Robert Raitt will speak at ICLE’s annual No-Fault Summit about common pitfalls from the plaintiff’s perspective when adjusting a No-Fault PIP claim
Today, Michigan Auto Law trial attorney and partner Robert Raitt will be a presenter and moderator for the second day of the Institute of Continuing Legal Education’s 4th Annual No-Fault Summit. He’ll be one of two speakers during the “Ultimate Rules for Adjusters” discussion, as part of the summit’s “Claims Track” section that he’ll be moderating.
The No-Fault Summit, at The Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, is geared toward No-Fault law litigators on both the plaintiff’s and defense side. It features sessions on uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, how to navigate the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association, proving serious impairment, and new developments in PIP claims.

At Bobby’s “Ultimate Rules for Adjusters” presentation, he’ll be providing advice and insight — from the plaintiff’s perspective — on common pitfalls an auto accident attorney faces when adjusting a first-party No-Fault claim.
He’ll be touching upon:
- Common evidence such as EMS, police and ER reports, and more extensive discovery including medical records in total and plaintiff’s history
- Whether an attorney should give the insured client the benefit of the doubt
- How to be sympathetic before being judgmental
- Case law such as Covenant Medical Center, Inc. v. State Farm, Bahri v. IDS Property Co. and Shelton v. Auto-Owners Insurance Co.
On the defense side, John B. Geen of Scarfone & Geen PC will be offering his own “Ultimate Rules for Adjusters.”
Raitt is an automobile accident attorney of 25 years’ experience. He is also a past president of the Michigan Association for Justice.
