Car accident attorney says McCormick v. Carrier won’t cause hike in insurance rates

August 2, 2010 by Steven M. Gursten

Steve Gursten tells The Macomb Daily that new auto law is more fair for personal injury victims – and that the auto insurance industry is misleading the public

The Macomb Daily reports on McCormick v. Carrier, an August 2010 Supreme Court ruling that eased the injury threshold for plaintiffs recovering pain and suffering damages in auto accident cases.

Steve Gursten, car accident attorney and partner of Michigan Auto Law, challenges the insurance industry’s claims that the new auto law will lead to higher auto insurance rates.

He argued that insurance rates have increased despite Kreiner v, Fischer, while the average number of annual claims by motorists have dropped by 54 percent from 1996 to 2008.
