McCormick v. Carrier: A second chance for auto accident victims in MI?

September 7, 2009 by Steven M. Gursten

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.

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.
