Personal Injury

In this life, we're all entitled to our own share of ups and downs. Plans will fall through. Disappointments will occur. Judgments will be made. However, there are some misfortunate events that we don't have to accept — like not being compensated for personal injuries sustained because of the negligence and recklessness of other people. In these situations, the universe has your back and so do we, the legal team at Barrix Law Firm. With attorney Jason Barrix by your side, you can rest assured that we'll do everything in our power to make sure you get the money you deserve.

Auto Accident Attorney in Michigan

The most common type of personal injury case we handle involves auto accidents. If your injuries were sustained in an accident involving a car, motorcycle, or semi-truck, we understand the devastation and fear you must be feeling. Even if your injuries are relatively minor, the emotional and mental impact that happens consequently can have a negative impact that alters how you move throughout the rest of your life. For over 20 years, we've handled cases like yours and we know how to work towards good results.

Dog Bites and Animal Attacks Attorney in Michigan

Animals are great. Anyone who has had a pet understands how therapeutic the unconditional love and companionship of a dog, cat, or any other animal can be. With pet ownership comes great responsibility and part of that responsibility is ensuring that 1.) they stay where they're supposed to be and 2.) people who are invited or permitted to interact with them are safe to do so. When these standards aren't upheld and injuries result, the owners are liable. If you were attacked and/or bitten by a dog or another animal, there could be compensation for you. Get in touch with us and together we'll figure it out.

Workers' Compensation Attorney in Michigan

Like it or not, getting up and going to work is just part of the game of life for those who need to take care of themselves or their family. When you're at work, you should be able to do your job without worrying about your safety. Nevertheless, injuries that happen on the job are more common than what a lot of people realize — especially in the boating and construction industries. At Barrix Law Firm, we can help make sure you're compensated for your workplace injury.

How much time do I have to file a claim?

The statute of limitations for personal injury cases is three years unless the at-fault party is a government agency, which in that case you have six months to file a formal claim and two years to file a lawsuit.

What can I use my compensation for?

The most common expense compensation is used for is medical bills and other expenses that the injury has disallowed you to pay, but you can really use it on whatever you want.

Are pet owners protected?

While most states have a "one bite rule" for pets that prevents owners from being liable for the pet's first offense, Michigan law holds pet owners liable every time regardless of if it's the first offense or not.

Can I take my case straight to court after an accident?

Because Michigan is a no-fault state, which means medical bills and other expenses are paid for by each party's insurance company, there are only a few circumstances in which going to court is allowed:

  • someone died
  • someone was significantly disfigured
  • someone lost a bodily function or a bodily function was severely impaired
