Grand Rapids, Michigan Personal Injury Attorney

Lawyer for West Michigan Injury Victims in Kent, Ottawa, and Muskegon County

Attorney John D. Tallman is a Grand Rapids native and has been serving personal injury clients throughout West Michigan for almost 40 years. Throughout his legal career, he has handled a wide variety of cases involving car, truck, and motorcycle crashes, construction site accidents, defective products, and more. He understands the unique challenges associated with different kinds of cases, and he has achieved results for his clients through both settlements and trials.

If you or a family member has been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, we want to help you recover by pursuing full compensation for your damages. We bring a personal approach to our work with each client, and we are committed to seeing your case through from beginning to end. We do not receive compensation unless we achieve a successful outcome for you.

Car Accidents

Car Accidents

Car crashes affect West Michigan residents every day, especially along busy I-96, I-196, and U.S. 131. Speeding, drunk, and distracted drivers contribute to the risk of accidents and often cause serious injuries requiring expensive medical treatment and extended recovery periods. We can help you hold negligent drivers accountable through a personal injury lawsuit and obtain compensation for your bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering damages to help ease your financial, physical, and mental stress.

Bike Accidents

Bicycle Accidents

Biking is a popular means of transportation and form of recreation in Grand Rapids and throughout West Michigan, but bicyclists are often at risk of injury due to the negligence of motor vehicle operators. When an accident occurs, bicyclists lack the level of physical protection that other drivers have, and they also may be ineligible for Personal Injury Protection insurance benefits. Our experienced attorney can help bicyclists pursue the compensation they need through a lawsuit against the at-fault driver.

Truck Accidents

Truck Accidents

Semi-truck accidents can be especially dangerous because of the size and weight imbalance between trucks and other vehicles. If you have been injured in a truck accident, we can help you identify all liable parties, which may include a drowsy, drunk, or negligent driver, as well as the trucking company that employs the driver and other employees involved in the shipping process. We can also help you gather evidence from driver logbooks and trucking company records that can bolster your claim for full compensation.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accidents

In Michigan, motorcyclists do not have access to the same type and degree of insurance coverage as other drivers, and they are at a greater risk of injury and death in an accident. Resulting expenses due to medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering can be high, and in order to make up for them, motorcyclists often need to seek compensation from the driver who caused the accident. Our attorneys can help you demonstrate liability and obtain the recovery you need.

Construction Site Accidents

Construction Accidents

Construction projects often involve a variety of contractors, subcontractors, and their respective employees, and they may be located near areas experiencing high pedestrian or vehicle traffic. The negligent behavior of any party on a construction site can cause accidents leading to serious injuries for both employees and bystanders. If you have been injured in a construction site accident, our attorneys can help you identify who was at fault and seek compensation to pay for your damages.
