Michigan personal injury attorneys say soft-tissue lawsuits are forced to litigation
Personal injury attorney Steve Gursten tells Michigan Lawyers Weekly that lawyers handling soft-tissue injury claims are gaining lots of courtroom experience – because some insurance companies offer no settlements for soft-tissue cases and force them to trial.
“There is no question I’m a better trial lawyer now because of being forced to try a soft-tissue case,” he said. Gursten’s $1.06 million verdict against Allstate insurance is used as an example, where he says, such cases are simply forcing lawyers to try cases and become more sophisticated.
