A Look at Michigan Law Regarding Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury lawsuits are typically rooted in claims against negligent parties that cause physical injuries. The goal of filing these types of claims is to recover both economic and non-economic losses resulting from the experience of sustaining serious injuries. Economic losses typically are medical bills, lost wages, and services an injured party may require. Non-economic losses are associated with pain, suffering, disability, and disfigurement that may result from an injury.

Many personal injury cases are rooted in negligence. Negligence claims generally have four elements, which are important for every client to understand. The four elements of negligence that are used to determine liability in Michigan are:

  • Did the defendant owe a duty of care to the plaintiff?
  • Did the defendant’s action, or inaction, constitute a breach of that duty?
  • Were the defendant’s actions the cause of the injuries the plaintiff sustained?
  • As a result, did the plaintiff suffer damages that deserve compensation from the defendant?

Now each case is unique, therefore it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side. If you’ve been injured, it’s important to contact us as soon as possible to ensure your rights are protected.

It is not advisable to speak with an insurance adjuster until your case has been reviewed by an attorney of your choosing. The insurance adjusters are generally trying to collect information that would benefit their client.

If someone else is responsible for causing you physical harm, you can still file a claim and receive damages even if you had a pre-existing condition. Working with a reliable personal injury attorney will help navigate the complexities of these types of cases.
