Michigan Personal Injury Lawsuits

Just what is a personal injury case?

Lawyers say that they do “personal injury cases” or “accident cases” or “wrongful death cases” and yet, I suspect that most people do not understand exactly what this means.

Whenever you are hurt by anyone’s negligence, including that of a professional or a builder or a manufacturer or a store merchant, you have a “personal injury” claim. Products liability (injury by harmful product), medical malpractice (injury by a doctor, hospital or other healthcare provider), and slip-and-fall (injury because someone did not take care of their property) are all subtypes of personal injury cases. We handle all types of these injury cases.

A personal injury, automobile accident, wrongful death, slip and fall, or dog bite case is any type of claim where a person has been injured or killed due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence.

If the only damage in your case is that your car got banged up, then you do not have a personal injury case – but you may have a property damage case. We do not handle property damage cases, but there are many lawyers who do so. If both you and your car have suffered an injury, then you have both a personal injury and a property damage claim. In those circumstances, either your insurance company or the negligent person’s insurance company will usually take care of the property damage claim.

If someone’s negligence causes the death of another person, then this is called a “wrongful death” claim. The laws of each state or jurisdiction differs significantly regarding what can be recovered in a wrongful death case. You need an attorney who understands the specialized wrongful death laws.

Hiring the best lawyer for your case is an extremely important decision. In fact, it is the most important decision that you will make on your case. A number of factors should be considered before you hire an attorney and you should know the right reasons to pick the lawyer or law firm for your case.
