Court/Case No: Macomb County Circuit Court, Case No. 2015-000092-NI
Tried/Argued Before: Judge
Demand: Initial demand of $300,000; last demand of $6,000
Verdict: No cause for action
Name of Judge(s): Honorable James Maceroni
Keys to the Case:
Plaintiff claimed that Defendant caused a rear-end accident on Hall Road that resulted in a serious impairment of a body function under MCL 500.3135. Liability was disputed. Plaintiff argued that he stopped at a stop sign at a turnaround, and turned when traffic was clear. Defendant argued that Plaintiff pulled out on to Hall Road into his right-of-way without stopping at the stop sign and, therefore, he should not be liable for the accident.
The jury unanimously concluded that Defendant was not negligent.
