Our car accident Michigan lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of a client who suffered serious neck injuries, back injuries, and head injuries when the driver of the car he was a passenger in ran a red light at an intersection in Toledo, Ohio. The car in which plaintiff was a passenger was violently struck by another car which sent the plaintiff's care airborne into the median of the road.
The passenger injured in the auto accident suffered serious injuries, including but not limited to back injuries, closed head injury, laceration to arm, eye injury, and other economic injuries including loss of wages, earning capacity and medical expenses. He has been treated with physical therapy and spinal injections. He has been disabled from his employment installing business furniture for almost two years as a result of the injuries suffered in the car accident.
We filed a lawsuit against both the negligent driver of the car. Claims against the negligent Michigan driver are for pain and suffering, disability, loss of enjoyment of life and other non-economic injuries. A trial date has not been set by the court.
Passengers injured in an auto accident have several claims for their injuries. First and foremost, if they are a Michigan resident, they are entitled to Michigan No-Fault Insurance benefits, even if they did not have their own insurance police and even if the car accident did not occur in Michigan, just as this case. These benefits entitle the injured passenger to payment of medical expenses for their lifetime, wage loss benefits, replacement benefits, and other great benefits.
The injured Michigan passenger can also sue the negligent driver for his or her personal injuries. This includes claims for pain and suffering, disability, and scars or disfigurement. There are strict limitations for making all of these claims.
