“Democratic News” website talks about restoring rights of car accident victims after Michigan Supreme Court ruling McCormick v. Carrier
From time to time, I try to share the posts of real people affected by car accidents, IME doctors or No- Fault insurance. These blogs include posts from real accident victims I’ve been able to help and observations from people – some clients, some not – about how they’ve been treated by auto insurance companies or a claims adjuster, etc.
Today, I’m sharing a post from a concerned Michigan resident who posted about the state’s car accident law changing last month with the Michigan Supreme Court ruling on McCormick v. Carrier. As of late, I’ve certainly been sharing my own viewpoint as a Michigan personal injury lawyer. But it’s important to see how this significant law change affects the lives of real people, and how they were impacted by Michigan’s old car accident law (the nation’s harshest) before it was overturned on August 1, 2010.
Michigan residents: Told you have no case by a personal injury lawyer after a car accident?
This post is from a website called democraticunderground.com: Please pass this on to anyone that has been the victim of an auto accident.
“In the last three years, that is. Thanks to the addition of Diane Hathaway to the Michigan Supreme Court, the court came to its senses on 7/31 and lowered the (personal injury) “Threshold” for victims in auto crashes (with McCormick v. Carrier).
This comes five years too late for yours truly, who got screwed in the settlement following that tragic crash on I-69 eight years ago last March. It all started with the changes in the No-Fault law in 1996 under the regime of Gov. Big Turd and his band of insurance industry goons. It got worse for victims after a court decision (Kreiner v. Fischer) in 2004. Now victims have a better chance to receive compensation resembling what one would get in most other states.
I hope that in some small way my rants about the insurance lobby in this state had something to do with this. I hope NO ONE ever has to go through what I went through.”
Thanks for the comment, and thanks for helping spread the word about the restored rights for auto accident personal injury victims like yourself. We at Michigan Auto Law appreciate your awareness of insurance company abuse in Michigan. It looks like McCormick v. Carrier will help get us on the right track.
