    Truck Accident

    Truck drivers and trucking companies take every opportunity to pass through our state because Michigan has minimal load restrictions for semi-trucks. The heavy volume of trucks in our state not only tear up our roads but increases the likelihood of a violent collision. To make matters worse, when they fail to follow the proper safety precautions they can cause serious accidents. We are committed to holding them accountable for negligence.

    Dog Bites

    Nationwide, dog bite statistics are occurring at alarmingly high rates. Nearly 4.7 million people are bitten by dogs annually. Unfortunately, 50% of dog bite fatalities are children who are under 10 years old. More than half of the fatalities from dog bites and attacks were initiated by Pitbulls and Rottweiler dogs, with Rottweiler bites the most fatal. Under Michigan law, dog owners are strictly liable for injuries caused by their animal, unless there is evidence of provocation. Our team of highly skilled attorneys will maximize your recovery if you have been injured by a dog.

    Railroad / FELA Claims

    There are many risks and dangers associated with railroad employment.Working for the railroad is hard work and with it often comes serious injuries and deaths due to the nature of the job.If you are working for the railroad and have been injured on the job, then you may file a FELA Claim. FELA stands for Federal Employers’ Liability Act and was first enacted in 1908. FELA was enacted to ensure railroad employees would have a safe workplace.

  • Medical Malpractice

    Medical Malpractice

    “The Journal of the American Medical Association”(JAMA) commissioned a study with starling statistical revelations.The study revealed that 46% of all medical malpractice cases occurred in outpatient settings.In these outpatient settings errors were made with the diagnosis of patients.Whereas only a third (34%) of the claims resulted from surgical errors for in-patient incidents.

  • Wrongful Death

    Wrongful Death

    When a family member or loved one is fatally injured as a result of an auto accident, medical malpractice, construction site incident, or any other act of negligence, the surviving heirs may file a wrongful death claim. Damages for a wrongful death include, payment of medical, funeral or burial expenses, lost wages, survivor loss and “conscious pain and suffering.

  • Motorcycle Accidents

    Motorcycle Accidents

    Motorcycle accidents in Michigan can present special challenges for crash victims and their lawyers: Under Michigan’s No-Fault insurance laws, a motorcycle is not considered a motor vehicle. Still, there are exceptions that allow a person injured in a motorcycle accident to recover No-Fault insurance benefits and compensation for pain and suffering. Our motorcycle accident lawyers can help you.

  • Construction Site Accidents

    Construction Site Accidents

    Every commercial or private work site requires construction companies to inspect all aspects of the construction site. Additionally, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has developed construction site safety standards and regulations which apply to all construction site workers, construction site equipment, and training for all construction site workers. Unfortunately, OSHA believes that more than 1,000 construction workers will be killed on a construction site this year, with most of these deaths being preventable.

  • Slip/Trip and Fall

    Slip/Trip and Fall

    A Michigan premises liability case can be filed by a victim injured by the negligent maintenance of a property or business owner negligence.

Michigan Personal Injury Lawyer FAQ

What is a personal injury?

Personal injury, as opposed to an injury to property, is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind, or emotions. Such injuries can stem from a number of accidents, including the following:

• Auto Accidents
• Construction Site Accidents
• Dog Bites / Animal Attacks
• Medical Malpractice
• Motorcycle Accidents
• Railroad / FELA Claims
• Slip/Trip and Fall
• Snowmobile Accidents
• Truck Accidents
• Wrongful Death

Our lawyers at Moss & Colella practice in all of the areas listed above in order to help clients to the best of our ability.

What benefits can I receive after an injury?

In the state of Michigan, the law states that if an individual’s negligence causes you or a loved one harm then they may be responsible for injury-related expenses.

Compensation for lost wages, past/current/future medical bills, reimbursement for travel to medical facilities, etc. may be obtainable – depending on the extent of damages.

Do I need to speak with an attorney if I am involved in an accident?

Speaking to an attorney is absolutely urged; especially since a free consultation is typically provided, meaning that there is no cost in discussing your case. Lawyers are professionals who have an in-depth understanding of the complicated laws and will protect you from being taken advantage of when fighting for rightful compensation. Additionally, legal representation provides a more thorough investigation into the facts and circumstances of the incident and are aware of time limitations. These limitations are vital in any case, as one missed deadline can result in a total loss for recovering anything.

Any accident can bring major stress and concern. By working with an attorney, individuals are not only in a stronger position for their case, but they do not have to go through this stressful time alone. A Personal Injury Lawyer will do whatever they can to assist.

Do I still have the right to receive insurance benefits if I am injured in a car accident but was responsible for the accident?

Yes – Michigan is a “no-fault” auto-insurance state. This means that even if you were at fault for causing the accident, you will receive insurance benefits.

Can I file a claim against the driver who caused the collision even though I have a "no-fault" insurance policy?

Yes – Michigan law allows the injured party to file a claim (referred to as a third-party lawsuit) against the negligent driver. Under Michigan law, the injured party is entitled to bring a third-party lawsuit for non-economic damages where the injured person has suffered serious impairment of body function, permanent disfigurement, and/or death.

However, every legal case is different – so discussing your individual options with a lawyer is important.

How much time following an auto accident do I have to pursue a claim against the at-fault driver?

A claim typically must be filed within three years after the accident. However, there are exceptions and variations to this rule. Speak with a lawyer at Moss & Colella for more information.
