Compensation For Serious & Catastrophic Personal Injuries

Serious injuries can be expensive and debilitating. While most auto drivers, employers and manufacturers have liability coverage, insurers aren't always willing to settle a claim for an amount proportional to the financial impact of an injury.

At THE WOLF LAW FIRM, our attorneys work closely with accident reconstruction experts, and with medical economists and experienced life care planners to quantify the cost of a serious injury or fatality. Working from established cost data maintained by HMOs and the insurance industry itself, we take into account costs associated with surgery, medical equipment, physical therapy, in-home nursing care, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

If you have been seriously injured or have lost a family member in a fatal accident or explosion/fire, or an automated/automatic door malfunction, contact personal injury attorneys at THE WOLF LAW FIRM today to schedule an appointment to discuss your case.

Common Causes Of Serious Injuries And Wrongful Death In Michigan

Liability for serious injuries is often disputed, especially in cases involving explosions, auto/truck accidents and dog bites. At THE WOLF LAW FIRM, our attorneys work with accident investigators, forensic specialists and medical experts in determining how an accident happened and how it resulted in our client's injuries.

Trucking accidents — In trucking accidents, we review a driver's log book to see if he exceeded the maximum allowable drive time, measure skid marks to determine if a trucker was speeding and check GPS data to see if driver fatigue was involved.

Motor vehicle accidents — In car accidents, motorcycle accidents and pedestrian knockdowns, we review "black box" data, evaluate the placement of debris, interview witnesses and recreate what happened based on the available evidence. When traffic camera footage is available, we review it as well, in order to determine who was the at-fault driver.

Automatic/automated door injury — In malfunctioning automatic/automated door cases, people do not realize that there are hidden sensors that are supposed to prevent accidental openings and closings that may cause severe injury. We retain special engineering experts familiar with the "automatic-door" industry, who are able to determine defective components or failure of owners/operators to conduct regular inspections. No longer are automatic or automated doors an unusual gateway for entering or exiting local businesses and residential facilities. Automatic/automated doors have become a regular part of our lives similar to escalators and elevators, which may also result in serious injury due to negligence or defective parts.

Dog bite cases — In dog bite cases, Michigan may hold the owner of a dog strictly liable for attacks on people who are lawfully on a dog owner's property. In dog bite cases involving young children, the law typically decides in favor of children younger than 6 who wander onto a dog owner's property.
