General Negligence

Corporations and individuals are often subject to a wide variety of tort, statutory and contract-based claims. Not all such claims fit clearly and distinctly into defined definitions, such as traditional premises, auto, product liability or construction accident claims. Secrest Wardle provides the diversity of experience and the qualified litigators necessary to address all such litigation needs.

 

If the claim has to do with personal conduct, special relationships developed between parties, obligations assumed by contract, statutory claims, including claims under the Michigan Consumer Protection Act, or otherwise, individuals and businesses need to be able to rely upon recognized leaders in defense litigation. Secrest Wardle brings decades of experience in litigation allowing us to assist clients in all such areas. This work can be directly on behalf of the individual or corporate litigant. Such work can also be through liability carriers who provide a sufficiently broad base of coverage for addressing any and all such claims.
