Toledo Blade: Auto accident lawyer explains the implications of Michigan Supreme Court ruling on car accident victims and their pain and suffering cases

The Toledo Blade interviews Steven Gursten – one of the country’s top auto accident lawyers – on McCormick v. CarrierMcCormick is an August 2010 Michigan Supreme Court decision that overturned Michigan’s previous auto law, Kreiner v. Fischer, which made it virtually impossible for crash victims to collect pain and suffering damages for serious injuries.

Gursten noted that while McCormick will make it easier for plaintiffs to garner awards for pain and suffering, the exact level has not been determined. The court determined it will be on a “case by case basis,” he said, and the definition will narrow as cases are decided.
