Our practice is marked by our attorneys' compassion, intelligence and success. We have achieved numerous million-dollar and multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients, including Michigan's largest medical malpractice verdict. This was a $55 million verdict for a baby who was taken to a Detroit hospital because of difficulty breathing. The child was discharged. The next day, the child arrested on the way to the hospital and sustained brain damage as a result.
Detroit's early origins are French. The city was founded in 1701 by a French officer and grew to 800 families by 1765. British troops took control of the settlement during the French and Indian War, and the U.S. gained control of Detroit in 1796. In 1903, Henry Ford founded the Ford Motor Co., and Detroit became known as the automotive capital of the world. In the 1960s and 1970s, it became known for its music, including the Motown Records label.
Today, Detroit is a major U.S. city with 713,777 residents and is the center of a six-county metro area of nearly 4.3 million people. Its name is still synonymous with the nation's auto industry. As the headquarters of General Motors, Ford and Chrysler, Detroit is a major global center for business and trade. And it still has a strong music presence, with influential artists from hip hop and other genres.
In addition to its status as a business, auto and musical center, Detroit is a medical hub, with more than a dozen major hospitals inside city limits. Hospitals include:
- Detroit Medical Center, which operates numerous hospitals in Detroit, including Children's Hospital of Michigan, Harper University Hospital, Hutzel Women's Hospital, Sinai-Grace and several others.
- John D. Dingell Veterans Affairs Medical Center
- Henry Ford Hospital
- St. John Providence Health System, which operates several hospitals in the Detroit area
