Saginaw Car Accident Attorney Files Neck & Back Injury Lawsuit

Comments (0)

Our Saginaw car accident attorneys recently filed lawsuit for a client who was injured in a rear-end auto accident.  She was driving her car when she was struck from behind by another car travelling at a high rate of speed.  The other driver received a traffic ticket for failing to stop in assured clear distance ahead.  Our client suffered serious injuries in the accident.

Michigan law provides a special rules for dealing with rear end accident. The overall effect of these two ruling is that someone who is injured in a Michigan rear end car accident usually has a good case.  These laws include, MCL 257.402, which provides that drivers who hit the rear end of a car "shall be deemed prima facie guilty of negligence." That means that Michigan law creates a presumption that the person who hit the rear end of another car is at fault for the accident and guilty of negligence.

The other ruling, MCL 257.627, provides that all drivers must drive "at a careful and prudent speed, not greater than nor less than is reasonable and proper, having due regard to the traffic, surface, and width of the highway and of any other condition then existing."

The auto accident caused serious injuries to our client.  She suffered a neck injury, including herniated discs at C5-6 and C6-7.  She also suffered a shoulder injury and aggravation of back injury.  She underwent extensive treatment for these injuries and continues to have pain and disability from her injuries.

We filed her car accident lawsuit in the Saginaw County Circuit Court in Saginaw, Michigan against the negligent driver.  The suit seeks compensation for her pain and suffering and her disability result from the crash.  A claim was also brought against her own insurance company, Farm Bureau Insurance, for underinsured motorists benefits.  No trial date has been set by the court.
