Because Michigan is a no-fault state, many people assume they have no legal remedy if hit and injured in a car accident by a reckless driver. That isn’t true. Lawsuits against the driver at fault are called third-party lawsuits in Michigan. In a third-party case, the injured person brings a claim against the driver who caused the crash for reimbursement for disfigurement, pain and suffering and economic harms, and for losses if wage loss is permanent or will continue over 3 years after the accident (your own auto insurance pays a wage-replacement benefit for up to 3 years). Money is paid by the at-fault driver’s insurance company, so long as he or she has coverage. Our experienced legal and medical team is always available for a free consultation and to immediately give you answers. We let you know if you are entitled to monetary reimbursement for your injuries and losses.
Medical malpractice is where an injury occurs to a patient because of an error by a medical professional or medical facility (i.e., doctor, physician assistant, nurse, hospital, or healthcare facility). There are patient safety rules in medicine called “standard of practice.” Medical professionals who violate patient safety are responsible for the harm and losses. Our team of Michigan medical malpractice attorneys and specialists helps you file a medical malpractice lawsuit against negligent medical professionals so you receive fair and just reimbursement.
Whether you’ve suffered a traumatic brain injury, a birth injury, a severe burn, or a spinal injury, we investigate your claim and demand reimbursement from those responsible for your injuries. What does the future hold? Will your loved one ever be able to function and live independently again? If not, how will the family pay for round-the-clock medical care needed to maintain any quality of life? These are just some questions we answer for our clients with family members with serious injuries. And for every meritorious case, we help them.
Serious injury and death cases require exceptional attorney skill, knowledge, and experience. But that’s just half the equation.
Cases involving catastrophic injuries or death from an accident or medical negligence (such as brain injury, birth trauma, paralysis, disfigurement, severe burns, or wrongful death) require an experienced on-staff medical team to navigate the complexities.
Because of our exclusive focus on catastrophic injury and medical malpractice cases, we employ on-staff experienced medical professionals, full-time. You may find other law firms who will get you answers in several weeks by mailing your medical records to a for-profit company or to a nurse trying to make extra money. At Buchanan Firm we employ medical professionals on-staff and experienced medical-legal attorneys to give you immediate answers.
