Personal Injury Compensation in Detroit 

One of the first questions an injury victim might have is: how much is my case worth? There is no way to calculate or determine your case value without a thorough evaluation of your injuries and circumstances. Each case is unique and requires an individual assessment.

We will consider factors such as the facts of what happened, the type of negligence involved, and the nature and severity of your injuries. For example, if you suffer a permanent injury, you may deserve more compensation because your expenses and the effects of your injuries might be ongoing.

Some of the specific damages you can recover include:

  • Medical bills 
  • Lost income 
  • Loss of enjoyment of life 
  • Emotional distress 
  • Loss of consortium or interpersonal relationship 
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Disability or disfigurement 
  • Wrongful death damages for surviving family 

An accurate calculation of your losses is essential to the success of your claim and your financial future. You cannot trust insurance companies to provide an accurate assessment, as they want to minimize settlements whenever possible.

TopDog Law has resources and professionals we can consult to help determine your past, future, and intangible losses and include everything in your claim. We are looking for every penny that you deserve to recover.

Accidents are Common Throughout Detroit

Personal injury law is broad, and qualified injuries happen in many ways.

A shocking amount of injury accidents happen in Detroit and the surrounding areas. For Michigan residents between one and 44, personal injury is the leading cause of disability and death, according to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. The causes of such injuries include falls, traffic accidents, and much more.

Detroit particularly has a high risk of traffic accidents.

Some of the more dangerous streets and intersections where accidents often happen include:

  • 11 mile road/I-696 
  • Schoolcraft Road at Telegraph Road 
  • U.S. 131 at Wealthy Street 
  • Martin Parkway at N. Pontiac Trail 
  • The 12-mile road at I-94  
  • Southfield Road at 11-mile road 
  • 10-mile road at I-94 Burton Street SW at US 131 
  • Middlebelt Road at Schoolcraft Road 
  • Seven Mile Road at I-75 
  • State Road at Ellsworth Road 
  • Farmington Road at West Maple Road 
  • Hall Road at Schoenherr Road

Medical malpractice is another common cause of preventable injuries for which someone else should be liable. Medical negligence can occur in any healthcare setting, including Detroit Medical Centers, The Karmanos Cancer Center, Henry Ford Hospital, and more.

Also common are slips and falls and other property-related accidents.

These might happen in places like:

  • Meijer or Kroger stores
  • Walmart
  • Costco or Sam’s 
  • Hotels
  • Sports arenas
  • Concert venues
  • Restaurants
  • Twelve Oaks Mall

No matter how or where your injury happens, what you do afterward can be highly important. You should immediately seek medical attention and obtain a full diagnosis of your injuries. Then, reach out to TopDog Law to set up your free consultation with a Detroit personal injury lawyer.

TopDog Law Personal Injury Practice Areas 

Personal injuries can happen in many ways. You are going through your day, and suddenly, someone is reckless, negligent, or careless, and now you have an injury. 

Our personal injury attorneys in Detroit handle a plethora of various types of cases, including:

  • Car accidents: The most common type of personal injury case happens when drivers are careless and cause an accident. Michigan State Police reported 219 deaths and over 16,000 injuries in the county in a recent year.  
  • Truck accidents: Commercial truck drivers and their employers are responsible for ensuring safe driving. If they cause an accident, they should cover your damages. 
  • Slip and falls: These accidents fall under premises liability law, which holds property owners to a specific duty of care to visitors or customers. If you slip and fall, they might be liable for your losses.  
  • Wrongful death: You may lose a loved one in a severe accident, and families can take legal action and fight for compensation for this tragic loss.
  • Medical malpractice: These injuries happen when a medical professional does not provide acceptable care and causes harm. These mistakes can occur during any interaction with a provider, such as in an operating room, doctor’s office, dentist’s office, or emergency room.  
  • Sexual abuse: Mistreatment, molestation, and sexual trauma can happen in many scenarios and lead to serious mental and physical injuries. These cases are often complex as they can involve both the civil and criminal justice systems.  
  • Workplace injuries: When you suffer an injury on the job, you might be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits and potential additional compensation in a third-party negligence claim. 

Investigating how your accident happened allows our Detroit personal injury attorneys to determine who should be liable. This may include other individuals, corporations, or other entities. The claim will also involve the insurance providers of any liable parties.

The way the accident occurred also commonly affects the injuries you suffer. Some injuries heal with treatment, while some victims never fully recover. At TopDog Law, we take all injuries and resulting expenses seriously, as even relatively minor injuries can be costly. We also have the experience and resources to handle claims involving catastrophic injuries.

Some common injuries our clients have include:

  • Facial injuries 
  • Broken bones
  • Head trauma 
  • Burns 
  • Traumatic brain injuries 
  • Loss of function like eyesight or hearing 
  • Spinal cord injuries 
  • Lacerations 
  • Internal bleeding 
  • Amputations 
  • Electrocution 
  • Internal organ damage 

TopDog Law understands how difficult it can be to suffer an injury that impacts your daily life. Focus on your treatment and healing while our personal injury lawyer in Detroit focuses on recovering the compensation you deserve.

The insurance agent finalizes the agreement, and both client and agent sign the contract, sealing the deal with a handshake.

Dealing With the Insurance Company 

When in an accident, many people expect and assume that the insurance company will pay a fair settlement for a valid claim. The truth is that the insurance company seldom offers to pay the full amount you deserve.

The higher the payout, the smaller their profits, and these companies often prioritize their bottom lines and shareholders over injured claimants.

There are some important things to remember regarding the insurance company liable for your injuries:

  • Adjusters want to ask you questions, get you talking, and even request a recorded statement. Cooperating might seem necessary to proceed with your claim, but it can actually jeopardize your claim in many situations. It is all too easy to say something the adjuster can twist or misinterpret to challenge your claim. Allow your attorney to handle all communications to protect yourself.
  • Insurance companies do not want you to hire a personal injury attorney. An adjuster might state it is an unnecessary step, making it seem like they are simplifying the process for you. However, they know that unrepresented claimants regularly accept much less compensation. Further, the prospect of possible litigation is often not a realistic concern if you do not have a lawyer handling your claim. Do not believe them; hire a personal injury lawyer before the claim process begins.
  • Insurers use many tactics to get you to accept a settlement offer that does not cover your losses. You might initially believe the offer seems attractive, only to later realize it is grossly inadequate. You cannot seek additional compensation at that stage. Never accept a quick offer or allow claim delays to coerce you into accepting the next offer. Instead, have our attorneys handle your claim. Insurance adjusters cannot use the same tactics on experienced legal professionals as they might use to create obstacles for you. 

When you have injuries, the last thing you need is additional concerns about untrustworthy insurance companies. Let TopDog Law take on the insurers for you.
