Our Detroit car accident attorneys recently settled a lawsuit for a Chicago man injured in an auto accident in the City of Detroit. The man was travelling through Detroit in his own car when he was struck by another vehicle on the driver's side of the car. The negligent driver was driving too fast and crashed into our client's car.
Michigan laws have specific statutes that address accidents in which a driver is speeding and causes an accident with another automobile. These specific laws include that the at fault driver was negligent for:
- Failing to drive at a careful and prudent speed, having due regard to the traffic, surface, and width of the highway, and other existing conditions, in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. §257.627.
We filed a lawsuit against the negligent driver for the pain and suffering damages suffered by our client. He suffered an injury to his neck which required cervical surgery. The insurance company for the negligent driver paid a settlement in the amount of $47,500 for the compensation claim related to the accident. The medical bills and lost wages were paid separately from the insurance company. The auto accident lawsuit settled prior to trial.
