A Michigan Personal Injury Attorney

When Michael B. Serling won the first jury trial in Michigan for a client who had developed asbestosis, a non-cancerous scarring of the lungs associated with asbestos exposure, it was a landmark case. This was the first time asbestos industry giants like Johns Manville were held accountable by a Michigan jury.

Michael, a 30-year-old sole practitioner, knew that the asbestos industry would fight tooth and nail to prevent asbestos disease victims from seeing justice served. Little did Michael realize that this landmark verdict would lead to the creation of a law firm, now with a 50+ year history of helping victims of mesothelioma and asbestos receive justice.

Today, Serling & Abramson, P.C. is a thriving group of veteran attorneys who have handled thousands of cases involving hazardous materials, automobile accidents, medical malpractice, dangerous and defective products, workplace injuries, wrongful deaths, personal injury, and more.

Michigan’s Experts On Mesothelioma & Asbestos-Related Cases

After helping the widow of a man who died of mesothelioma in 1975, Michael Serling developed a passion for helping the underserved victims of mesothelioma and asbestos-related illnesses. Other serious malignancies related to asbestos exposure include lung cancer, colon cancer, and esophageal cancer. Thousands of cases later, Serling & Abramson, P.C. is a well-versed Michigan law firm in this field.

Equally devoted to pursuing justice for victims and their families is Eric B. Abramson, who has worked for the firm since 1989, when he started as an asbestos product exposure investigator. After learning about the firm’s mission, he became inspired to pursue a law degree and has gone on to investigate, litigate, and resolve thousands of asbestos cases, eventually becoming a proud shareholder of Serling & Abramson, P.C.

Many large firms advertise that they handle mesothelioma and asbestos-related cases when, in fact, they have no experience handling litigation in Michigan. (They often hand cases off to attorneys in another state.) Many asbestos disease victims do not realize that hiring an inexperienced lawyer who merely refers cases to other lawyers can be a crucial error. At Serling & Abramson, P.C., our dedication and results speak for themselves. We always pursue maximum compensation for every client we represent.
