Our Oakland County, Michigan car accident lawyers recently settled a car accident claim on behalf of a 78 year old client who was injured when her husband negligently drove off of the roadway and crashed into a tree stump causing the car to rollover. No tickets were issued for the crash. Our auto accident attorneys represented the wife against her husband for negligence.
The crash occurred on Union Lake Rd. near the intersection with Glasgow Rd. in White Lake Township. Our client was riding as a front seat passenger.
Michigan law and our clients’ insurance contract allowed a lawsuit to be filed by the wife. You should review your insurance policy with your insurance agent to ensure that you have this coverage available to you. Be cautious. Some policies of insurance have a “drop down” provision in the policy which reduces the amount of money a family member can receive in a lawsuit against another family member. Usually the drop down is to $20,000.00. You should make sure your policy does not have this dropdown.
As a result of the rollover car accident, the women suffered serious injuries including fractured vertebrae, and a mild traumatic brain injury. She also sustained ongoing back pain, neck pain, dizziness, and vertigo. The injuries required short term in-patient hospitalization and a long recovery, including 50 days in sub-acute in-patient rehabilitation.
The claim sought damages for the pain and suffering and disability caused to the woman as a result of the Oakland County, Michigan car accident. Our experienced lawyers filed a lawsuit, however we were able to win a settlement on our client’s behalf before going to trial.
