Personal Injury FAQ

  • Why should I hire a personal injury lawyer?

    You should hire a personal injury attorney if you have been in an accident and your insurance (or the insurance of the party liable for your accident) does not cover the cost of your medical and other accident related expenses. Insurance companies can’t—or won't—always cover the high costs of medical treatment, especially when it comes to very serious or permanent injuries. Therefore, you will have to file a personal injury lawsuit in order to collect the funds needed to recover. We offer free consultations, so if you are unsure whether your situation requires legal help, we can help you figure that out at no cost to you.

  • What am I entitled to receive compensation for in a personal injury lawsuit?

    Every personal injury claim is different, but generally accident victims are eligible to receive compensation for their accident related medical expenses (both past and future), lost wages from time taken off work, and any physical pain or mental anguish suffered as a result of the accident. These are referred to as “damages.”

  • Is there a deadline for filing a personal injury claim in Michigan?

    The statute of limitations (or time limit) for filing a personal injury claim in Michigan is three years from the date of your accident.

  • How much does it cost to hire a personal injury attorney?

    Like most personal injury firms, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means that instead of our clients paying us directly, our fee comes out of the settlement you receive upon successful completion of your case. It also means that if we don’t win your case, you don’t owe us anything. All payment details will be discussed and decided before we start to work on your case.

How We Go Above & Beyond

We are proud to offer our clients comprehensive care and legal help during their times of need. Our team of attorneys is both compassionate and aggressive when it comes to getting you the fair and just compensation you deserve. We will be there for you 24/7 throughout the duration of you case to provide guidance and peace of mind while also tenaciously pursuing damages from the person or company responsible for your injuries.
