Our Michigan car accident lawyers represent drivers and passengers who have suffered serious injuries in an accident. Unfortunately, a not so common injury suffered in a car accident is a stroke. This type of injury can occur due to a direct trauma to the head, a sudden acceleration or deceleration of the head, or when there is a hyperextension of the neck. A stroke caused by trauma can have life threatening implications and cause lifetime disability.
Our stroke injury lawyers understand that changes caused by this condition not only affect a person’s ability to care for them, but also can cause changes in personality which affects marriages, families, and friendships. Stroke injury patients are often unable to return to work and suffer a significant impairment of earnings and earning potential.
Damages in stroke injury cases from a car accident are often substantial, because they seek to compensate the injured person for the tremendous cost for their care and rehabilitation as well as, quite often, a lifetime of decreased earnings. Accident victims who have suffered stroke injuries generally can collect the following damages:
- Medical expenses including all hospital and doctors’ bills
- Attendant care services and Replacement Care Services
- Pain and suffering, including future pain and suffering & disability
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Reasonable value for loss of time and earning capacity
- Poor health or disability caused by the traumatic brain injury
- Aggravation of a pre-existing injury caused by the traumatic brain injury
It is essential that you select an attorney who is an expert in both car accident cases and stroke injuries.

We know how to counter these arguments and have our own team of highly qualified medical experts who can help prove and win your case.
