Redford Township Car Accident Leads to $56,000 Settlement

Facts of the Case

Plaintiffs were travelling at highway speeds on I-96 in Redford Township, Michigan, when their vehicle was struck by the negligent driver’s vehicle, causing the Plaintiffs’ vehicle to spin across several lanes of traffic and strike the retaining wall head-on.

Types of Injuries and Harm Suffered

  • Fracture of the right radius (male plaintiff)
  • Fracture of the sternum (male plaintiff)
  • Fracture of the left fifth metatarsal (female plaintiff)

Other Types of Damages

  • Pain and suffering

Legal Issues in the Case

  • Residual impairments were de minimis for both Plaintiffs
  • Limited medical treatment for non-surgical fractures
  • Return to work nearly immediately – female is a physical therapist at Henry Ford Hospital and male was the Director of Design Experience at The Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village
  • Plaintiffs moved to Florida in November, and did not want to return for any litigation-related events, so we effectively could not file a lawsuit and had to settle for the most offered pre-suit

What We Did To Win The Settlement

No lawsuit was filed, however, a claim was made with the insurance company. I sent Plaintiffs’ MVA-related medical records to the assigned adjuster, and demanded $50,000 (policy limits) on malr’s claim and $20,000 on female’s claim. The adjuster and myself then negotiated a settlement of $44,000.00 on male’s claim and $12,000.00 on female’s claim.
