Michigan No-Fault lawyer on “Post-Kreiner makeover”

New objectively manifested standard – car accident impairment must be visually apparent

Steven M. Gursten is interviewed by Michigan Lawyers Weekly on the standard for determining whether an impairment from an auto accident is “objectively manifested” for purposes of the no-fault act’s “serious impairment of body function” threshold. Steve says the definition for objective manifestation in Netter v. Bowman is very favorable to the plaintiffs bar. This is because it will allow a plaintiff whose injuries would otherwise defy detection or proof by objective testing to satisfy the objective manifestation requirement so long as a doctor can give a medical explanation for what is causing the condition.
