Authored and argued successful Motion for Summary Disposition where the Wayne County Circuit Court recognized the claimant materially misrepresented facts concerning ownership, use and possession of the insured vehicle in his Application for Automobile Insurance. The Court endorsed the formal rescission of the underlying policy, which was deemed void ab initio. Zmijewski used the favorable results to pursue dismissal of multiple lawsuits filed by the claimant’s medical providers at the District Court level. (December 2016)
Obtained Summary Disposition as to claims of uninsured injured party and intervening medical provider, whom the Court agreed had improperly sought PIP Benefits against the insurer represented by Zmijewski. Despite opposition, Zmijewski demonstrated his client was not the highest priority insurer pursuant to MCLA § 500.3114. (December 2016)
