Our Warren car accident lawyers at the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. recently filed a hit and run car accident lawsuit on behalf of our client. Our client was a passenger in a vehicle travelling northbound on Mound road, when an unidentified car rear ended our client’s vehicle, causing the car to hit the concrete barrier. The driver of the unidentified car that caused the accident fled the scene.
Our client suffered injuries from the Warren auto accident including a hip fracture requiring surgery and a meniscus tear in his right knee. He was taken to St. John Hospital ER after the accident. As a result of the injuries, he now requires continuous treatment and assistance performing household duties and has difficulties with his activities of daily living.
The lawsuit has been filed against our client’s insurance company, which provided uninsured motorist coverage on the date of the accident. Thus, even though the hit and run driver was never found, our client can still be compensated for his pain and suffering from his own insurance company. The suit also seeks payment of 1st Party benefits from the insurance company after the insurance company terminated his benefits based upon an insurance medical examination. The accident lawsuit was filed in the Macomb County Circuit Court. No trial date has been set by the court.
