What Makes Hiring a Lawyer in Warren So Important?
Before hiring a lawyer, you probably have lots of questions. However, no matter your circumstances, it is always beneficial to work with an attorney after an injury.
There are many pitfalls and complications related to injury claims, and trying to navigate them alone can prove disastrous for your chances at recovering compensation.
What’s more, insurance companies will try every tactic to undervalue or deny your settlement. Because of this, having a skilled Warren lawyer on your side is crucial for filing a car crash claim or other personal injury case.

What are Recoverable Damages After an Accident?

By enlisting an experienced attorney at our firm, you can rest assured that we can help to calculate each and every damage you have incurred.

Taking Action after Serious Bus Accidents
Several RideSMART bus routes provide fixed service to the Warren area, as does a reservation-based connector service and a flex route traveling along the Groesbeck corridor.
Additionally, RideSMART pairs with the City of Warren Department of Parks and Recreation to provide curb-to-curb transportation for senior residents by reservation between eight A.M. and three P.M., and numerous private bus companies provide service to and from the area as well.
Although they are generally rare occurrences, both municipal and private bus services can be subject to liability if one of their vehicles is involved in an accident that causes a passenger or another motorist to get hurt. A bus accident lawyer in Warren can help anyone hurt in a crash to understand their legal options for financial recovery.
Medical Malpractice Can Be Grounds for a Civil Claim
Compared to other causes of action for civil litigation, medical malpractice is especially complicated. Numerous additional rules and filing requirements apply to these types of cases. Failure to adhere to these requirements can leave you without any legal recourse.
However, if you suffered an injury or worsened medical condition due to a doctor’s negligence, a Warren medical malpractice lawyer at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. can help.
Common examples of malpractice include a doctor failing to read a test result correctly (such as an ultrasound or biopsy), surgical mistakes, misdiagnosis errors, or other careless behavior. If you suspect these or other negligent actions have led to your injuries, get in touch with Buckfire Law to pursue legal action. We help with claims against any healthcare facility in Warren, including:
- Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital, Warren Campus
- Henry Ford Medical Center – Warren
- Insight Surgical Hospital
- Behavioral Center of Michigan
Protecting Nursing Home Residents with Help from a Personal Injury Attorney
If you suspect your elderly loved one has been the subject of abuse or mistreatment, you may be unsure of how to proceed.
An attorney can help you spot the warning signs and file a claim to request compensation. At Buckfire Law, we could provide guidance and support if you or a loved suffered any form of abuse, neglect, or exploitation at any of the following facilities in the Warren area:
- Warren Woods Health and Rehabilitation Center

Filing Suit Over Dog Bite Injuries
Unlike other causes of action for civil cases, a dog bite confers strict liability onto the defendant in most cases, as per Michigan Compiled Laws §287.351.
This means that instead of having to prove that someone else was negligent, you can hold the dog owner liable with the help of a skilled attorney.
However, if a dog bite victim was provoking the dog or trespassing during the time of the attack, they may be barred for recovery.
Because these cases can be nuanced, it is best to work with a dog bite lawyer in Warren.
Dog Rules and Regulations Applicable to Warren Residents
Under Warren Code of Ordinances §7-29, it is illegal for any resident of Warren to allow a “vicious, fierce, or dangerous” dog to roam their property unrestrained or run at large outside their property.
As per §7-123 of Warren’s Code of Ordinances, a dog may be designated as vicious if they attack another person or animal without being provoked or have a known tendency to be aggressive towards other people and animals. Animal control officers can also declare dogs to be vicious at their discretion.
|Year||Total Dog Bites & Attacks|
If a domesticated dog bites someone else, both the dog’s owners and the individual who was bitten are obligated by §7-30 of the Code to report the incident to the police within 12 hours of its occurrence. The same requirement applies to any dog owner who believes their dog has contracted rabies.
Once the police take the dog in question into custody following such a report, it must remain quarantined until it can be examined by a licensed veterinarian. Any violation of the aforementioned regulations is considered a misdemeanor offense punishable by a maximum of 90 days in jail and a $500 fine.
