Personal Injury Attorneys You Can Trust

Our team of professional personal injury attorneys at Goodman Acker understands the impact that an injury from an accident can have on you. Recovery can take weeks or months, and sometimes even years. You might be dealing with physical pain and stress, and guilt from being unable to work.  Insurance companies are probably calling wanting to settle, the hospitals may want to be paid, and you might still be fighting through the pain in order to make it through the day. If these scenarios sound familiar, you might benefit from contacting a personal injury attorney.

Don’t wait to get the help that you need. Goodman Acker offers a risk-free, no-obligation consultation so we can review your case with you to see if we may be able to help. No matter the circumstances surrounding your injury, you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence. Having the right attorney on your side will help get you a fair settlement so that you can move on with your life.

What Types of Personal Injury Cases Do You Handle?

If you’ve been injured in an accident, especially one that could’ve been avoided, then you may be looking for a personal injury attorney. Our team has handled various types of cases and won. Some have even been awarded multi-million dollar settlements. Below are some of the types of personal injury cases that we’ve handled in the past:

  • Auto accidents: In Michigan alone, there are over 270,000 car accidents annually, with many resulting in injuries.
  • Trucking accidents: These types of accidents involve trucks over 10,000 pounds and often result in severe damages and injuries.
  • Medical malpractice: If you’ve been wrongfully diagnosed and injured as the result of a healthcare provider’s negligence, then you might be eligible to file a claim.
  • Dog bites: Being the victim of a dog bite can be frightening. Even well trained, trusted dogs can injure someone by biting them.
  • Slip and fall accidents: When it comes to proving who was negligent in a slip and fall case, the case can get complicated. Therefore, hiring an attorney is in your best interest.

How Does the Personal Injury Claim Process Work?

Another one of the major questions we get is how the personal injury claim process works. While some claims can be settled in a matter of weeks, some more in-depth cases take longer depending on damages, complications, and other parties. When it comes to the claims process, there are a few steps that we have to take.

If you decide to use one of our attorneys to represent you, we have to investigate what happened during your accident. We also have to provide the courts with proof that the other party was at fault with accident reports if your injury was caused during an automobile accident, medical records for a medical malpractice case, and so on. If you haven’t already, you need to receive medical treatment for your injuries. Remember that we’ll be fighting to get your bills paid for you.

Negotiations that take place prior to a suit being filed may be acceptable. Our attorneys can advise you whether or not the amount offered  is adequate. If not, we will go ahead and file your lawsuit to get you a settlement that we think is fair. Any evidence then goes into what is called a discovery process. The discovery process allows both parties to enter all of their relevant information.

During mediation, a panel submits an amount that they have agreed upon for a settlement. This amount should be fair to you as well as accepted by the other side. If your case has still not been settled, it then proceeds to a trial. The majority of cases are settled before this happens, but some cases still go to trial. During the trial, your case is heard in a courtroom, and a settlement is reached there.
