What to Expect in Your Michigan Personal Injury Case
We are proud to say that we are not a firm that uses underhanded tactics to lure clients to our firm. Unfortunately, these days there are numerous local firms that use investigators who will actually obtain your personal information (for instance, obtaining a police report revealing that you were involved in a motor vehicle accident) and contact you directly by sending fancy packets of information to your house. Some firms even send someone to your doorstep before you have even decided to contact a lawyer! Further, we do not advertise on television or the radio. (You definitely won’t see us during commercial breaks while Judge Judy is on TV!) You won’t see us on billboards or buses. We are not a firm with a “figurehead” attorney that is used to attract business. We do not sponsor sports statistics or news programs. We avoid the means of advertising that we believe hurts the integrity and perception of personal injury lawyers in general. Our resources are used to service our clients and to make sure, at the end of your case, that you will tell you family and friends that your experience with Bernstein & Bernstein was a great one.
At Bernstein & Bernstein, our clients are our priority. We hope that our reputation in the community, especially given that we have been in business since the 1920’s, will help you to realize you’ve chosen what we would like to think is one of the best law firms in town. We believe we are the oldest personal injury law firm in the entire Detroit Metropolitan area. We have a loyal staff that is committed to letting you know that you are important to us. Our main office is located in Lathrup Village (Southfield area), but we also maintain physical offices in Detroit, Flint, Taylor, Warren, and Dearborn. This is for your convenience so that you won’t have to drive far to see us for a consultation.
Home and hospital visits are available. There are certainly occasions where a future client is so badly injured that he or she will not be able to travel to one of our offices. Please let us know if you are unable to travel.
Once we have evaluated your claim and a determination has been made that representation is appropriate, we will keep you apprised of all important developments regarding your case. Keeping you informed is something that is as important to us as it is to you. If you have any questions, please let us know. We return calls promptly. Expect to hear from us on a regular basis. We will often need to ask you for information that may be important to your claim or simply to obtain updated information regarding your medical care and treatment. Most of our clients have never been involved in any kind of claim or litigation previously and it is our job to make you feel comfortable throughout the entire process.
In the end, we hope that you’ll consider your lawyer to be more than just your attorney. We hope you’ll consider him or her to be, in many ways, a friend. We have a great staff here. Please give us a call if you or someone you know has been injured or is disabled. And, of course, we do not get paid unless a recovery is made for you.
