Michigan Auto Law attorneys recovers top reported auto settlement in 2012 for pedestrian crash

February 1, 2013 by Steven M. Gursten

$1.25 million settlement for pedestrian struck by car

Last week, I wrote about our top-reported auto accident trial verdict and truck accident trial verdict,  according to the Michigan Lawyers Weekly year-end list of the top verdicts and settlements. Our own auto lawyers also received the top reported personal injury settlement in 2012, again according to the compilation of highest personal injury settlements by the newspaper.  The settlement stems from a pedestrian-motor vehicle crash.

Here’s more information about the case:

Michigan Auto Law attorneys received a $1.25 million settlement for a man who was struck by a car as he was legally crossing the street on foot.

Our client sustained catastrophic injuries including a fractured skull, and leg and neck injuries. After the accident, he could no longer care for himself and live alone. Now he lives as a resident in a brain injury therapy center.

The defense contended that the plaintiff was mentally ill, and was trying to commit suicide when the accident occurred.

Here’s the full story as it appeared in Michigan Lawyers Weekly: Pedestrian’s pre-accident state of mental health questioned

I write of this not because of the settlement itself, but because of all of our honors for verdicts and settlements and of all of our legal awards, none are important in and of themselves.  They are only important because they show that our auto lawyers do the absolute best they can to serve and protect the clients we are entrusted with protecting.
