Goodman Acker P.C. and our team of Detroit personal injury attorneys have
recently filed an
injury claim for our client, who was hurt severely in a rear-end
car accident last year while traveling on the I-96 Expressway.
Our client, who is a 40-year old mother to six children and professional
entrepreneur, came to a complete stop, as mandated by traffic signals
at the time, while traveling westbound on the I-96 Expressway near Outer
Drive West. The defendant crashed directly into our client’s vehicle
from behind. He did not appear to try to slow his vehicle at all before
the collision. It was found by police investigators later that he was
intoxicated while behind the wheel.
It is expected that evidence of the defendant’s intoxication will
hold true in court and full liability will be placed upon him due to this
gross negligence. Alongside the notes of his inebriation at the time of the accident, we
have provided ample and reasonable evidence to the defendant in request
of payment. He has since denied such liability, and this lawsuit became
necessary to pursue justice and compensation for our client.
Extent of Injuries & Compensation Needed
Our client suffered dramatic and extensive injuries across her body as
a direct result of the collision. Diagnoses concluded that she suffered,
at least, damage to head, neck, shoulders, arms, elbows, wrists, hands,
spinal discs, hips, knees, ankles, and feet. Daily life has become extremely
painful for our client. She has also experienced moments of significant
memory loss due to head injury.
We have filed this lawsuit in Wayne County Circuit Court against the defendant
in pursuit of any and all forms of owed
damages, specifically those related to emotional trauma. We have also filed a
first-party lawsuit against the defendant’s insurance company for
all no-fault personal insurance protection (PIP) benefits, as applicable
and relevant under the No Fault Act. Overall, our client deserves compensation
to pay for her medical bills, special and attendant care, lost wages,
pain and suffering, and replacement services, as well as any interest
amounts, additional costs, and attorney fees.
