Our Michigan car accident lawyers filed a wrongful death lawsuit arising out of an August 25, 2012 auto accident in Greendale Township, Michigan. The fatal accident lawsuit was filed on behalf of the family of the 19 year old driver killed in the accident. His car was struck by another motorist who was attempting to pass two vehicles on a two-lane highway when she t-boned his vehicle. He suffered significant trauma in the accident and was airlifted to St. Mary’s Hospital trauma center in Saginaw, Michigan, where he later died.
The lawsuit alleges that the defendant driver was exceeding the speed limit as she negligently attempted to pass multiple vehicles. Our client was turning left into a driveway when he was hit broadside on the driver’s side of his car. He was struck on the driver’s side door and had no chance to survive the crash.
The wrongful death car accident lawsuit was filed seeking all damages permitted under the Michigan Wrongful Death Statute. He was survived by his mother, father, and brother.
