When you’ve been injured through no fault of your own by an accidental or an intentional act, you may have weeks – or even months – of medical treatment and recovery ahead of you. Your injuries may prevent you from working or fully enjoying your life. As you recover physically, it’s encouraging to know you have legal options to help you recover financially as well.
If someone else caused your accident and injuries, you have the right to seek compensation from the at-fault party. That compensation could help you recover for your medical expenses, the paychecks from the work you missed, and your pain and suffering.
A legal claim for compensation over your personal injuries can be complicated and time-consuming. But with an experienced personal injury attorney on your side, you will put yourself in the best position to obtain maximum compensation for your losses.

What Type of Michigan Personal Injury Accident Were You Hurt In?
An injury can be caused by any number of accidents. If your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness, you can pursue damages from that person through a personal injury claim.
The types of personal injury claims that the Christensen Law firm handles include:
- Product Liability – Dangerous products can cause serious harm to consumers. The manufacturer of a dangerous product can be held liable for any injuries caused by a product defect or a mislabeled product.
- Premises Liability – Did you know that property owners have a duty of care to everyone who sets foot on their property? You may have a claim if your injury resulted from negligence on someone else’s property.
- Motorcycle Accidents – All too often drivers don’t watch out for motorcyclists. If you have been seriously injured because of another motorist’s carelessness, a motorcycle accident claim could result in compensation for the ordeal you have been through.
- Car Accidents – Car collisions are among the most common types of personal injury accidents. If you’ve been seriously injured in a car accident, talk to our Michigan injury lawyers about filing a claim.
- Truck Accidents – Big rigs cause big damage when they collide with smaller vehicles. You have every right to seek justice and compensation for your suffering from a truck accident.
- Wrongful Death – The death of a loved is a devastating event. When the death was caused by another party’s negligence, talk to our wrongful death lawyers about a wrongful death claim.
- Nursing Home Neglect / Abuse – Elderly adults are vulnerable to abuse when they cannot care for themselves. Fight the neglect or abuse they suffered by holding the liable parties financially responsible.
If you have suffered one of these accidents or some other accident or injury through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim.
