On August 9, 2015, our Goodman Acker, P.C. client was involved in a T-bone
collision at the intersection of John R. Road and Brockton Road in Madison
Heights, Michigan. The car accident took place at approximately 5:09 p.m.
Our client was driving northbound on John R. Road at Brockton when another
motorist driving southbound on John R. turned into her vehicle. The impact
of the collision caused our client’s vehicle to roll over.
The car accident was investigated by the Madison Heights Police Department.
The driver that turned into our client’s vehicle was attempting
to turn eastbound onto Brockton Road. However, the driver failed to yield
to oncoming traffic and struck our client’s car.
As a result of the crash, our client injured her back, ribs, and shoulder.
Her injuries are permanent and progressive. She had no injuries prior
to the accident.
Our Detroit car accident lawyers have filed a first and third party lawsuit
on behalf of our client in Oakland County Circuit Court. The first party
(PIP) lawsuit seeks compensation from our client’s own auto insurance
company, AAA, for her no-fault benefits. No-fault benefits sought include
payment for her economic damages, such as payment of medical bills and
expenses, household services, and more.
The third party lawsuit seeks compensation for her pain and suffering damages
against the at-fault driver whose actions were a direct cause of our client’s
Some of the arguments our car accident attorneys will use to show the direct
cause include, but are not limited to:
- The other driver was in violation of his duty to not turn his vehicle from
a straight line without first seeing that such movement could be made
- The other driver was in violation of his duty to use the proper lanes in
traveling on said highways;
- The other driver was in violation of his duty to operate a vehicle with
Since the driver of the accident is underinsured and our client had underinsurance
on her own auto insurance policy, we will also be seeking payment for
her pain and suffering damages from AAA as well.
