Won summary disposition in Genesee County Circuit Court in first-party no-fault benefit case. Plaintiff claimed benefits arising out of a motor vehicle accident, including medical expenses, lost wages, and household services. Plaintiff was employed as a chiropractor at his wife’s chiropractor business, and treated with his wife following the accident. The documentation submitted by Plaintiff in support of his claims exposed fraud in his claim for lost wages and household services. A motion for summary disposition was filed on behalf of the insurer arguing plaintiff’s claims were fraudulent under the Michigan Court of Appeals case Bahri v IDS Property Casualty Insurance Co., 308 Mich App 420 (2014) The Court agreed and dismissed Plaintiff’s claims.
