A U.S. Postal Worker auto accident settlement for $80,000.00 was recently settled by our top rated car accident attorneys at the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. The lawsuit arose out of a Southfield, Michigan U.S. Postal Truck – auto accident that caused serious injuries to our client, a USPS employee.
Injuries suffered in the crash, included serious injuries to the neck and shoulder. Our client had to undergo treatment for her injuries which was done under the Federal Worker’s Compensation Act at Concentra. The doctors at Concentra permanently disabled the mail carrier and gave her permanent restrictions that will prevent her from returning to work at the United States Postal Service in the future.
Lawsuits that involve a Michigan accident with a U.S. Postal Truck or other federally owned car or vehicle are entirely different than a lawsuit involving two vehicles. There is an entirely different set of laws for filing these types of cases and the failure to comply with those laws and requirements will completely destroy your case.
Liability was clear in the auto accident as the other driver was deemed negligent and caused the accident. The negligent driver failed to stop at a traffic signal and ran a red light at the intersection of Telegraph Road and Twelve Mile Road striking the mail carrier’s passenger side of the Postal Service Truck.
Our car accident attorneys filed the lawsuit at the Oakland County Circuit Court and were able to win a settlement of $80,000 for our client.
