To Getting You The Justice You Deserve
Injuries from auto-collisions can interrupt your life and result in costly hospital bills and expenses that can continue for years. You may have sudden physical limitations or your own emotional injury. You may be caring for a loved one. You may have multiple insurances and have difficulty understanding who should pay. And when your own insurer doesn’t pay the bills as it should, or denies payment for the care you need, that can compound your ability to manage your work, medical care, and your life. These are the issues that can become an unfair burden on you and your family.
At Schefman & Associates, we have dedicated ourselves to helping our clients; we help you figure out the insurance maze, and we win the damages that you are entitled to for your serious injury, wrongful death, or brain injury. We work closely with you during your most challenging time to assist you, to answer your questions, get the medical care needed and get it paid for, and secure the compensation that you are entitled to.
With over 36 years of experience in recovering tens of millions of dollars for our clients, our team is recognized as one of Michigan’s most prominent personal injury and insurance recovery and litigation firms. Our knowledge of the injuries and the defenses, and experience in insurance, combine to offer a synchronized team effort to help you. Our founding attorney and lead trial lawyer, Bryan L. Schefman, uses his decades of experience in both insurance and representing injured clients and medical providers, to protect your rights and defeat the insurance strategy to deny those rights.
“We were referred to Bryan by a family friend and Lawyer in Florida. He & Kati didn’t skip a beat after our accident. Once I was home from the hospital they came to our house and explained everything to me about the process. They took on everything, which not only allowed me to recover from the accident and the surgery, but allowed my husband to focus on everything he had to take on himself, with our kids and around the house, with me not being able to walk. They dealt with all the Insurance matters, the doctor payments, and everything else involved with the accident. Without them, I don’t know that we would’ve been able to get through the last year and a half. My favorite quote is…“People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But People will never forget how you made them feel.” by Maya Angelou… and Bryan & Kati made us feel like we mattered. They have my referral going forward. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for all of your help through, what was, the most difficult thing that we have ever had to go through.
Curt & Heather Weinrauch”

Our Knowledge Of Insurance And The Claims Process Has Produced Substantial Verdicts And Settlements For Injured Victims And Medical Providers
Whether you are a physician, medical group or hospital, after a collision, you are frequently contending with insurance companies for claim payments or reimbursements. Individuals may find themselves liable for the payment of medical charges; Medical professionals stand to lose significant revenue without aggressive representation of their own interests, when an insurance company wrongfully denies or delays payment of a claim or reduces the percent of the reimbursement. As a founder of a statewide Medicaid managed care plan, Mr. Schefman gained a comprehensive knowledge of insurance coverage and operations, payment disputes between payors, and how to achieve fair medical payments to providers. This insight helps protect injury victims and ensure that medical providers get their compensation. Whether the issue concerns benefits coordination, liens of health or ERISA coverage, Medicare, or no-fault insurance, we can help you.
