Every year, far too many people across the state of Michigan are injured in preventable accidents. Negligent property managers fail to de-ice their parking lots, causing painful slip and fall mishaps. Aggressive drivers force people off the road. Employers fail to provide proper training for workers who handle heavy, dangerous equipment. These sorts of dangerous, irresponsible behaviors can cause irreparable damage to the lives of unsuspecting individuals. Injuries not only create pain, fear, and trauma at the moment they occur but often have long-lasting effects. People injured by someone else’s reckless behavior can face high hospital bills, time lost working, physical pain, and emotional suffering. They can spend the rest of their lives paying for the consequences of another person’s negligence.

The state of Michigan, including the Detroit area, sees a shocking number of injuries every year. According to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, injury is the leading cause of death and disability for Michiganders aged one to 44. There were 61,932 hospitalizations for injuries in Michigan in 2011 alone.
Many of these injuries arise from motor vehicle traffic crashes. The Traffic Crash Reporting Unit of the Michigan State Police reports that, in 2016:
In 2015, in 297,023 total reported traffic crashes, 963 people were killed and 74,157 people were injured. Injuries, including those caused by car accidents, could be severely decreased across Michigan if people would behave responsibly and rationally. We have a moral and legal obligation to think about the safety of others as we work, drive, and go about our lives. When someone gets behind the wheel drunk or fails to make their work environment safe, innocent people can and do suffer the consequences.
Personal injury law exists to ensure that victims can receive financial compensation when they are injured by someone else’s actions. It is important to remember that someone does not need to be intentionally abusive or aggressive to be held legally liable for your injury. Often, individuals or groups create dangerous conditions and indirectly hurt other people when they behave with negligence. Negligence, a key concept in personal injury law, occurs when a party willfully or unintentionally ignores safety standards and puts others at risk. A negligent party can be required to pay damages to anyone hurt by their irresponsible actions.
For example, imagine that you traveled to your local grocery store the evening after a winter storm. As you walked through the parking lot to the entrance, you noticed that there were no lights to illuminate the area. There appeared to be some patches of snow still on the pavement, but you could not be sure. Just outside the store, you slipped on a patch of ice and fell heavily onto the curb. You suffered a concussion and a fractured wrist in the fall and now face high hospital bills, along with physical therapy. A skilled personal injury lawyer could help you determine whether any party was technically at fault for your accident. According to premises liability law, property managers have a responsibility to keep their area safe and free of hidden dangers. You might be able to secure financial compensation for your injuries from the store owners since they failed to illuminate the premises or clear the ice from their parking lot.
When you are seriously injured in an accident partially or entirely caused by someone else, you can have dozens of pressing concerns. We have put together a short list of some of the most common questions posed by our clients. Feel free to call us anytime at (248) 948-9696 with any other specific questions you might have. A skilled legal professional will be happy to cover questions concerning your specific case.
That depends on a variety of factors including the extent of your injuries, the level of negligence shown by the responsible party, and the costs associated with your injuries, including those expected for the future. The law allows victims to seek financial compensation for a wide variety of costs relating to their injury. You might be legally entitled to monetary recompense to cover things such as:
While nothing can truly make up for the trauma, pain, and stress you suffered because of the preventable accident, the law strives to make sure victims are not financially burdened by someone else’s terrible mistake.
A successful personal injury case can provide you with the money to cover some or all of the costs of your injury. If you have been injured in an accident resulting from someone else’s negligence, you might be legally entitled to this sort of financial compensation.
Some people avoid speaking with a personal injury attorney because they assume any legal case will take up too much of their time and money. Because of this general, widespread assumption, far too many individuals miss out on substantial monetary recompense. An open, honest attorney will be able to have a conversation with you about what you can expect from your personal injury case. Since we respect our clients’ time and value their welfare, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss the specifics of your case. Even if you decide not to pursue a personal injury lawsuit, it will always be in your best interest to speak with an attorney about your options and your rights.
While other firms may make a general claim to their knowledge of accident cases, our personal injury attorneys have substantial credentials to prove that our services are top-quality. For example, we have assisted over 25,000 Michigan families in the history of our firm. Our clients often refer others to us because our attorneys have such a large track record of securing the maximum damages possible for those we serve. We won $1,500,000 settlement with a silica supplier when they neglected to put a label on their product. Because of inadequate warning, an unsuspecting worker contracted silicosis. Our personal injury attorneys also secured $75,000 for a man who skipped in an icy parking lot and broke his ankle. A young man who was seriously injured because of a hidden road hazard received $18,000,000 in lifetime payments. These are just a few samples of the many legal victories we have won for our clients.
Additionally, we offer a completely free initial consultation, and our own fees are based on your legal success. If we cannot secure compensation for you, you do not pay us. We adopted this contingency fee model of service because it reflects how we put the client’s needs first and foremost.
A sudden injury can change your life forever. After an accident, you can feel absolutely overwhelmed.

If you or someone you love has been injured by someone else’s carelessness or recklessness, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
