Detroit is known across the country for many things, such as the Tigers and Lions fields and the roaring crowds that cheer them on, and 8 Mile Road was made famous by music star Eminem. It’s also home to several other well-known artists such as Kid Rock, Aretha Franklin, and Madonna. Detroit also has the second-largest theater district in the country and is connected to Canada via the Windsor Tunnel.

One thing that you may not know about Detroit is that it’s home to the Goodman Acker Law Firm that offers a team of highly trained attorneys that are ready to serve you in all of your legal needs. If you’ve been searching for a lawyer, you might find some of the answers to your questions below.

Personal Injury Lawyer

Sometimes accidents happen, and they’re simply an accident. Other times, accidents occur due to someone else’s negligence, failure to be aware of their surroundings, or follow laws. If you’ve been injured in an accident, including automobile or bicycle accidents, then Goodman Acker may be able to help you.

These types of accidents can result in missed days at work, resulting in lost wages, sometimes even the loss of your job. If you’ve been severely injured, you might have thousands of dollars of medical expenses racking up with no idea how you’re going to pay for them. General damages, such as pain and suffering, may also be awarded if the individual at fault was under the influence of drugs or alcohol while behind the wheel, thus causing the accident.

You don’t have to suffer or bear the weight of these damages alone. You can contact our experienced law team to see if filing a personal injury claim can help you. If so, we can get you the compensation you deserve and help you get back on your feet.

New Michigan No-Fault Law

As of July 2020, Michigan has passed a new no-fault law that impacts drivers, insurance companies, and those injured in vehicle accidents. Being aware of how these laws will impact you if you’re injured in an automobile accident is important. This new no-fault law means that all drivers are now required to purchase basic coverages that pay for expenses if an accident occurs. Our team of attorneys believes that everyone should be aware of new laws and regulations that can impact their claims’ legitimacy and end result.

Medical Malpractice Lawyer

If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of the negligence of a medical provider, you may have a medical malpractice claim. If a loved one has died due to this negligence, you may also have grounds to file a wrongful death claim. In fighting personal injury or wrongful death cases, it’s important to have a knowledgeable law team handling it for you.

Some examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Birth injuries: Both mothers and babies are fragile during the birthing process. Failure of hospital staff to provide proper monitoring or respond when a potential issue occurs can result in lifelong problems.
  • Drug errors: All too often, patients are given the wrong medication. Whether it be a dosing error or a medication that interacts with another medication the patient is already on, these mistakes can be extremely harmful.
  • Mistakes in diagnosing a condition: Certain medical conditions can be difficult to diagnose. Sometimes this misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a condition at all is simply a result of negligence. These mistakes can cause worsening of symptoms, treatment delays, improper treatment, or even death. If you can prove that your misdiagnosis or delayed treatment were caused by negligence, you may have a claim.

What Other Types of Cases Do We Handle?

In addition to personal injury and medical malpractice cases, we handle other types of cases as well. These include:

  • Workers’ compensation: Injuries on the job are covered by the law, and if your employer refuses to pay, you might be eligible to file a personal injury claim.
  • Short- and long-term disability: If you’ve sustained an injury and have been denied for disability, we may be able to help you through the appeals process.
  • Nursing home abuse: Nursing home residents who have suffered injuries or death due to their care received may be able to file a claim.
  • Social Security disability: We have handled claims regarding spine injuries, traumatic brain injuries, chronic diseases, and severe mental health issues that interfere with your ability to work.
  • Dog bites: Serious injury, along with pain and suffering, can result from a bite from a dog.
  • VA Benefits claims: If the VA has denied your benefits, you may have cause for a claim.
