In the blink of an eye, your life can change forever. An accident, caused by someone else, can result in you sustaining serious, even life-threatening injuries.
An Ann Arbor Injury Lawyer can fight for you to ensure that you obtain justice in your personal injury case. An Ann Arbor accident lawyer will strive tirelessly, and with compassion, to ensure that you obtain the compensation to which you are entitled in the aftermath of an accident.
Common Types of Accidents Caused by Negligence
The two most common types of accidents that result in personal injury in Michigan are automobile accidents and slip and fall cases. These two types of accidents constitute well over 50 percent of the incidents that result in personal injuries annually.
Defective products represent another category of accident that results in personal injuries. Food contamination and food-borne illness caused by negligent handling or preparation represent another type of accident resulting in injuries to innocent victims.
Obtain Complete Compensation in Your Accident Case
An injury attorney, like a member of the legal team at The Doan Law Office, is your best option when it comes to ensuring that you maximize compensation to which you are entitled in the aftermath of an accident. The types of compensation awarded in a personal injury case depends upon the unique facts and circumstances at hand.
With that noted, an injury attorney will fight to obtain compensation for you that includes recovery for:
pain and suffering
A skilled injury lawyer can assist you in not only obtaining suitable compensation for existing losses and injuries but also for those reasonably expected to be incurred in the future. This includes future medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost wages.
If your personal injury case ends up going to trial, a member of the team at The Doan Law Office employs crucial tactics designed to optimize compensation. This includes potentially seeking what are known as punitive damages. An injury lawyer will seek the payment of punitive damages in your case if the conduct of the third party who caused the accident in the first instance was particularly reckless. Punitive damages are awarded to not only compensate you but to serve as a type of punishment for the wrongdoer, because of particularly egregious conduct.
Understanding a Michigan Wrongful Death Case
If you have lost a family member due to the negligence of someone else, you may be in a position to pursue what is called a wrongful death lawsuit. A wrongful death lawsuit is a type of legal action brought by a surviving family member, when a person has been killed because of the negligence of a third party.
Examples of family members who may be in a position to bring a wrongful death lawsuit include a spouse, child, parent, or sibling. The type of recovery you may be entitled to obtain in the way of compensation depends on the circumstances of the case.
Examples of types of losses that may warrant compensation include:
loss of companionship
loss of consortium
last medical expenses
The types of compensation awarded depends on the nature of the relationship between you and a deceased loved one. For example, if your spouse was killed because of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to an award of compensation for loss of consortium.
Accident Attorney Legal Fees
The Doan Law Firm utilizes a contingency fee arrangement when it comes to your personal injury case. Through a contingency fee agreement with The Doan Law Firm, you pay no legal fees until an attorney from the firm obtains a settlement or judgment in your case in your favor. The fee is a percentage of funds recovered for you, an amount agreed to at the beginning of the course of representation in your case.
