Lipton Law Stands Against Capping Benefits to Accident Victims

Governor Snyder’s new proposal on Michigan’s No-Fault Insurance would cap benefits that car accident victims can receive at one million dollars.  For many car accident victims, this amount will not secure the medical coverage a car accident victim actually needs.  Lipton Law, the Southfield, Michigan person injury law firm,  recommends you read this article and let your local state representative know that you do not agree with this change.

  • Michigan Bills Recently Introduced Cause Debate Over Medical Malpractice Cases

    The trauma of medical malpractice for a patient is indescribable. Not only is there a sense of trust being betrayed, but due to the often invasive aspects of surgery, medical treatment, and other aspects of hospital care or diagnosis screenings, any act of negligence on the part of a medical professional or facility has the capability of changing a person’s life forever. With that being said, four bills recently introduced in Michigan, Senate Bill 1115, Senate Bill 1116, Senate Bill 1117, and Senate Bill 1118, have raised debate over who would really benefit.

    The main characteristic of medical malpractice that these bills would change is the limitation of non-economic damages, which includes the loss of household and other services. As Southfield personal injury lawyer Marc E. Lipton posited, “Who usually provides those household services?” As you may gather, Marc is suggesting that the bills would seem to do women a disservice in denying them compensation in the event that their lives are shaken by medical malpractice.

    The bills would also significantly cap, or limit, the amount of damages a person could receive in a medical malpractice lawsuit. Since the bills would protect medical professionals from being sued if the alleged malpractice is believed to have been “the exercise of professional judgment”, other critics of the bills claim that they give doctors who have made catastrophic mistakes immunity.

MI Personal Injury Lawyers Marc Lipton and Jody Lipton of Lipton Law Co-Hosted Supreme Challenge Fundraiser 2012

By Lipton Law on July 20, 2012 - No comments

The Supreme Challenge Fundraiser 2012 is a fundraising event created to help restore fairness and justice to the Michigan Supreme Court. The event was held on July 12 and was co-hosted by Marc Lipton and Jody Lipton of the Michigan personal injury law firm Lipton Law and Laura Eisenberg of the family law firm Alexander, Eisenberg & Spilman. Individuals in attendance were asked to donate to support three exceptional candidates for the Michigan Supreme Court: Judge Sheila Johnson, Professor Bridget Mary McCormack, and Judge Connie Marie Kelly. Each of these outstanding candidates is endorsed by the Michigan Democratic Party.

The decisions made by the Michigan Supreme Court significantly impact the lives of men, women, and families across the state of Michigan. However, unfortunately more than 80 percent of the current decisions of the court have benefited banks, insurance companies, special interest groups, and polluters at the expense of the state’s middle class families.

The Supreme Challenge Fundraiser 2012 was held not only to raise money for Supreme Court candidates who will undoubtedly be catalysts for positive change, but also to emphasize the significance of having women’s voices heard in government. The Supreme Challenge Fundraiser event also emphasized the ways in which justice and equity can be preserved in the Michigan Supreme Court and why this is essential for the people of Michigan as well as the future of the state.

At Lipton Law, our personal injury attorneys are dedicated to helping the residents of Michigan who have been injured as a result of another’s negligence obtain the compensation they need to recover and rebuild their lives. Our professional experience, knowledge, and skills have allowed us to help numerous injury accident victims over the years, and we aim to continue our commitment to providing exceptional legal counsel to the people Michigan in the years to come.

Michigan Attorney Jody Lipton of Lipton Law Honored as Legislative Liaison Co-Chair for BIAMI Spring Tribute Legacy Society Dinner

By Lipton Law on March 30, 2012 - No comments

Southfield personal injury lawyer Jody Lipton, of the Michigan law firm Lipton Law, is proud to be the Legislative Liaison Co-Chair for the Brain Injury Association of Michigan (BIAMI) Spring Tribute Legacy Society Dinner and Auction being held on March 31st at The Diamond Center at The Suburban Collection Showplace. In addition, Lipton Law is a VIP Reception Sponsor for the fundraising event.

The BIAMI is part of the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) network, the country’s largest and oldest nationwide brain injury advocacy, education, and research organization which focuses on bringing hope, healing, and help to the millions of people living with brain injury, their families, and the dedicated professionals who serve them. The Legacy Society Tribute is an important fundraiser for BIAMI. Last year’s Legacy Society’s Spring Tribute Dinner raised over $170,000 in net income for BIAMI and hopefully this year’s will be just as successful, if not more so.

This year’s black-tie optional event will have a Special Guest Presentation by Captain Mark Kelly, husband of U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was the victim of an assassination attempt in January 2011. The honorees at the 2012 Dinner are Phillip W. Weaver, CEO of the Hope Network, who is receiving the Community Service & Leadership Award, and Joel R. Saper, MD, FACP, FAAN, founder and director of the Michigan Head Pain & Neurological Institute, who is receiving the Professional Service Award. The online auction accompanying the event will be open for bidding through April 11th.

A brain injury can create undue emotional, physical, and financial hardships for the victim and their family. At Lipton Law, our experienced Michigan personal injury attorneys are committed to obtaining just compensation for victims of negligence.
