Our Southfield auto accident attorney recently settled a postal worker lawsuit for injuries suffered in an United States Postal Service Truck – car accident. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the postal employee injured in a car accident. The collision took place on Telegraph Road at the intersection of Twelve Mile Road.
Our client, the U.S. postal worker was driving the Service Truck northbound on Telegraph, when a negligent driver failed to stop at the intersection and ran a red light, striking the passenger side of U.S. Postal Truck. Due to auto accident, the worker suffered serious injuries to her neck and shoulder. She was diagnosed with cervical disc herniation and a cervical facet joint injury secondary to a whiplash injury that resulted in the auto accident. The driver that ran the red light was found negligent and issued a citation for disregarding a traffic signal at the time of the crash.
Since the U.S. Postal Truck accident, our client has not been able to work due to her injuries, as she is not able to drive a vehicle for more than 30 minutes without great discomfort. In addition, our client has been placed on permanent disability that prevents her from returning to work at the USPS in the future.
The Postal worker lawsuit was filed within the Oakland County Circuit Court and settled in the amount of $80,000.00.
Lawsuits that involve a Michigan accident with a U.S. Postal Truck or other federally owned car or vehicle are entirely different than a lawsuit involving two vehicles. There is an entirely different set of laws for filing these types of cases and the failure to comply with those laws and requirements will completely destroy your case.
