Why Hire a Pontiac Personal Injury Lawyer?
If you have been injured in an accident in Pontiac, 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.
Just southwest of Pontiac via Middlebelt Road, our Farmington Hills office serves as our main office. Our 40-year history of working personal injury cases in communities like Pontiac, 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.
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 Oakland 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
- Wrongful Death Claims
- Social Security Disability Claims
We also work with Pontiac-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.

Risks on West Huron Street
Several intersections including West Huron St. are among the most dangerous in Pontiac. In fact, W. Huron at Telegraph Road is consistently named one of the most dangerous intersections in the entire state of Michigan. Though Pontiac no longer plays host to the Detroit Lions, it still serves as the entry point for Woodward Avenue, one of metro Detroit’s most famous roadways. Woodward Ave. is home to the annual Woodward Dream Cruise, a celebration of the “hot rod” era wherein car enthusiasts “cruise” down Woodward from Pontiac to Detroit. The intersection of W. Huron and Woodward, which is also part of the loop surrounding downtown Pontiac, is the location of more than 20 accidents each year.
I-75, which borders Pontiac to the east and north, can also be a headache for drivers. This interstate, along with M-59, can produce major accidents, whether due to winter weather, high levels of holiday traffic or traffic traveling to events at the Palace of Auburn Hills or Oakland University, or simply the common, deadly reasons for car, semi-truck, and motorcycle accidents: speed, driving under the influence, fatigued driving, and in increasing and frightening measure, distracted driving.
Distracted driving has increased significantly in Pontiac and throughout Michigan since the advent of smartphones, with many drivers taking their eyes off the road to engage with their phones. Drivers are distracted by music players, text messages, and social media while driving. Unfortunately, studies show these types of distractions actually keep the driver’s focus from the roadway for far longer than the initial engagement with the technology. This creates a danger for everyone on the road.
