Compensation For Serious And Catastrophic Personal Injuries
Serious injuries can financially devastate the injury victim. 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. That is where the experienced staff at THE WOLF LAW FIRM can help. Our lawyers work diligently to determine accident liability and recover fair compensation.
Using An Investigative Approach To Determine Liability
Liability for serious injuries is often disputed, especially in cases involving explosions, auto/truck accidents and dog bites. 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. We seek maximum compensation for injury victims using hard financial evidence. We work closely with accident reconstruction experts, medical economists and experienced life care planners to quantify the cost of a serious injury or fatality.
Trucking accidents — In trucking accidents, we review a driver’s log book to see if he exceeded the maximum allowable drive time. We also measure skid marks to determine if a trucker was speeding and check GPS data to see if driver fatigue was involved.
Motor vehicle accidents — For 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 available, we also review traffic camera footage to determine the at-fault driver.
Automatic/automated door injury — Automatic doors have become a regular part of our lives, similar to escalators and elevators. Automatic doors are equipped with hidden sensors designed to prevent accidental openings and closings, but they can result in serious injury due to negligence or defective parts. We retain industry specialists who are able to determine if defective components or failure to conduct regular maintenance and inspections contributed to the accident.
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 six who wander onto a dog owner’s property.
