Patterson crash could raise costly legal complications

Attorney Jeffrey Bussell interviewed in Crain’s Detroit Business on possible lawsuits for Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson

After Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson was injured in a serious car accident, Crain’s Detoit Business sought out the legal advice of attorney Jeffrey Bussell regarding Brooks’ No-Fault insurance costs and potential lawsuits.

Patterson sustained a broken leg and hip, wrist fractures and a head cut, after his car accident at Opdyke Road and Walton Boulevard.

Bussell told Crain’s that it’s likely those personal injury meet the legal threshold for Patterson to sue.

Said Bussell: “You’d have to look at all of the insurance policies affecting the other car and driver, and see if there are any clauses that affect course-of-employment driving as well, to who’s the primary insurer. There could be multiple coverages in play.”
