Auto accident lawyer says Michigan Supreme Court case McCormick v. Carrier could make it more fair for people with personal injuries to pursue pain and suffering cases
Auto accident lawyer Steven M. Gursten is featured in a Michigan Lawyers Weekly article on McCormick v. Carrier, a Michigan Supreme Court case that could overturn Kreiner v. Fischer, which has been ravaging the rights of car accident and truck accident victims for years.
In McCormick, the plaintiff suffered a badly fractured ankle that required two surgeries and he took a year off of work. McCormick was thrown out of court because two surgeries and a year off of work was not considered serious enough under Michigan’s personal injury threshold law.
