David Moss, senior partner, principal shareholder, and co-founder of Moss & Colella, P.C., specializes in personal injury trial law—successfully representing clients for more than a quarter century. Regarded as a highly skilled and tenacious advocate for victims of personal injury, Moss is greatly respected by both plaintiff and defense litigators.
Moss has fought for the rights of injured persons throughout his entire legal career, litigating cases and representing thousands of injured victims and their families against insurance companies, national corporations, hospitals, municipalities, railroads, and individual defendants. His skills, both in and out of the courtroom, have produced millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements against hospitals, insurance companies, negligent drivers, bars, and drunk drivers.
For example, a Detroit jury returned a $15 million verdict for one family in a case involving a drunk driver and a local casino. Recent jury trial decisions include a win against an Auto No-Fault insurance carrier in excess of $630,000; six figure resolutions in both a boating and an ATV accident; and a $1.2 million settlement in a hotly contested medical malpractice case.
Also, known for his trial and negotiation skills, Moss has argued before the Michigan Supreme Court and several Michigan Court of Appeals panels. A recent success out of the Michigan Supreme Court resulted in a recovery of hundreds of thousands of dollars to a Detroit family in a medical malpractice case.
Moss is named among the top 1% of auto accident lawyers in the nation and has been on the Michigan Super Lawyer list for 13 years. He is a member of the State Bar of Michigan, Detroit Bar Association and Oakland County Bar Association. He is licensed to practice in all Michigan state and federal courts. He is also certified as a Case Evaluator/Mediator and is often selected by other plaintiff attorneys to sit as a designated arbitrator on their client’s behalf to resolve complicated cases.
Moss has a strong affiliation with the Downtown Boxing Gym. He has volunteered with the organization from its earliest days, helping to establish the Downtown Boxing Gym’s original board of directors and serving as one of the first official members, while gathering executives from international and local powerhouse corporations to also serve. He continues his efforts with the gym to this day.
Moss also enjoys a variety of outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, boating and camping, and has been Assistant Scout Master with a local Boy Scout Troop for many years, actively assisting many young men along their path to the rank of “Eagle Scout.” He also believes regular exercise is an important component to maintaining his competitive edge; consequently, he is a cyclist and passionate about downhill skiing. He also practices yoga to strike a balance between the rigors of a demanding law practice and life’s everyday challenges.
