Bloomberg Business News: Michigan Supreme Court sets new standard in plaintiffs injury lawsuits

August 2, 2010 by Steven M. Gursten

Auto attorney Steve Gursten tells newspaper that McCormick v. Carrier says personal injuries don’t have to be life-long to collect non-economic damages

Bloomberg Business News reports that the Michigan Supreme Court has thrown out a 2004 decision called Kreiner v. Fischer (that ravaged the rights of auto accident victims in the state), and opened the door for more fair lawsuits by people seeking compensation after being injured in auto accidents.

Auto attorney Steve Gursten, partner of Michigan Auto Law, is interviewed. “McCormick v. Carrier is huge,” Gursten said. “The way Michigan law was changing, it was going to eliminate almost everyone who had been seriously injured in a car accident. That was not the intent of the Michigan Legislature.”
