Macomb Law Group, Personal Injury Attorneys in Metro Detroit
When you are seriously injured because of another person’s negligence, it can hurt your body, your bank accounts, and your pride. At Macomb Law Group we understand the effect a personal injury accident can have on a person, and his or her family, and we are here to help you be compensated for your loss.
Personal injury is a broad umbrella that also covers lawsuits for:
- Motor Vehicle Accidents
- Auto Insurance Claims
- Products Liability
- Wrongful Death
- Adult Foster Care (Group Home) Negligence
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Slip & Fall/ Premises Liability
- Dog Bite Injury
However, not all personal injury lawsuits fall into a neat category. If you have been injured because someone else failed to do something he or she reasonably should have done, you may have a personal injury lawsuit. When there is no easy label/name that applies to your injury, you need personal injury attorneys that can be creative and get you the recovery you deserve. At the Macomb Law Group, we aren’t limited by categories. We will work with you to identify potential negligence claims and recover your damages.
Slip & Fall/ Premises Liability
Slick tile, poorly lit stairs, and faulty construction can all lead to serious slip-&-fall personal injury lawsuits. Property owners are legally required to take reasonable steps to maintain their property and warn visitors, customers, and guests about hidden or unexpected dangers. When they fail, it can result in serious harm.
While Michigan premises liability law limits a property owner’s responsibility to protect you from open and obvious hazards like ice and snow, many injured plaintiffs are able to recover damages when they slip and fall due to poorly maintained premises. At Macomb Law Group, we know what it takes to win a slip & fall premises liability lawsuit. We’ll help you weigh your options and, when appropriate, prove your case in court.
Dog Bite Injury
When you are hurt by a person’s pet, the story is almost always the same. The dog “has never done that before” and “usually loves people.” However, Michigan law holds dog owners strictly liable for injuries caused in dog bite cases. If you have been bitten by a dog, or hurt by any other pet, our personal injury lawyers can help you recover from your injuries.
Personal Injury Compensation
The harm caused by a serious personal injury goes far beyond the doctors’ bills. Michigan negligence law allows for injured parties to collect economic damages – things you pay for or bills you owe – as well as non-economic damages like pain and suffering. Depending on the circumstances in your case you may recover:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Replacement services for household chores you can no longer do
- Property replacement costs
- Compensatory damages for other expenses incurred because of your injury
- Disability and disfigurement awards
- Loss of support or companionship
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages (in certain cases)
When to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney
Not every accident needs a lawyer involved. If your health insurance, home insurance, or other remedies can cover your losses, you may not need a lawsuit. When unpaid bills begin to add up, or you need compensation for uninsured injuries or damages, our skilled personal injury attorneys can help you find the recovery you need.
