Our Personal Injury Lawyers Fight for Your Rights
Unfortunately, personal injuries happen. A lot.
In Michigan alone, thousands of residents suffer injuries due to someone else's negligence, whether intentional or not. Of course, personal injury lawyers have a passion for helping victims of these types of accidents.
Our help goes beyond just the physical injuries associated with these events. While personal injury lawsuits help victims (or plaintiffs) who suffer physical injuries, we understand that the damage doesn’t stop there. We believe the compensation shouldn’t stop there, either. Our personal injury lawyers have witnessed first hand how people’s lives are disrupted: missed work, extra medical bills, post-traumatic shock, and more can plague those affected by wrongful injuries. Emotional, mental, and financial issues are often involved and can be an additional burden.
Let’s take a situation where someone is hit by a driver who is using a cell phone. Not only may the accident victim sustain pain from physical injuries, but they may also experience financial difficulties related to hospital bills and other expenses. It’s also common that emotional issues arise as a result of an accident, which may require time off from normal activities, along with professional help, for the victim to recover or to regain at least some lost function.
Tragically, some victims die in accidents, and their families are left struggling with grief, which makes it difficult to manage practical matters, such as multiple expenses associated with the accident. We can help determine whether the family can claim damages by filing a wrongful death claim. For family members connected with a wrongful death in Michigan, we may be able to help them obtain compensation for other real losses as well—including lost income, loss of help (such as transportation), loss of companionship, and medical and funeral expenses. In times of tragedy, it’s helpful to have compassionate professionals standing with you who can help and truly care, like our personal injury lawyers at Whiting Law.
