Michigan Court of Appeals upholds attorney Steven Gursten’s verdict for an elderly man hit by his bicycle
The state appeals court has upheld a $2.5 million jury verdict for the family of an 83-year-old Shelby Township man who was struck and killed by a truck while riding a bicycle at 22 Mile Road and Van Dyke Avenue in Shelby Township.
The estate of Michael R. Shekoski recently gained the favorable ruling in its case against Allied Excavation Inc., a trucking company, and Michael G. Bindig, the driver. The Macomb Daily interviewed attorney Steven Gursten of Michigan Auto Law about the ruling.
Said Gursten, “I’m especially happy for the family because they are good people and a close-knit family.” He added that the affirmation is important because the case demonstrates why transportation companies must ensure the quality of their drivers.
