As a result of Michigan's no-fault system, if you have been in a car, truck, motorcycle, or boat accident you can recover payment for your lost wages, medical bills, and property damage. However, if you want to recover pain and suffering you will have to make a claim against the third party responsible for your auto accident. Our auto accident attorneys have experience preparing your case to maximize
your recovery.


People are often under the misconception that truck accidents are mainly caused by truck drivers. In reality, other drivers making regrettable decisions when driving around trucks often cause these accidents. This includes cutting trucks off, tailgating trucks and even traveling in blind spots.Unfortunately, the public often view trucks as a nuisance on the road instead of important contribution
to the economy.


Injuries can occur in many professions. But it is unfortunate that they are more prevalent in the construction industry. This is because of the work’s dangerous nature.  As is the case with workers in other industries who get injured on the job, injured construction employees are eligible for workers' compensation coverage while they recuperate.
