Total Compensation for Life-Changing Accidents

Free Consultation: (734) 677-2020

A traumatic brain injury can cause serious cognitive deficits, leaving an injured person unable to perform once-routine tasks. A spinal cord injury may prevent someone from ever walking again. When these injuries are caused by negligence, injured victims should not have to face the consequences alone.

The attorneys at Ferris & Salter, P.C., are dedicated to securing full damages for people who have suffered devastating, permanent injuries. We work with victims' families and a network of experts to determine the long-term medical care needs and economic consequences of a serious injury, and aggressively pursue compensation from the responsible parties.

A Better Future for our Clients

We understand the devastating physical, emotional and financial effects of an incapacitating injury. Through aggressive representation, our skilled and experienced trial lawyers have obtained many verdicts and settlements to give victims justice, security, and a better quality of life.

Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, we represent clients statewide. Don Ferris and Heidi Salter-Ferris are veterans of more than 250 jury trials. We can effectively handle every type of catastrophic injury including:

  • Paralysis
  • Paraplegia or quadriplegia
  • Back and neck injury
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Nerve damage / loss of function
  • Blindness / eye injury

Compensation for Catastrophic Injury

Many clients will need years or even a lifetime of care. For the family members of someone who has suffered a brain or spinal cord injury, it can be difficult to understand the full consequences of such an injury. At Ferris & Salter, P.C., we assemble a team of experts to develop a life care plan for the injured victim. This team may include neurologists, family physicians, psychologists, economists, building contractors, home care providers, physical therapists, vocational rehabilitation experts, and others.

We determine the prognosis for recovery and address all future medical and personal needs, such as home modification, nursing care, medical equipment, and medications. We then seek comprehensive compensation that replaces lost earning potential, loss of quality of life, medical costs, and pain and suffering.
