Our Michigan drunk driving car accident lawyer settles lawsuit on behalf of our client who was rear ended by a drunk driver in an auto accident. The negligent driver hit our client’s vehicle with such force that the drunken driver’s vehicle actually wedged itself underneath our client’s car.
Our client suffered an injury to his right thumb and left side rib which caused a great deal of chest pain. Due to his rib injury, our client had to undergo a series of tests to rule out any underlying heart problems including cardiac catheterization. Unfortunately, the pain persists to this day and prevents the drunk driving accident victim to return to his normal activities.
Michigan laws have specific statutes that address accidents in which a driver rear-ends a vehicle and causes an accident with another automobile. These specific laws include that the at fault driver was negligent for:
- In overtaking and striking the rear end of another vehicle proceeding in the same direction, in violation of M.L.C.A. Sec. 257.402 and making said defendant prima facie guilty of negligence.
Our drunk driving car accident lawyers use these specific laws on rear-ending as well as other claims for general negligence to prove and win this rear-ending accident case. In addition to rear-ending laws, this type of accident also allowed our attorneys to use the Michigan dram shop laws, as the negligent driver was determined to be driving under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.
