Our auto accident lawyers in Michigan recently settled a Southfield car accident claim on behalf of a man who suffered serious injuries when the driver of another car ran a red light at the intersection of Southfield Rd. and Eleven 11 Mile Rd. The negligent driver was issued a ticket for disregarding a traffic control device.
Our client suffered serious injuries, including a herniated disc in the cervical spine from the auto accident and has received continuous treatment for those injuries. Fortunately, he was not hospitalized following the crash and was able to return to work.
The claim filed by our law firm sought damages for the pain and suffering and disability caused by the auto accident and resulting injuries. No lawsuit was necessary. Our lawyers were able to negotiate with the claim representative handling the claim for the at fault driver’s insurance company. The representative agreed to a pre-suit settlement of the claim that compensated our client for his injuries.
Running red light accidents are a common cause of serious injury because these crashes are often at high speeds. The unsuspecting car accident victim is not prepared for the collision and often has little or no time to take any action to avoid being struck by the other automobile.
