Attorney Michael A. Abelson seeks justice and money damages for clients injured by the negligence or wrongdoing of other people and corporations. Mr. Abelson has more than 40 years of experience in highly complex personal injury cases ranging from motor vehicle crashes, medical malpractice, and defectively dangerous products to medication errors, high-rise scaffolding injuries and other challenging areas of personal injury practice.

Attorney Abelson evaluates and pursues fair compensation for individuals injured in cases involving:

  • Car accidents: From multi-car intersection crashes, to highway accidents, to pedestrian and bicycle accidents, Mr. Abelson capably represents victims of car accidents.

  • Chiropractic malpractice: A pioneer in the field of chiropractic malpractice, attorney Abelson has successfully represented clients injured by negligent chiropractors nationwide. Mr. Abelson is respected for his work on behalf of individuals and the families of loved ones who suffered carotid and vertebral artery dissection, leading to strokes or death following chiropractic neck adjustments.
  • Product liability: Attorney Abelson was first inspired to practice product liability law after learning of defective toys that seriously injured infants and children in both book Toys that Don’t Care. Mr. Abelson has since represented clients in cases involving defective children’s products, dangerous motor vehicles, defective consumer products, manufacturing machinery, industrial and construction equipment, and other dangerously defective products.
