Civil Litigation

Civil Litigation

While no one expects to end up in litigation, but sometimes bad things happen to good people. The court system, though imperfect, offers an avenue for individuals to vindicate their rights and obtain just compensation when they are wrongfully hurt. Hiring the right lawyer is one of the most important decisions an injured person can make.

Maxwell Goss Law represents companies and individuals facing many types of litigation. While we always consider alternatives, we understand that, sometimes, taking a dispute to court is the most beneficial solution. Together, we work to protect your interests and assert your legal rights.

Civil disputes can arise under all types of circumstances, and they can involve an extraordinarily broad range of legal issues. When facing a dispute, one of the first steps is to identify the specific factual and legal issues involved. For example, let’s imagine a scenario involving a commercial truck accident: Was the truck driver being negligent? Was the truck’s cargo loaded improperly? Was the truck itself defective? Did an issue with the road cause the accident? To determine liability, it is first necessary to determine precisely what went wrong.

At Maxwell Goss Law, we bring a forceful advocacy and sophisticated grasp of law and procedure to a select group of plaintiff’s-side civil litigation cases. Our attorneys will thoroughly evaluate the facts of your case in order to assess your legal rights and determine your best course of action. Our attorneys use this approach to vigorously enforce and protect our clients’ rights in cases involving:

Regardless of the circumstances involved, seeking legal counsel promptly is the best way to ensure you do not give up your legal rights. If you believe you may be entitled to financial compensation, or if you need help asserting or defending against a civil claim, a Michigan civil litigation lawyer can advise you of your options.
