Facts of the Case

This case arises out of a devastating and severe rear-end collision that occurred on August 12, 2015, in the city of Farmington Hills at M-5 and Grand River Ave. Defendant was exiting the M-5 expressway, at a high rate of speed, at the Grand River exit when he lost control of his 2016 red Ford F150 Pickup truck and slammed into the rear of Plaintiff’s minivan. Plaintiff’s Town & Country van was stopped when she was hit. This collision was so violent that it broke Plaintiff’s seat and caused Plaintiff’s van to roll onto its side. The force of the collision ejected Plaintiff from her van onto the roadway.

Legal Issues in the Case

  • Did client’s injuries constitute a serious impairment of important bodily function?
  • Did client’s scarring amount to serious permanent disfigurement?
  • Was client required to submit her case against AAA for underinsured motorist benefits to binding arbitration?

What We Did To Win The Settlement

We immediately filed a lawsuit in Oakland County Circuit Court against the defendant driver for negligence and against AAA Insurance Company for underinsured motorist benefits. We obtained professional photographs of our client’s scarring and obtained all of our client’s medical records. We resolved the case against the at-fault driver in an early settlement. We dismissed the lawsuit in Oakland County Circuit Court in favor of binding arbitration of the underinsured motorist benefit’s claims.
