The Legal Services We Provide

Even the most clear-cut case presents difficulties, which are compounded by the fact that every case is unique. However, our team of seasoned Michigan personal injury lawyers has abundant experience in the following areas, among others:

  • Car Accidents: Car accidents can drastically alter your life, and at Berger Law, we understand the importance of a meticulous approach to each case. Whether it’s a minor collision or a major crash, our lawyers are skilled in negotiating with insurance companies and, if necessary, taking your case to trial. We focus on obtaining full compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and emotional distress, helping you to rebuild and move forward from this traumatic experience.
  • Truck Accidents: When it comes to truck accidents, Berger Law is proficient in handling these complex cases, which often involve severe injuries and significant legal intricacies due to the size and regulations of commercial vehicles. Our team diligently works to uncover all factors, including driver fatigue, improper loading, or maintenance failures, to ensure that our clients receive the compensation they deserve. We navigate the challenging terrain of federal and state regulations to build a solid case that addresses all aspects of your suffering and loss.
  • Motorcycle Accidents: Motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries due to the lack of protection compared to other vehicles. Our attorneys at Berger Law are passionate about defending the rights of motorcyclists and pursue every avenue to ensure that negligence is not overlooked. We address common issues such as visibility and road hazards while fighting for your right to compensation for the full extent of your injuries, future medical needs, and pain and suffering.
  • Bicycle Accidents: Berger Law recognizes the vulnerabilities cyclists face on the road. Our experienced attorneys advocate fiercely for bicyclists involved in accidents, often caused by distracted or reckless drivers. We ensure that you are compensated for both immediate and long-term repercussions of your injuries, including medical costs, lost earning potential, and any necessary modifications to your home or lifestyle to accommodate your recovery.
  • Pedestrian Accidents: Pedestrian accidents can have devastating consequences, and our legal team at Berger Law is dedicated to supporting victims who have been struck in crosswalks, sidewalks, or while walking along roadways. We understand the critical nature of these accidents and work to secure compensation for medical treatment, lost wages, and long-term care needs, along with addressing the emotional and psychological impacts of such traumatic events.
  • Slip & Falls: At Berger Law, we handle slip and fall cases with a detailed understanding of premises liability laws. Whether your accident occurred due to unmarked wet floors, icy walkways, or other hazardous conditions, our lawyers investigate thoroughly to hold property owners accountable. We strive to ensure that you receive compensation for your injuries, pain, and any resulting disabilities.
  • Medical Malpractice: Medical malpractice claims require a lawyer who is not only knowledgeable in personal injury law but also understands medical practices and standards. Berger Law attorneys collaborate with medical experts to scrutinize the care you received, identifying deviations from standard procedures that led to your injury. Our commitment is to secure restitution for additional medical treatments, lost quality of life, and future care necessities.
  • Dog Bites: Dog bites can inflict serious harm, both physically and emotionally. Berger Law’s approach is compassionate yet assertive, focusing on the owner’s liability and the traumatic impact of such incidents. We ensure that victims are fully compensated for their physical injuries, psychological scars, and any cosmetic surgeries required as a result of the attack.
  • Wrongful Death: In the heart-wrenching cases of wrongful death, Berger Law provides dedicated support to the families of the deceased. Our legal team works to ensure that those left behind are not burdened by financial strains in addition to their grief. We seek justice for your loved one by pursuing damages for lost wages, loss of companionship, funeral expenses, and the profound emotional distress caused by your loss.

Recovering Compensation

If you can successfully satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, meaning you can prove you were injured due to another party’s negligence, you should receive compensation for the economic and non-economic damages you’ve incurred.

Examples of economic damages can include lost wages, the cost of medical bills, and more. On the other hand, examples of non-economic damages can include pain and suffering, emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment of life, and more.

Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims in Michigan

In Michigan, as a general rule, victims may have up to three years, from the date of the accident, to file a personal injury claim. Even so, you should never wait to begin the pursuit of the compensation to which you are entitled. Witnesses may relocate, memories may fade, and evidence may be lost or misplaced; all of these things could irreparably damage your case.

Furthermore, if you wait any longer than the three-year time limit to file your claim, you’ll most likely be permanently barred from suing. Our seasoned legal team stands ready to fight for you, every step of the way.
