Michigan car crash victim meets “serious impairment” threshold

February 16, 2004 by Steven M. Gursten

Auto accident attorney says personal injury lawyers should take advantage of Halucha v. Dore, where injuries affected plaintiff’s normal activities

Auto accident attorney Steven Gursten is interviewed by Michigan Lawyers Weekly on Halucha v. Dore, an Oakland County car accident case that said a driver who sustained personal injuries to her neck, back and tailbone after being rear-ended, suffered a serious impairment of an important body function affecting her ability to lead a normal life.

Personal injury lawyers call the ruling a victory for plaintiffs who fear they can’t meet the serious impairment threshold following a car crash. Said Gursten, “There now exists a body of law that can provide attorneys and the trial court with a clear roadmap as to when a trial judge may grant a plaintiff’s motion for serious impairment.”

Update: The Michigan Supreme Court ruled on McCormick v. Carrier on August 1, 2010. This auto accident lawsuit overturned Kreiner v. Fischer and restored the rights of car accident victims in Michigan.
