Ann Arbor Township Auto Accident Settlement

Our Ann Arbor auto accident lawyers recently settled a lawsuit for a 60 year old woman against the at-fault driver for injuries she suffered in a motor vehicle accident in Ann Arbor Township, Michigan.  Our client was stopped in her motor vehicle behind a stationary line of cars on I-94 when she was rear-ended at a high rate of speed by an underage drunk driver who negligently failed to stop for the line of cars.

The at-fault driver and owner of the at-fault vehicle had insurance on the vehicle.  Given this, we filed a lawsuit against the negligent driver and owner of the at-fault vehicle on behalf of our client for her pain and suffering damages caused by their negligence.

 Our client’s injuries included a closed-head injury and a torn tendon in her shoulder.  She had been treated with months of physical therapy and occupational therapy, among other modalities of treatment.    She was the owner/operator of a small restaurant and also worked with a psychologist.  She was unable to return to work for had been going on two years after the accident. However, the evidence also revealed that our client had pre-existing and cognitive issues for which she was in the midst of a leave of absence from working at the time of the accident.

 Depositions were taken and discovery exchanged between the parties.   The Defendants had an insurance policy limit of a maximum of $50,000.00 applicable to this accident. The case was evaluated at $42,000.00 and the parties agreed to settle for this amount shortly before trial.
