Our auto accident attorneys recently settled an Oscoda Township car accident claim pre-suit for a victim of a rear-end collision. Our client was stopped at a red light at the intersection on US 23 near Lake-to-Lake Road when another driver rear-ended him. The driver was issued a ticket and considered negligent for failing to stop in the assured clear distance.
As a result of the rear-end collision, our client suffered serious injuries in the auto accident and continues to receive treatment for those injuries. Injuries from the crash include a fractured hip with surgery, closed head injury, fractured ribs, fractured pelvis, fractured left acetabulum, multiple rib fractures, and more.
Before the accident he was completely independent and living on his own. Now he has to live with his brother and sister-in-law and requires living assistance.
Our auto accident attorneys filed a claim that sought damages for the victims’ pain and suffering and disability caused by the Oscoda Township collision and the resulting injuries. We were able to settle the claim pre-suit with the at-fault drivers’ insurance company for the full policy limits.
Every insurance policy has a maximum amount that the insurance company will be required to pay, regardless of the severity of the injuries suffered by a victim in an auto accident. This maximum amount is referred to as the “policy limits.” Under Michigan law, a vehicle owner must only maintain the minimum of $20,000 in liability coverage. It is important that if you or someone you know suffers a serious injury that resulted from an accident that you speak to a qualified attorney who can determine the exact amount of your policy limits. Insurance adjusters may not always provide individuals with a truthful disclosure of their policy limits and you want to make sure that you do not miss out on a substantial settlement.
