The car accident attorneys at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of one of our Lansing auto injury clients. Our client was a passenger in a vehicle travelling eastbound on East Shiawassee Road. The defendant driver ran a red light and collided with the vehicle our client was riding passenger in.
As a result of the collision, he suffered several serious injuries and was taken by ambulance to the local hospital. His injuries included pain in the neck, back, and shoulder regions, and ligament tears in the right arm. He received continuous treatment for those injuries, however he had to undergo surgical intervention as part of his treatment.
In addition, he has been disabled from his job, requires assistance performing household duties and requires attendant care benefits. Attendant care services commonly include, but are not limited to preparing meals and feeding, assistance with hygiene, such as dressing and bathing, attending to wounds, assistance with medication, providing transportation to and from medical appointments, and supervision and monitoring.
Our expert attorneys filed the claim on behalf of the Lansing auto accident victim in the Ingham County Circuit Court. No trial date has been set by the court.
Sue Driver That Ran Red Light
One of the most frequent questions we get from auto accident victims is if they can sue the driver that ran a red light and caused you injury. The answer to that question is yes. Unfortunately, running red light collisions are a common cause of serious injury and cases that we frequently handle. Under Michigan statute, an injured person can sue the negligent driver. This statute include:
- Failing to obey the instructions of the traffic control signal located at the aforesaid intersection which did then and there show red against the passage of the drive, in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. §257.612.
In this particular case that our attorneys recently filed, our client suffered several significant injuries from a red light crash. In addition to using this law, our expert lawyers will use other claims for general negligence against the driver to prove and win his case.
