Uninsured Motorist Lawsuit Filed by Ann Arbor Car Accident Lawyer

Our Ann Arbor car accident lawyers recently filed an uninsured motorist lawsuit on behalf of our client who was rear ended while driving on Heweitt Road and Michigan Ave. in Ypsilanti, Michigan. he uninsured motorist lawsuit seeks damages for the pain and suffering, disability, and other personal injury damages caused by the accident. The case was filed in the Washtenaw County Circuit Court in Ann Arbor, Michigan and seeks damages for the pain and suffering, disability, and other personal injury damages caused by the accident.

The impact of the collision was strong as the other driver rear ended our clients vehicle at a very high rate of speed and was given a ticket by the police for driving negligently and not keeping an assured clear distance between the two vehicles. In fact, under Michigan statute, MCL 257.627, all  forbids drivers from driving “at a speed greater than that which will permit a stop within the assured, clear distance ahead.” Therefore, victims who are injured in a Michigan rear ending accident often times have a great case against the negligent driver or driver at fault.

The at fault driver did not have a car insurance policy at the time of the accident. Fortunately, our client had purchased uninsured motorists coverage from his own insurance company, Allstate Insurance Company. This provides him with coverage in the event that he was injured in an auto accident by an uninsured driver. The lawsuit seeks payment of those benefits from the insurance company.

Our client suffered serious injuries in the rear end auto accident, including a thoracic spine fracture with spinal cord compression, a low back injury, and a neck injury. His treating neurosurgeon has recommended a surgery. However, he is proceeding with conservative treatment including spinal injections to try to avoid the need for surgery. No trial date has been set by the court.

Victims injured in rear end accidents do have legal rights and often times, under Michigan law, have a great case against the at fault driver.  To learn more about your legal rights after an Ann Arbor car accident, call our top rated personal injury accident law firm now at (800) 606-1717.  Our top rated Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. lawyers will represent you under our No Fee Promise, which means no legal fees or costs until we win or settle your
