Macomb Daily: Appeals Court upholds $2.5 million Shelby Township verdict

Attorney Steven Gursten’s case involving an elderly man who was run over on his bicycle by a commercial truck prevails

The Macomb Daily features a story on attorney Steven Gursten’s truck accident case, which was upheld by the Michigan Court of Appeals. In Shekosky v. Allied Excavation, 83-year-old Michael Shekoski was run over and killed by a commercial truck as he attempted to legally cross the street on his bicycle in Macomb County.

Gursten said the affirmation is important because the case demonstrates why transportation companies must ensure the quality of their drivers. Allied hired Bindig without checking his driving record so it didn’t realize he had “multiple violations.” In addition, Bindig’s personnel record at Allied showed he was cited for speeding, improper use of equipment and insubordination, Gursten said.
