Our Michigan car accident lawyers recently received a favorable arbitration award against State Farm Insurance. State Farm wrongfully refused to pay wage loss benefits and other claims to our client, who suffered injuries in an auto accident. He suffered a herniated disc and had radiculopathy symptoms. He was unable to return to work due to his injuries.
State Farm Insurance failed to pay his wage loss claim, despite proper proof of this loss. The parties agreed to submit this matter to binding arbitration and the panel awarded him $85,000, which was the amount of the wage loss claim plus interest and attorney's fees. He still has ongoing medical problems and symptoms from the car accident and is expected to require surgery in the future.
