Our car injury lawyer recently filed a Michigan no-fault insurance lawsuit against United States Automobile Association, also known as USAA insurance company, for its' failure to pay to our injured clients medical bills, lost wages, and other No-Fault insurance benefits. The lawsuit also included a claim for underinsured motorist benefits (UIM).
In Michigan, the minimum auto insurance liability is only $20,000 per person in an accident. Therefore, many times, individuals have car accident injuries and damages which far exceed the other driver's minimum liability policy of $20,000. In an underinsurance motorist claim, generally, injured persons will have to file a lawsuit against the negligent driver and the owner of the other vehicle involved in the accident, as well as make a claim with their own insurance for the underinsurance motorist coverage.
The car accident case arises out of a pedestrian versus motor vehicle accident that occurred in the city of Hartland. The client was a pedestrian struck by a negligent driver under the influence of prescription medications. The at fault driver drove on the shoulder of the road and hit our client.
The client suffered a traumatic brain injury, as well as an injury to his neck and shoulder. The client underwent neck surgery and has been unable to work ever since.
