Our pedestrian accident injury lawyers in Michigan recently settled a claim against a drunk driver’s insurance company for $100,000.00. The pedestrian suffered serious injuries in the accident after being struck by a drunk driver. The drunk driver was arrested and sentenced to prison for the accident.
Our client suffered a brain injury in the accident as well spinal fractures and a fractured arm. He required lengthy hospitalization for the injuries. He has not fully recovered.
We filed a lawsuit in the Wayne County Circuit Court located in Detroit, Michigan. We fully investigated a potential claim against any establishment that served the drunk driver with alcohol before the accident, but evidence did not support a Dram Shop claim. The insurance company for the drunk driver paid the settlement. The injured pedestrian’s medical bills and other expenses were paid under a separate insurance policy.
