What Is Your West Bloomfield Injury Case Worth?

The amount of compensation you qualify for depends on the answers to the following questions:

  • Did the at-fault party demonstrate clear negligence in the time leading up to the accident?
  • Did this act of negligence lead directly to your accident?
  • What kinds of injuries and losses did you sustain in the accident?
  • For how long and in what ways will your injuries continue to impact your life and the lives of your loved ones?

We enable clients to answer these questions. Then we fight for every dollar you qualify for, including:

Non-economic Damages for Personal Injuries

Non-economic damages reflect the physical and psychological pain caused by the accident. They are just as important as—if not more important than—the money that the crash has cost you. We will seek compensation for you based on your:

Economic Damages for Personal Injuries

Even if you have car insurance and health insurance, you may still find yourself struggling to pay all of the bills your accident has generated. The damages we seek for you will help you cover:

  • Medical expenses not covered by your policies
  • Any other bills related to the crash, such as having to hire a housecleaner, a landscaper, or a babysitter to handle your usual chores
  • The loss of income and job benefits you suffered when your injured prevented (or will prevent) you from going to work

Damages for Personal Injuries that Lead to Wrongful Deaths

If your loved one did not survive their injuries, we are sorry for your loss. We realize that monetary compensation can never take the place of your loved one, but it can give you the opportunity to focus on processing your grief rather than worrying about:

  • Paying for the funeral and other end-of-life expenses
  • Supporting your dependents without your loved one’s income
  • How you will get additional compensation for the loss of your loved one’s presence and guidance, which can give you more time to grieve and to find a new path forward

Every Single Loss You Incurred in West Bloomfield

Christensen Law understands that every case is different and that every client has their own priorities and goals. By allowing you ample time to explain your situation and putting your needs first, we fight to ensure that:

  • The at-fault party pays you a fair and just settlement for everything they took away from you
  • You have enough money to cover your losses and do not run out of money while you still need assistance
  • The party who caused your injury has to pay for their negligence

Our case results, which include multiple record-breaking outcomes, prove that we are serious about preserving our clients’ futures by getting them the money they deserve.

Putting the Personal Injury Client’s Needs First

We believe that a key part of fighting any case is to give top priority to the client’s story, goals, and wants. One of the first things we do for any client is to give them ample time and space to share their experiences with us. Our team will always listen closely and make sure we understand every word.

Throughout the process, we continue to solicit the client’s feedback and thoughts, and we help them make key decisions, such as when to settle. We do not just fight your case with diligence and integrity: we are here to support you during a difficult moment.

We Handle Many Kinds of Personal Injury Cases in West Bloomfield

Christensen Law has experience with a wide variety of personal injury cases, including:

  • Car collisions, commercial truck accidents, and motorcycle crashes
  • Other kinds of traffic accidents, such as pedestrian crashes or bicycle crashes
  • Construction accidents, including falls from heights or machinery-related incidents
  • Slip and fall accidents, where you fell on someone else’s poorly maintained property
  • Boating accidents, where a boat crashes into another vehicle or into a dock or marina

We invite you to tell us how your accident happened so we can start figuring out the best way to protect you.

How Do These Personal Injury Cases Differ?

Depending on how you were injured, you might face different obstacles on the way to recovering compensation from the at-fault party. For instance:

  • In car accident cases, you first have to exhaust the funds from your No-Fault insurance policy before you can file a lawsuit.
  • Construction accident survivors can only pursue personal injury lawsuits in specific scenarios.
  • In cases where you were injured by someone who was on the job at the time (e.g., a delivery truck driver), there is a question of whether you can sue their employer.
  • In all cases, there is the possibility that more than one party contributed to your suffering. If that is your situation, you will want to find that out so you can sue multiple parties and determine how much each of them owes you.

We are ready and willing to assist clients who face these and many other dilemmas.

When to Begin Your West Bloomfield Personal Injury Case

It is always best to start legal action as quickly as you can, usually soon after your first round of care or when you are stable. Even if you have not completely healed or finished your medical treatment, it is not too early to explore your legal rights and options. This is because:

Michigan Law Limits Your Chances of Receiving Compensation

You have a short length of time to seek damages under state law, found at Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. § 600.5805, which says that you must begin your case within three years of the accident.

Missing this deadline could have grave consequences for your case: the court might reject your lawsuit, and you would have no way of getting money from the at-fault party. We do not want this to happen to you. We encourage you to get started right away.

Personal Injury Evidence Is Impermanent

Many of the materials we rely on to build cases do not last forever. Certain documents may be deleted, lost, or misplaced, while the recollections of people who witnessed or were involved in the event may blur over time.

By collecting evidence promptly after an accident, we have a much better chance of finding information that is fresh, relevant, and reliable. This, in turn, can make it easier to convince the insurance company to pay what you ask for.

Your Family Deserves Prompt Personal Injury Compensation

Legal actions can take months or years to complete. The sooner you begin, the sooner we will come up with a sound strategy for pursuing the money you need and deserve. Once we get that money for you, you will be able to rest much easier, knowing that justice has been served and that your family is provided for.
