Auto Accident Lawsuits
Whether you are in an accident involving a semi-truck, car, commercial vehicle, while on your motorcycle, or as a pedestrian crossing the street, we have you covered during this stressful time. What most people do not know, or realize, is that regardless of how negligent the person was (i.e. drunk driving, distracted driving), Michigan has a threshold for successfully bringing, what is called, a Third Party lawsuit against the responsible parties that caused your accident. In order to meet the threshold, a person must have suffered a permanent disfigurement, a traumatic brain injury or a serious impairment of an important body function that limits your ability to live your life as you did before the accident. This is why it is important to get the proper medical care and determine what all your injuries are from your accident. Macomb Law Group attorneys are experienced at working with nurse case managers, something you should have, to make sure we understand the extent of your injuries and treatment. Once we know the extent of your injuries and any long term treatment, upcoming surgeries, therapies, etc. we will prepare and file your lawsuit
Truck Accident Litigation
When a motor vehicle accident includes a semi-truck, tractor-trailer, or other commercial vehicle, you need a lawyer with in-depth knowledge about federal and Michigan truck regulations. In truck accident litigation, success often hangs on a careful review of the truck driver’s maintenance and travel logs. When these logs are missing, or if they show violations of the laws controlling truck drivers, your truck accident attorneys can use those violations to prove negligence and get you Third Party damages for your serious injuries.
Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
As cell phones have become more prevalent in society, and are used for more than just phone calls, accidents involving motorcycles have also increased. If you are a biker you have probably experienced first hand the increase in drivers simply not paying attention and have had close calls because of it. Motorcycle accidents can often be the most severe and life-threatening. When drivers are not paying attention a serious motorcycle crash is often the result. When that happens, you need motorcycle accident attorneys who know the law that applies to your case. At Macomb Law Group, our experienced attorneys will be with you every step of the way through your care and recovery and will fight to get you compensated and help you get your life back in order.
Pedestrian and Bicycle Injury Accidents
Pedestrian and bicycle accidents can often result in severe, or even fatal injuries. When someone who is walking, jogging, rollerblading, skateboarding or riding a bicycle, is hit by a car, truck or bus, many times the negligent driver points the finger at the pedestrian for jaywalking or doing something else wrong to cause the accident. Macomb Law Group’s experienced attorneys are used to fighting this argument and successfully fighting to get you the compensation you are entitled to for your injuries.
