Our Michigan auto accident attorneys recently filed a lawsuit for a client who suffered serious injuries in an Ypsilanti car accident. The accident occurred on Hewitt Rd. at Michigan Ave. in Ypsilanti when defendant rear ended our client’s car at a high rate of speed. The police officer gave the Defendant a ticket for failure to stop in assured clear distance. Our client suffered serious injuries in the auto accident.
The defendant driver did not have a car insurance policy at the time of the accident. Fortunately, our client had purchased uninsured motorists coverage from his own insurance company, Allstate Insurance Company. This provides him with coverage in the event that he was injured in an auto accident by an uninsured driver. The lawsuit seeks payment of those benefits from the insurance company.
Our client suffered serious injuries which included a thoracic spine fracture with spinal cord compression, a low back injury, and a neck injury. His treating neurosurgeon has recommended a surgery. However, he is proceeding with conservative treatment including spinal injections to try to avoid the need for surgery.
The uninsured motorist lawsuit seeks damages for the pain and suffering, disability, and other personal injury damages caused by the accident. The case was filed in the Washtenaw County Circuit Court in Ann Arbor, Michigan. No trial date has been set by the court.
