Attorneys in Plunkett Cooney's Motor Vehicle Liability Practice Group specialize in cases involving personal injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents.
Our attorneys have a great deal of experience handling matters in which a “threshold injury” claim is made for damages. Their work requires a detailed understanding of the various legal theories concerning negligence and comparative fault, as well as an advanced working knowledge of medical care and conditions.
The Michigan No-Fault Act controls issues surrounding Michigan motor vehicle liability law. Accordingly, our attorneys stay abreast of any modifications in the No-Fault law and its interpretation. They are also updated regularly on appellate court rulings and trial results that impact motor vehicle liability claims.
