This is referred to as a first party claim.  These benefits are contractual by their nature, meaning the right to recovery does not depend on whether the other party(ies) were negligent or not.  Substantial benefits are available to individuals injured arising from the use of a motor vehicle, including the right to reimbursement of medical treatment, wage loss.  You should not assume that your insurer or agent has told you about, or paid all claims you may be entitled to receive under your no-fault policy.  Our firm offers a free initial consultation in such cases.  We often represent individuals in first party claims on an hourly basis, but in certain circumstances may also consider representation of first party claims on a contingency fee. 
    • We represent  individuals who have been seriously injured against the driver of another vehicle.  This is referred to as a third party claim.  In a third party claim, the insurance company of a negligent driver or vehicle owner will pay certain costs, expenses, and damages to an inured party.  An injured person may recover damages for pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of companionship, and future earning potential in some cases.  We typically represent individuals in third party claims on a contingency fee basis.  Our firm offers a free initial consultation in such cases.
