Detroit prides itself for being known as the Motor City. Unfortunately, it is also known for its high rate of auto accidents. In 2018 alone, there were more than 312,000 car/truck accidents and 55,000 injuries sustained. And drivers have only become more distracted than ever in the years since.
As anyone who has been involved in one can tell you, a serious car accident will turn your world upside down in an instant. You’re likely scared, uncertain, and at least a little bit angry. More likely than not, you’re worried about how you will pay all of your medical bills, get back to work, or learn how to live your new life with the injuries you sustained. That’s a lot of uncertainty and fear to be straddled with so suddenly. But you’re not alone.

Our Experience. Your Story.
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 a 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—the first step to making things right and getting the justice you deserve.
Truck Accident Litigation
When a motor vehicle accident involves 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 compensated for your serious injuries.
Truck accident litigation is more nuanced than most victims realize. That’s why we at Macomb Law Group have chosen to specialize in this unique and narrow area of personal injury law. Let’s hear your story, and we’ll tell you what your rights are.
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. What happens when a close call no longer remains “close” and actually results in a serious injury or accident?
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. And when a biker is involved in a serious crash, the results are severe and often life-altering (or even fatal).
When a tragedy like this happens to you, you need motorcycle accident attorneys who knows the law that applies to your case. At Macomb Law Group, our experienced attorneys will be with you every step of the way throughout your care and road to recovery. We truly care about what happened to you and will fight to get you compensated so that you can begin to 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.
That blame shifting is often wrong and misplaced. Let’s make it right. Macomb Law Group’s experienced attorneys are used to fighting against these false arguments and successfully working with victims like you to get you the compensation you are entitled to for your injuries.
Let’s Talk. We’ll Listen.
