Daniel Beck, Personal Injury Lawyer in Detroit, accomplished the rare feat of winning 18 consecutive jury trialson behalf of his clients in personal injury cases in various courtrooms around the State of Michigan. In each of those victories, he was the sole attorney on the case, sometimes trying the entire case to the jury against two opposing lawyers.
Mr. Beck, specializing in personal injury and medical malpractice in Detroit, has handled hundreds of other cases successfully, with many of these lawsuits also involving complex and challenging issues of fact and law. He is proud to have achieved the following results for his clients in cases which often settled on the day of trial, after conducting extensive discovery, research, fact gathering, expert consultation, and trial preparation:
