Prosecuting your catastrophic injury claim
An experienced personal injury lawyer at the Baldwin Legal Services PLLC can assist you with your wrongful death or catastrophic injury claim. These are some of the common issues that come up during the course of this type of litigation:
- Catastrophic injury pleading requirements: When filing a personal injury claim, it is vital to the success of your case to provide the court with as much information as possible about your accident, your injury, along with who caused your accident and the damages you are seeking. A skilled attorney at the firm can assist you in properly filing your claim.

The discovery process in a catastrophic injury claim focuses on these issues. To that end, the firm’s attorneys seek information about the events surrounding your injury, including how the injury could have been avoided, whether the offending party was aware of the circumstances resulting in your injury and whether there exists a pattern of behavior resulting in similar injuries or near-injuries.
- Using expert witnesses: Depending on your type of claim, the firm’s Michigan injury lawyers may retain expert witnesses and consultants including physicians, engineers, forensic accountants, computer specialists, private investigators, loss-of-limb specialists, psychiatrists and financial experts who can help value your claim.
