Personal Injury Representation After A Car Accident Or Any Accidental Injury
When you’ve been injured in an accident, the road toward recovery can be a long and stressful one. Medical treatments can cost a fortune, and if your injuries have forced you to miss work, you can quickly find yourself underneath a mountain of debt. When your injuries are the result of the negligent actions of someone else, you shouldn’t have to bear the burden of recovery on your own. That’s why having an experienced personal injury attorney working for you can make all the difference in the world during the recovery process.
With the right personal injury attorney by your side, you can help hold the individuals who caused your injuries responsible by receiving compensation that can cover the cost of your medical bills, replace lost wages, and cover other associated pain and suffering costs.

What injuries do your attorneys help with?
Through the years we’ve helped our clients take on a long list of personal injury claims. We try to remind all of our clients that, while your injury may be unique, what matters from a legal standpoint is how you were injured. With that in mind, the most common accidents and injuries we work with include:
- Auto accidents in cities and on highways
- Truck and other commercial vehicle accidents

- Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) and paralysis
- Loss of limbs through amputation
- Severe burns
- Fatalities leading to wrongful death case
If you have been injured in an accident, we can help you seek justice and relief through a personal injury claim or lawsuit.
What if I share some of the blame for my accident?
Just because you may have some share of the blame for an accident that resulted in injury, doesn’t mean you can’t win compensation for your case. The state of Michigan does follow a “modified comparative fault” rule, which was designed to govern cases where the victim is found to be partly at fault for the accident. In many injury cases, you may try to hold someone responsible for your injuries, only to see them turn around and try to blame you for causing the accident. If the court does rule that you’re partly at fault, you can still receive compensation, but the amount you can receive will be reduced in accordance with the level of fault you own.
For example, if you are in a car accident with someone and the court rules that you were 10% at fault for the accident, then your total compensation will be reduced by 10% to account for the amount of fault you share with the other party. Assuming you were 10% at fault for the accident, and the court decided to award $100,000 in damages, you would only be eligible to receive $90,000 for your injuries.
