COMMON PERSONAL INJURIES
Any accident can cause injury to a person’s body and emotions. Many factors will go into determining the severity of your injuries, including your age, health, and any pre-existing conditions. Our attorneys have helped people suffering from:
- Burns—first, second, or third-degree burns often require skin grafts and reconstructive surgery.
- Neck injuries—whiplash, pinched nerves, and fractures.
- Head injuries—concussions, intracranial hemorrhage, skull fracture, and severe traumatic brain injuries.
- Back injuries—sprains, strains, herniated discs, and pinched nerves.
- Spinal injuries—spinal fracture, spinal cord injury, or paralysis.
- Internal injuries—collapsed lung, organ damage, or heart contusion.
Accidents also cause emotional distress which can show up as depression, anxiety, irritability, anger, or post-traumatic stress disorder. The recovery process is grueling, and many accident victims are rehabbing their injuries a year or more later.
OUR CLIENTS SHOULD RECEIVE FAIR COMPENSATION
If you were injured negligently, then you should seek compensation for the full assortment of damages suffered. We regularly seek damages for:
- Medical care. Medical expenses are often considerable and include any money spent on ambulances, hospital visits, doctor visits, surgery, rehabilitation, prescription drugs, or other medical care. If you have suffered a permanent disability, you might seek future medical expenses.
- Lost income or lost wages. Accidents prevent many clients from returning to work. They should receive compensation to make up for this lost income and, if they suffered a permanent injury, receive money for loss of earning capacity.
- Property damage. Your vehicle might be damaged in an accident. Other property includes an iPhone or even your pet.
- Pain and suffering. Bodily injuries cause intense pain. Discomfort remains even if you are taking painkillers, and accident victims should receive compensation for their suffering.

VICTIMS FACE MANY HURDLES ON THEIR WAY TO JUSTICE
Receiving a settlement is not as simple as filling out a few forms and waiting to receive a check. For example, some accident victims need to establish fault before they can receive compensation. Essentially, this means the person or entity is responsible for the accident which injured you. Although Michigan requires no-fault car insurance, even car accident victims might sue for compensation, in which case they need to establish fault.
Michigan also recognizes comparative fault. Under this rule, a victim’s compensation will be reduced by their proportion of fault. As an example, a victim who is 40% at fault will only receive 60% of the compensation they otherwise would. If they are more at fault than all defendants, they are prohibited from receiving non-economic damages for things like pain and suffering.
An experienced attorney can help. At Groth & Associates, we understand how to collect and preserve evidence of an accident. We can interview witnesses or work with reconstruction experts to help visualize how you were hurt. We will identify whether the defendant failed to use reasonable care and present a compelling argument to the insurance company explaining why you deserve compensation for your injuries.
