A personal injury claim arises out of the negligent actions or inactions of one party (the Defendant) which proximately causes damages to the other party (the Plaintiff). These cases may involve medical malpractice where the Defendant is a doctor, hospital, nurse or other medical provider. The most common personal injury case arises out of a motor vehicle accident or motorcycle accident. Michigan has a NO FAULT statute which prohibits injured and innocent drivers from filing a law suit against the at-fault-driver, unless the injured person can show a serious impairment of a body function or scarring or disfigurement, or death. Work loss benefits and medical insurance coverage are obtained from the injured person’s own insurance.
Insurance companies can and will fight you for every penny that you demand – even if you are blameless in the events leading to your injuries. You need a fighter who can stand up to such companies and their attorneys – such as Attorney O’Neill.
Attorney O’Neill has recovered millions of dollars for his clients. In a recent slip and fall case, the Defendant car wash operator wanted to blame the victim for her injuries and filed a Motion to dismiss the case in Wayne County Circuit Court. Attorney O’Neill showed how the car wash was negligently managed and won the case!
In a car crash case, Attorney O’Neill brought in the other drivers and party store, as Defendants, who sold beer to the minors and who were operating the subject vehicles. In an ATV crash, Attorney O’Neill and his associates, were able to show a defective design that lead to the crash and the resulting injuries.
Mr. O'Neill helped me win my case and receive the settlement. I don't think I would have won without him.
O'Neill Law Firm is my go to lawyer after he convinced the jury that I had done nothing wrong and in fact had been taken advantage of by an unfair business. I recommend him highly.
