Plaintiff: Brian Bone
Defendant: Progressive Marathon Insurance Company
Case Number: 16-009370-NF
Judge: Patricia Perez Fresard

Date of Settlement: June 29, 2017

Facts of the Case

Our client was the driver of a motor vehicle involved in a motor vehicle accident in Mount Morris, Michigan wherein he sustained significant bodily injury.

Our client had auto insurance, which made such insurer responsible for our client's no-fault benefits incurred subsequent to the accident, including but not limited to his lost wages and medical expenses, as well as attendant care and household services provided by his girlfriend.

While Progressive had been paying attendant care, they were paying between 6 to 12 hours a day less than the services that were actually being rendered by his girlfriend.

Types of Injuries and Harm Suffered

  • Right tibia metaphyseal fracture
  • Damaged septum

Other Types of Damages

  • Wage loss
  • Medical expenses
  • Attendant care
  • Household services

Legal Issues in the Case

  • What is the proper wage loss rate?
  • Were the claimed medical expenses reasonable and necessary?
  • How much compensation should be paid in a settlement?

What We Did to Win the Settlement

Our Michigan No-Fault lawyers filed a lawsuit in the Wayne County Circuit Court. Depositions of our client and his girlfriend were taken. Also, the pertinent records as they relate to our client's employment, medical bills and records, and attendant care and household service logs were gathered to establish the basis for the claims.

After participating in discovery, the parties agreed to attend a mediation in an effort to resolve the case. At the mediation, with negotiations and assistance from the mediator, the parties arrived at a settlement of $35,000.00, which provided compensation for benefits owed to date.
