Our Michigan auto accident attorneys recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of a 12 year old client who suffered serious injuries in a Clam Lake Township car accident while riding as a passenger in the back seat of a family friend’s motor vehicle. The accident occurred on M-115 near Sunnyside Drive in Clam Lake Township when the family friend attempted an illegal U-turn with her motor vehicle, and in the process was hit at a high rate of speed by another vehicle that was being operated by a drunk driver. Our client suffered serious injuries in the auto accident.
It is unknown whether the family friend or the drunk driver had insurance on their motor vehicles. Fortunately, our client’s mother had purchased uninsured and underinsured motorists coverage from her own insurance company, MEEMIC Insurance Company. This provides our client with coverage in the event that he was injured in an auto accident by an uninsured motorist or by an underinsured motorist without sufficient policy limits to fairly compensate our client for his injuries. This lawsuit seeks payment of damages from the insurers of the operators and owners of the at fault motor vehicles, or alternatively if these persons were uninsured or underinsured, seeks payment of these benefits from MEEMIC Insurance Company.
Our client suffered serious injuries which included right cheek and upper lip edema, a left scalp hematoma, lacerations in his mouth, a closed head injury and fractured nasal bone. His treatment has included speech and language therapy, psychological counseling, accommodations at school and the prescribing of 24 hour attendant care.
This lawsuit seeks damages for the pain and suffering, disability, and other personal injury damages caused by the accident. The case was filed in the Macomb County Circuit Court in Detroit, Michigan. No trial date has been set by the court.
