Compensation Available in Commerce Township Personal Injury Claims

You Shouldn’t Suffer Because of Someone Else’s Negligence

Whoever caused your injuries should be responsible for what you have been through. It should be that simple, but insurance companies and at-fault defendants will rarely make it that easy for you when you’re on your own. They will try to deny coverage or minimize what they owe just to save some money.

Our Commerce Township personal injury attorneys will not let this kind of treatment stand. We will fight for the damages you truly deserve. If you should win $2 million in compensation, we will fight for $2 million in compensation. We do not tire and will always seek optimal results in your case.

The personal injury attorneys at Goodman Acker will help you seek damages for:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Therapy costs and rehabilitation services costs
  • Lost income, lost wages, and lost future earning capacity
  • Property damages caused by the accident
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Damages associated with wrongful death

How to Prove Negligence in a Commerce Township Personal Injury Claim

Winning a personal injury claim means providing the right evidence and proving a defendant’s negligence. Negligence is a legal concept on which most Commerce Township personal injury cases rely. It requires some wrongdoing on the defendant’s part and proof of certain elements.

There are four primary elements used to prove negligence in Commerce Township:

  1. Duty of Care: The defendant owed some duty to you to avoid causing harm.
  2. Defendant Breached the Duty: The defendant committed some act or omission that breached their duty of care.
  3. Proximate Cause: The acts or commissions of the defendant proximately caused your injuries.
  4. Damages: You suffered injuries and emotional harm as a result of the defendant’s breach.

Our personal injury lawyers in Commerce Township can analyze the facts of your case to prove each of these elements when present. Once we do, we know how to pursue the financial compensation you are owed.

FAQs About Commerce Township Personal Injury Cases

Frequent Questions for Personal Injury Lawyers in Commerce Township

Here are a few of the most common questions and answers that you might have for a Commerce Township personal injury lawyer:

Does my case always have to go to court?

When you work with a Commerce Township personal injury lawyer, this does not necessarily mean your case must be filed with the court. Many cases only proceed to trial when the defendant or an insurance company refuses to give you the compensation you are fairly owed. A trial is a last resort to hold these parties accountable. Negotiations and other strategies often give you significant compensation without the need to go to trial.

How much will I win for my personal injury case?

There is no way to answer this question without knowing the details of your case, but that is why our Commerce Township personal injury attorneys offer free consultations on your claim. We can analyze the facts of your case, your injuries, and more to help determine what your case could be worth to you. We provide an honest feedback process, so you feel confident in our approach.

What should I do after an accident in Commerce Township?

Immediately following an accident, get medical attention. Your health is the most important thing, but any medical treatment also documents what you have suffered. You should also, when possible, take photos or videos of your injuries and property damage. Make sure to collect contact information from witnesses and file a police report about the accident. You should also speak with a Commerce Township personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to avoid any problems with time limits for filing your claim.

How long do I have to file my personal injury claim?

Michigan has a three-year statute of limitations for most types of personal injury cases. Medical malpractice claims have a two-year statute of limitations, however. You must file by these deadlines, or your case could be dismissed, regardless of whether you would otherwise be successful.

What if I was partially at fault for my accident?

Even cases where you were partially at fault can be compensable under Michigan law. Michigan follows a comparative fault analysis in determining how this affects your claim. Your damages may be reduced by the percentage of fault attributable to you, but this does not necessarily negate the damages you are owed.
