  • My child suffers from Cerebral Palsy. Can CP worsen over time?

    Because Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a non-progressive health condition, it does not necessarily worsen over time.  However, there are some potential health issues and long-term concerns that may become pronounced as the child ages.

    These long term concerns include, but not limited to:

    • Flexibility and motor control problems that may become more restrictive for a child’s lifestyle
    • Problems with eyesight that may make school, driving, and other activities difficult
    • Cognitive and learning disabilities that can make schooling difficult to handle
    • Disability-related stress that can create significant emotional and behavioral problems

    Parents of children who suffer from brain damage as a result of CP or medical error on behalf of a doctor or other medical professional do have legal rights and may be able to receive compensation.  This often includes significant funds necessary to care for the child throughout their lifetime.

  • Who pays my medical bills after a Michigan hit and run motorcycle accident?

    You can get your medical bills paid after a Michigan hit and run motorcycle accident.  Every case is different, however if the motorcyclist had insurance on his/her motorcycle, and assuming the other vehicle involved in the hit and run was a motor vehicle, the motorcyclist could make a claim for medical expenses as part of his/her Michigan No Fault benefits.  If the hit and run owner and operator were never identified, the motorcyclist’s auto insurer would be first in priority to pay these benefits.  If the hit and run vehicle was not a motor vehicle (i.e., not a car or truck), the motorcyclist could make a claim for medical benefits pursuant to his/her own motorcycle insurance policy if he/she had medical payment coverage on his/her policy.

  • What are my rights if I was injured in a hit and run motorcycle accident?

    Victims injured in a hit and run motorcycle accident do have legal rights. If the motorcyclist had insurance on his/her motorcycle, and assuming the other vehicle involved in the hit and run was a motor vehicle, the motorcyclist could make a claim for Michigan No Fault benefits.  If the hit and run owner and operator were never identified, the motorcyclist’s auto insurer would be first in priority to pay these benefits, which include items such as medical expenses, medical mileage, attendant care, replacement services and wage loss.  If the motorcyclist did not have insurance on his/her motorcycle, he/she will not qualify for No Fault benefits.  If the hit and run vehicle was not a motor vehicle (i.e., not a car or truck), the motorcyclist could make a claim for medical benefits pursuant to his/her own motorcycle insurance policy if he/she had medical payment coverage on his/her policy.  Further, the motorcyclist could make a claim for “pain and suffering” compensation against his/her own motorcycle insurer pursuant to “uninsured motorist” coverage if such coverage is provided on their policy.
