What We Did to Win the Settlement

Our auto accident lawyers filed a lawsuit in the Oakland County Circuit Court. We took depositions of our client and the defendant. Each of their testimony's placed the blame for the accident on each other.

We also obtained the relevant insurance policy information, as well as medical records and documents from the investigating police department.

To address the injuries at issue, our client attended multiple physical therapy sessions and doctors' appointments. We attended case evaluation, and the panel awared $30,000.

Each party accepted the case evaluation award as a fair resolution given the facts and circumstances of the case. The at-fault driver's insurance company paid the $30,000 settlement.
