Leading Medical Malpractice and Serious Auto Accident Attorney Serving Southeast Michigan for
36 Years

Legal protection that makes a difference in people’s lives
I founded my medical malpractice and serious auto accident firm, Barry J. Gates, Attorney at Law, to carry on my more than 36 years of zealous and compassionate legal advocacy for individuals and their loved ones who have been hurt or killed in Ann Arbor and throughout Southeast Michigan.

Whether you have been victimized by medical malpractice, attorney malpractice, wrongful death or serious injury from an automobile accident or other type of accident case, I am committed to getting you through the process of obtaining justice in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible. I am determined to provide you with the quality service, respect and personal attention you deserve.

I am a hands-on attorney who personally attends to all factors that can influence the success of your case, managing everything from evaluation and research to court appearances. I stay abreast of changes in the law and meld legal and medical considerations to craft effective strategies. My objective is to give you the best chance of winning, no matter how complex the case. I have handled thousands of cases and give each client the same focus I would give to a close friend.

Based on my more than 36 years of hard and winning work, I have earned respect and referrals from both clients and peers. I am AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell® — a distinction signifying the highest quality legal work, professionalism and ethical standards —  and am listed in Super Lawyers and The Best Lawyers in America.

I have the legal skill and medical knowledge to fight vigorously for just compensation for my injured and bereaved clients in the following types of cases:

  • Medical malpractice ― Medical errors by healthcare professionals occur in many settings, including hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices, same-day surgery centers and nursing homes. Such medical errors may involve failure to diagnose cancer or actions that result in catastrophic permanent injury and even death. I fight to recover financial compensation for you or your loved one’s injury or loss of life.
  • Serious auto accidents ― Road and traffic accidents are the basis of the most common personal injury cases. If you have suffered any kind of injury ― from spinal cord or brain and head injuries to amputations, broken bones, herniated discs or less serious injuries ― due to the reckless and negligent actions of a driver in any kind of vehicle, I am ready to help you. I attempt to settle your claim out of court by negotiating with your insurance company, those who caused your injury and any responsible third party. If a settlement cannot be reached, I advise you on the feasibility of filing a lawsuit and fight to win you just compensation in court.
