In August of 2022, Sumner & Associates helped us with Estate Planning for my husband and I. We were impressed that they didn't blink an eye when asked by an LGBTQ couple. Important that I mention this for others looking for good representation. The team was thorough and provided good tips based on the law. Thank you Scott, Sarah, and Rori!

Will and Trust. Service was very well organized and guided us through the writing of a will and establishment of a trust. We also established durable power of attorney and advanced health care directives. The purpose and function of each device was clearly explained along with the roles and responsibilities of the different participants. Competitively and fairly priced.

Their reference materials did a good job of explaining the difference between a Will and a Trust. The process had steps that demonstrated progression toward completion of the documents and status was communicated along the way. Sara and Scott were thorough, friendly and answered all of our questions. The final documents are organized in a binder that has a very professional appearance. I highly recommend Sumner & Associates.

What qualifies as personal injury?

Personal injury is a legal term to define damage to a person’s body, mind or emotional health, as opposed to property damages to material things. 

What are the 3 types of damages?

Damages are money awards, in a civil court, to compensate injured people who have been harmed by the negligence of a third party. In a personal injury case, there are three (3) types of damages that need to be evaluated and they are: Economic, Non-Economic and Punitive damages. Punitive damages are meant to punish the bad actor, but not used in a typical person injury case. However,  the most typical damages are Economic and Non-economic damages, which are also known as compensatory damages. These type of damages are meant to restore or make the individual whole economically. 

For example, after a personal injury due to a car accident, you can claim damages for pain and suffering, loss of earnings and future loss of earnings. Plus, you can claim damages to personal property as well, like clothing and damages items, you can claim damages for travel, family help or equipment you may have had to buy, due to your injury. 

What are examples of personal injury?

Some examples of personal injury are cases dealing with: Auto injury, Truck Injury, Motor cycle injury, Medical Malpractice, Slip and Fall accidents, Dog Bite and Wrongful death claims. Even an intentional act such as Assault, can cause personal injury. 

Is emotional distress a personal injury?

Michigan courts recognize emotional distress as a type of mental suffering or anguish induced by an incident of negligence or intent. 

What is a good settlement offer?

There a many factor that must be considered in determining a good settlement offer. You must first determine many factors before one starts to negotiate a personal injury case value. First, determine what type of personal injury case is it? Is it an auto accident? Slip and Fall? Malpractice, Wrongful death? Each type of personal injury case has a unique way of being evaluated. Is an injury from whiplash, auto accident, back injury, knee injury, or slip and fall, injury?  Second, there must be liability and more importantly the “ability to prove liability” of the other party. Third, is that the other party must be more than 50 % at fault? And finally, what damages did the injured party sustain?  There are many more factors to consider beyond these in determining a good settlement. And that is why it is best to talk to a personal injury lawyer, as soon as possible, after an injury accident.
