Court/Case No: Wayne County Circuit Court, 15-013525-NF
Tried/Argued Before: Judge
Verdict: No Cause of Action
Name of Judge(s): Honorable John A. Murphy
Keys to the Case:
Plaintiff was involved in a motor vehicle accident and alleged to have sustained injuries to her neck, back, hands, and head as a result of the accident. She filed suit seeking payment of medical expenses and household services.
Defendant disputed that the minor motor vehicle accident caused the extensive injuries alleged. Defendant further asserted that the treatment Plaintiff received following the accident was neither reasonable nor necessary for her care, recovery, or rehabilitation for injuries sustained in the accident.
Defendant successfully utilized Plaintiff’s pre-accident medical and Social Security Disability records to refute the relatedness of the injuries to the accident.
Ultimately, Plaintiff’s household services claims were dismissed by directed verdict. No cause of action was found for the remainder of the claims.
