Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Benefits – Provider Claim

Motor Vehicle Litigation / December 20, 2010

Court/Case No: Michigan 36th District Court/Case No. 10-106746-GC

Tried/Argued Before: Judge

Demand: $25,000.00

Verdict: $0 - Summary Disposition Granted

Name of Judge(s): Hon. E. Lynise Bryant-Weekes

Keys to the Case:

Aggressive discovery, which ultimately provided the basis for a Motion for Summary Disposition under MCR 2.116(C)(10). The claim was filed by a purported attendant care provider, based upon services allegedly provided to an uninsured pedestrian who was struck by an uninsured vehicle. State Farm was claimed to be responsible for attendant care benefits via the Assigned Claims Facility. Discovery was not permitted as a matter of course because the case was filed in District Court. Lead counsel, Nathan Edmonds, obtained an order permitting discovery early in the case, then vigorously pursued depositions of the provider’s principals as well as written discovery. Plaintiff’s evasive approach to discovery ultimately led to it being unable to effectively oppose Defendant’s (C)(10) Motion.
