Michigan auto law: No-Fault insurance claim meets non-economic damages threshold

No-Fault insurance lawyer Steven Gursten interviewed by Michigan Lawyers Weekly on how McDanield v. Hemker will affect car accident victims

No-fault insurance lawyer Steve Gursten is interviewed by Michigan Lawyers Weekly on McDanield v. Hemker, a Michigan Court of Appeals case that held: A woman who claimed the pain from her auto accident-related personal injuries prevented her from leading her normal, pre-car accident life by interfering with her ability to work, garden and engage in athletic activities can have her case for non-economic damages heard by a jury.

Gursten says the decision has provided serious impairment litigation much needed common sense, by clarifying that No-Fault cases should not be dismissed because of an “unrealistic expectation of physician-imposed restrictions.”
