Michigan Lawyers Weekly says Kreiner v. Fischer produces few wins for plaintiff auto accident victims, even fewer published car accident cases
Auto accident lawyer Steven M. Gursten is interviewed by Michigan Lawyers Weekly on the binding precedent in the post-Kreiner v. Fischer era. Gursten says courts have missed the mark on the physician-imposed restrictions issue: “The Michigan Supreme Court has imposed a requirement that is not based upon how real, day-to-day medicine is practiced. It has created am unrealistic fantasy world, which tells doctors they have to sit down and write up a list of restrictions for car accident injury victims.”

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