Our Livonia car accident lawyers recently filed a First Party Michigan No-Fault and uninsured motorists lawsuit for a client in the Wayne County Circuit Court against Auto Club Insurance Association a/k/a AAA of Michigan. The case arises out of an accident that occurred in the city of Livonia. The client was a driver in a vehicle that was rear-ended by a negligent driver. Our client was stopped at a stop sign and the other driver failed to stop and struck our client’s vehicle from behind.
AAA sent the client for a so-called Independent Medical Examination (IME) with one of their “hired gun” doctors. The doctor, of course, gave opinions to the insurance company with recommendations to terminate no-fault insurance benefits. The lawsuit seeks payment of those benefits.
The client suffered neck and back pain. An MRI of lower back revealed a herniated disk at L4-5. The client remains unable to work, but AAA terminated not only her wage benefits, but all of her other benefits based on the insurance company doctor’s report. Our lawsuit seeks attorney’s fees and interest related to the lawsuit seeking these claims.
The lawsuit also seeks uninsured motorists benefits because the negligent driver did not have car insurance at the time of the accident. Our client had purchased uninsured motorists coverage with her AAA policy. As a result, she is entitled to payment of personal injury damages under that policy provision for her injuries suffered in the accident. No trial date has been set by the court.
