Why Hire a Detroit Personal Injury Lawyer?
If you have been injured in an accident in Detroit, you will need legal expertise that works for you, with emphasis on experience and success in the state of Michigan. The Law Offices of Lee Steinberg are positioned throughout the state and have long served as the law firm of choice for residents who are seeking help for a personal injury claim. Most often, we are able to settle a client’s claims without going through a jury trial; however, if our attorneys do not believe the insurance company is meeting our demands, we will pursue your case in front of a jury in Wayne County Court.
The Law Offices of Lee Steinberg have expertise in many practice areas, but the majority of cases with which we help residents fall into one of the below types:
- Car Accidents
- Semi-Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Wrongful Death Claims
- Social Security Disability Claims
We also work with Detroit-based clients who have claims pertaining to: No-Fault Law, Dog Bites, Slip & Fall, Boating Accidents, Bicycle Accidents, Snowmobile Accidents, Deer-Vehicle Collisions, Mini-Tort, Medical Malpractice, and more.
Just northwest of Detroit via the Lodge Freeway, our Farmington Hills office serves as our main office. Our 40-year history of working personal injury cases in communities like Ann Arbor, as well as across the state, has helped us to develop a network of critical relationships with key partners: health practitioners, subject-matter experts, and law enforcement officials. This is only one component of our highly effective approach to fighting for our clients, but it gives us an edge in helping our clients get the compensation they deserve.
Detroit Motorcycle Accident Cases
As motorcycles have become an increasingly popular form of transportation, the number of motorcycle accidents have steadily increased. It’s no surprise motorcyclists are much more likely than car occupants to die or become injured in a crash, as the lack of barrier between the motorcycle driver and the object with which they are colliding makes them especially vulnerable.
What’s more surprising, however, is that when it comes to motorcycle accidents involving another vehicle, the driver of the other vehicle violated the motorcycle right-of-way and caused the accident in 66% of these cases. That was the case with one of our clients in Detroit.
Our client was on his motorcycle traveling northbound on Fort St. near Omaha St. on Detroit’s southwest side when the defendant driver, who was in a car in the next lane, swerved into our client’s lane and ran him off the road. In order to avoid impact with the defendant’s car, our client’s motorcycle hit the curb and flipped over.
As a result of this accident, our client suffered a soft tissue injury to his knee, a fractured finger, a contusion to his left hand, road rash, and a neck injury. He was put into a cast and splint, and had to undergo physical therapy for a number of weeks. For his pain and suffering, we were able to get him a large settlement.
The motorcycle accident injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Lee Steinberg are Detroit motorcycle accident experts. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle crash, we will fight to ensure you receive the compensation and benefits you deserve under the law.

Grand River Ave. and Greenfield Road Pose Problems
With I-94, I-96, and I-75 permeating the city, interstates are no doubt a common location for accidents. This is especially true in Michigan and its largest city, Detroit, where recent data from the Michigan Transportation Asset Management Council shows only 17% of that state’s roads are in good condition. 38% are in poor condition. This creates havoc for drivers who try to avoid large potholes or cracks in the road, both on the interstates and on the intersections in the city.
Grand River Avenue and Greenfield Road are responsible for more than their share of accident in the city. Greenfield at West McNichols Road, Fenkell Street, Joy Road, and West 7 Mile Road are four common sites of vehicle accidents, with Greenfield at West McNichols being the intersection most likely to see an accident causing injury or death.
Grand River Ave. is similarly dangerous, as intersections at Lahser Road and Southfield Service Drive pose significant risk for car crashes. While not making the top ten list for most accidents overall, Grand River Avenue and Evergreen Road is one of the Detroit intersections with a high number of accidents causing injury or death.
Speed, in general, plays a major role in Detroit car accidents. Other common reasons for car, motorcycle, and semi-truck accidents are driving under the influence, fatigued driving, and in increasing and frightening measure, distracted driving. In addition, Michigan winters can be brutal, and winter weather can cause accidents all over the city.
