Tough Legal Skills. Tender Compassion.
We know accidents and injuries disrupt lives. That’s why our attorneys use everything in our power to restore your quality of life. If you’ve been seriously injured or lost a loved one in an accident, we are ready to help you. We have the grit, resources and intelligence to fight for justice: we’re experienced, we’re caring, and we stand by you every step of the way.
Brave Enough to Tackle the Giants
We have top skills and deep resources to fight and win against the biggest insurance companies, richest corporations, and largest hospitals. Whoever the opponent, we work to get the highest possible financial compensation for your claim. We fight hard, we win big, and we do it every day.
Experts on Staff for Fast Justice
Our lawyers are ready at all times to find the evidence, prove the facts, and prepare the winning case. We use a team of top private investigators, accident reconstruction experts, and medical-legal researchers. Our in-house staff even includes a medical doctor who is also a practicing attorney!
No Charge Unless We Win Money for You
All of our personal injury and medical malpractice cases are taken on a “contingency fee” basis. That means there is no legal fee until and unless we successfully settle your claim or win a trial verdict that results in financial compensation for your injuries.
The Deck is Stacked Against You
Most drivers, hospitals, and businesses carry insurance policies that cover them when their negligence injures someone. However, when their insurance company finds out their client is at fault, they often offer the injured victim a settlement that is only a small fraction of what they actually deserve. Big companies keep high-powered attorneys on staff just to make sure they pay out as little as possible to victims. Remember, insurance companies are businesses, and businesses exist to make money. The less money for you, the more for them.
Timing is Everything
Many claims fall under a “statute of limitations.” That means there are strict time limitations for filing certain claims. For example, you can file a claim for No-Fault benefits so that lost wages or medical benefits will be paid by the insurance company. But only a Michigan attorney who specializes in such cases can tell you that they must be submitted within one year of your accident in the state of Michigan. Don’t waste time for justice. Get what is owed to you before time runs out.
It Takes a David To Fight a Goliath
If you’ve been injured, you need an expert on your side to make sure you receive the full financial compensation you are legally entitled to. We have the skill, grit and determination to get the justice you deserve. Without an experienced Michigan lawyer representing you, no insurance company, even your own, will voluntarily agree to pay what you are actually entitled to for doctor bills, lost wages, or pain and suffering. Get what you deserve.
If you’ve been injured in any type of motor vehicle accident, personal injury, medical malpractice, childhood injury or any other accident contact us immediately. Our Michigan lawyers will investigate any injury case with no charge or legal fees unless and until we win money for you. Remember, at Goodwin & Scieszka we fight for you.
