Keys to the Case:
In a case in which plaintiff suffered a traumatic brain injury and brain aneurysm requiring surgery, the trial court granted summary disposition in favor of the defendant insured on the grounds that plaintiff’s medical conditions were not proximately caused by the accident and plaintiff did not sustain a serious impairment of body function. The defense of the case required a detailed knowledge of plaintiff’s complex pre-accident medical history and the causes, risk factors, and symptoms of traumatic brain injury and brain aneurysm. The motion for summary disposition required a sound knowledge of the substantive and procedural requirements of the Michigan Court Rules, Michigan No-Fault Act, and the Michigan Rules of Evidence.
