Motor Vehicle Litigation / August 29, 2019
Court/Case No: Wayne County Circuit Court/18-014393-NI
Tried/Argued Before: Judge
Verdict: $0 – Motion for summary disposition granted
Name of Judge(s): Honorable Leslie Kim Smith
Keys to the Case:
Intervening Plaintiff, a PLLC, provided extensive amounts of treatment to Plaintiff, including multiple injections and rhizotomies to her spine, as well as injections to her shoulders and knees. The total outstanding bills amounted to $567,000.
Throughout discovery, it was determined that the sole manager of Intervening Plaintiff is a doctor who is not licensed to practice in Michigan. Under the Michigan Limited Liability Company Act, all members/managers of PLLC’s must be licensed or authorized to render the same services as the PLLC. As the clinic was in violation of the Michigan Limited Liability Company Act, the treatment provided to Plaintiff was unlawfully rendered under MCL 500.3157 and Defendant’s Motion for Summary Disposition was granted.
