Grand Rapids, MI Personal Injury Attorney

Kent County car accident injury lawyer

Law Firm Serving Personal Injury Victims in Kent, Ottawa, and Muskegon Counties

When you are injured in an accident, your life can change in an instant. In the days, weeks, and years that follow, you may be confronted with difficult surgeries, extended hospital stays, lengthy recovery periods, high medical expenses compounded by lost income from an inability to work, and possibly long-term pain and suffering that permanently impacts your mental health and quality of life. It is enough to overwhelm anyone, and you may not know where to turn for help.

We have served personal injury clients in Grand Rapids and throughout West Michigan for nearly 40 years, and we have the knowledge and experience to navigate even the most challenging cases. We are compensated only when we achieve a successful outcome for our clients, and we remain committed to you from the moment you contact us until your case is resolved. We will do everything in our power to ease your burden and help you on the path to recovery.

A Grand Rapids Attorney for All Manner of Personal Injury Cases

Accidents can happen in the most unexpected of circumstances, and no matter how your injury occurred, you need an attorney who can achieve results. At John D. Tallman, PLC, we serve victims of incidents including:

We have a thorough understanding of the Michigan laws that affect each of these situations, and through our experience, we know the necessary evidence and effective negotiation and litigation strategies that give our clients the best chance at receiving full compensation.

Establishing Fault in a Kent County Personal Injury Lawsuit

We encourage you to reach out to us as soon as possible after your accident so we can begin to identify all parties that may be liable. In some personal injury cases, liability is limited to one individual, such as a car or truck driver or a dog owner, but others involve several liable parties including property owners, contractors, product manufacturers, and more. When additional parties are involved, the cases may be more challenging to navigate, but you may also be entitled to higher compensation. We have successfully achieved personal injury settlements and verdicts in the range of $1 million and more, many of which have involved multiple defendants including business entities.

Along with helping you identify who is at fault, we will work with you to gather the evidence you need to prove it. We encourage you to take any photographs you can of your injuries and the scene of the accident in the immediate aftermath, and from there we can seek additional evidence that may be difficult for you to obtain on your own, including police reports, business records, video footage, and witness testimony.

We will also advise you on the amount of compensation you should seek based on the type of accident and the severity of your injuries. In most personal injury lawsuits, you can pursue recovery for economic damages including medical bills, destruction of property, and lost income or earning capacity. For injuries with lasting negative impacts, you can also seek compensation for non-economic damages due to mental anguish, scarring and disfigurement, and harm to your personal relationships and enjoyment of life.

Whenever possible, we strive for a fair resolution through a settlement negotiation with the liable parties so that you can get compensation as soon as possible. When a settlement is not possible, we are prepared to utilize our extensive courtroom experience to represent you throughout trial and fight for a favorable outcome.
