Our Michigan car accident lawyers recently settled a lawsuit on behalf of a Michigan-based middle-aged couple who were injured in a hotel shuttle bus accident while on vacation in Boston, Massachusetts. They were passengers in the shuttle bus of the hotel they were staying in while on vacation. The shuttle bus driver was not paying attention while driving and failed to notice the pedestrian crossing the street in front of the bus until the very last minute. The driver slammed on the brakes and our clients were both propelled out of their seats, striking their bodies on a metal pole and other seats as the bus was not equipped with seat belts. With the assistance of local counsel in Boston, our office filed a lawsuit on behalf of our clients against the hotel for the negligence of the shuttle driver seeking pain and suffering damages caused by their negligence.
The husband’s injuries included multiple bulging discs in his neck and tendinopathy and mild thoracic outlet syndrome of his right shoulder. He attended multiple sessions of physical therapy and received four injections in his shoulder. He missed only 3-4 weeks of work. The wife had multiple bulging discs in her back for which she attended multiple sessions of physical therapy.
Once the lawsuit was filed in Massachusetts, our Michigan attorney was able to engaged the defense attorney in settlement discussions and successfully settled the lawsuit without the need to engage in any depositions or any protracted litigation. The case amicably settled for $30,500.00 for the husband and $17,000.00 for the wife.
