March 6, 2014 by Steven M. Gursten

Attorney Todd Berg tells the legal newspaper that the proposed caps on benefits in House Speaker Bolger’s “Substitute for HB 4612” are restrictive

Michigan Lawyers Weekly featured attorney Todd Berg as a legal expert in its recent story on House Speaker Jase Bolger’s latest No Fault “reform” plan, “Substitute for HB 4612.”

The story outlined the myriad problems in the draft plan from a plaintiffs lawyers perspective, and how they would harm auto accident victims and Michigan drivers.

Berg told the newspaper that the language in the new bill adds “so many new layers to what must be proved in order to show you’re entitled to no-fault.”

“Right now whether you’re talking about attendant care, rehabilitation, home modification, vehicle modification, any of those things, there are only two things you need to show right now to get those things covered — are the charges reasonable, and is the product, service or accommodation you’re talking about reasonably necessary to the accident victim’s care, recovery or rehabilitation,” he said.
