If you have been injured due to the negligence or intentional actions of someone else, you deserve to be compensated for your damages.

When injuries are serious, it isn’t always possible to replace what was lost, but when you have a highly qualified lawyer on your side, you’ve taken an important step toward obtaining meaningful relief and holding the liable parties accountable.
Respected firm takes on vehicle collision and premises liability cases
Winning a personal injury claim in Michigan requires proving the elements of a specific cause of action. For negligence claims, this means that a plaintiff must show that the defendant owed them a duty of care and violated it, leading to harm. Each one of these elements can be highly contested depending on the facts of a case.
On top of this, even when liability is clear, the damages amount is almost always contested. In short, personal injury law is complex, every case is different and there is no substitute for a successful track record. Since 1994, we’ve obtained more than $250 million for victims in matters relating to:
- Vehicle accidents — Our firm advocates for Michigan auto accident victims and clients injured in other types of vehicle collisions, including crashes involving trucks, motorcycles, boats and bicycles. We’ll answer any questions you have about the state’s no-fault insurance system and your various legal options.
- Slip and fall incidents — In a moment, you might experience a slip and fall injury when the property owner or other party responsible for maintaining safe premises fails to clean up a spill, repair an unsafe walking surface or clear ice from a sidewalk. Should you get hurt in this way, we’ll assess whether reasonable measures were taken to remove or identify the hazard.
- Dog bites — Michigan’s strict liability rule means that the owner of a dog that bites someone is responsible for any resulting injuries, even if there was no prior indication that the animal was dangerous.
- Traumatic brain injuries — A traumatic brain injury is different than many other types of harm that can result from a car accident or fall. Recognizing the full extent of the damage might be hard, and symptoms such as dizziness or headaches could last for months or years. Before determining what appropriate compensation might be, we consult with experts in order to gain a detailed perspective regarding the short- and long-term consequences of a blow to the head.
- Wrongful death — Moving forward after a loved one has died due to someone else’s negligence or wrongful act can be very difficult. Our firm advises estate representatives and surviving family members on wrongful death actions so that they can obtain a legal resolution that provides some comfort after a tragic loss.
- Social Security Disability — People with a work history that makes them eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) can collect benefits if a medical condition will prevent them from working for at least 12 months. Unfortunately, many worthy claims are initially rejected. If you are seeking these payments, we’ll explain if you qualify and will battle to secure the SSDI payments that you’ve earned.
- Construction accidents — During a construction project, busy workers and heavy machinery create a hazard for workers and bystanders. When faulty equipment, careless behavior or some other type of negligence triggers a construction accident, our firm strives to collect fair payment for injured plaintiffs.
As personal injury cases often involve complicated issues of both law and fact, expert and technical evidence is regularly needed to prove claims and damages. Insurance companies and defense lawyers are committed to limiting or eliminating payouts to plaintiffs no matter how worthy their case might be.
Our experienced personal injury attorney understands the legal standards that must be satisfied and can present claims in a persuasive manner. Under Michigan’s statute of limitations, you have three years to file a lawsuit, but when you need money to address the financial burden arising from your injury, it’s in your interest to retain qualified legal support as promptly as possible.
