Skilled Pursuit Of Your Personal Injury Compensation

When you or a family member has been injured by another party’s negligence or reckless actions, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim against that person or entity.

Your ability to recover compensation may depend on the skill and determination of your legal counsel. At Jocuns Law Firm, I am not looking for a quick settlement. My team and I work to ensure that you are compensated as fully as possible for the harm and losses you suffered.

We are ready to help. My legal team pursues auto accident, slip-and-fall accident and other personal injury lawsuits in Lapeer, surrounding communities of Michigan and statewide. Please reach out today at 810-498-2772 for a free consultation.

A Trial Lawyer On Your Side

I am Bernard Jocuns, an attorney in Lapeer with extensive litigation experience. I do not shy away from the courtroom, and I am not intimidated by insurance companies. I prepare my personal injury cases as if I will be presenting them to a jury. I can quickly and accurately assess your case in order to assign liability, estimate proper  compensation and deploy appropriate strategies. That thorough and aggressive approach puts my clients in a better negotiating position for a settlement that reflects their injuries and meets their needs.

Your Michigan Personal Injury Attorney

Reach out to us if you have suffered lasting injury from any of the following:

  • Car accident (intersection crash or rear-end collision)
  • Truck accident (collision with a commercial vehicle)
  • Motorcycle crash
  • Pedestrian or bicycle accident (hit by a car)
  • Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall

My firm’s team investigates promptly to preserve evidence, talk to witnesses, gather reports and determine who is liable and what the available insurance coverages may be.

Holding The Negligent Parties Accountable

In a motor vehicle accident, the other party may deny fault or blame you. In a premises liability case, the property owner may deny liability or claim they had no knowledge of the safety hazard. I am prepared to battle the insurance companies, including your own insurer if the other driver was uninsured or underinsured.

My team and I take a holistic approach to your personal injury claim. You are not just a case file, but a person. We spend time to understand how the accident affects your life, including any lasting impairment or disfigurement.

Frequently Asked Questions

Listed below are questions we often hear from people who are considering whether or not they should file a personal injury claim.

How Do I Know If My Accident Will Qualify In Court As A Personal Injury Claim?

A valid claim involves injuries caused by another person or business’s negligence or intentional actions. Factors such as medical expenses, lost wages, and emotional distress contribute to the strength of your case.

How Long Do I Have To File A Personal Injury Lawsuit In Michigan?

In Michigan, the statute of limitations is generally three years from the date the injury happened. However, in some circumstances, that date may be different. Consulting my firm early helps ensure that your case is properly filed within this timeframe.

How Are Personal Injury Settlements Calculated?

Settlements are based on the unique circumstances of each case. Factors that the court looks at include medical expenses, lost income, property damage, and emotional distress. I work diligently to maximize your compensation based on the specific details surrounding your case.

Will My Personal Injury Case Go To Trial?

Most personal injury cases are settled out of court. I prioritize negotiating a fair settlement that covers your losses. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, I am prepared to take your case to trial to fight for the compensation you deserve. I will guide you through every step and keep you informed on the best course of action.
