Our Wayne County auto accident lawyers recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of a woman who suffered serious injuries in a Southgate car accident. Our client was travelling eastbound on Eureka Rd. in Southgate, when a car being driven by the defendant suddenly turned into her path from a restaurant parking lot.
She was taken to Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital where it was noted that she had suffered injuries to her foot. The injuries suffered included multiple fractures to her right foot along with ligament damage, and the resulting pain and functional limitations. Due to her fracture injuries, continuous treatment is required and she is unable to return to work. In addition, our client also requires assistance performing household duties as she is not able to perform them herself.
Our top rated car accident lawyers in Michigan filed a lawsuit against the negligent driver on behalf of our client’s injuries. The lawsuit seeks damages for her pain and suffering and disability caused in the Southgate auto accident, also known as non-economic damages. Non-economic damages generally include compensation for:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Fright and shock
- Denial of social pleasure and enjoyments
- Embarrassment, humiliation or mortification
We also filed a 1st Party Michigan no-fault benefit claim against her own auto insurance company, Auto-Owners Insurance, after they repeatedly denied and failed to pay her owed benefits, including household chores/replacement services.
The lawsuit was filed in the Wayne County Circuit Court. No trial date has been set by the court.
