PROMINENT OUTCOMES

Obtained verdict of no cause of action in a medical provider’s lawsuit for first-party no-fault benefits. The provider claimed that the claimant sustained a brain injury as a result of a motor vehicle accident, which caused an eye condition – “vertical heterophoria.” The provider prescribed fractional prismatic lenses to correct her claimed condition. The defendant insurance company disputed causation, as well as the reasonableness, necessity, and efficaciousness of the at-issue treatment . After a 3-day trial, the jury found that the provider’s treatment was not reasonable or necessary. (July 2018)

Won summary disposition of a $641,361.09 claim for no-fault benefits, based on the statutory “intentional act” defense of MCL 500.3105(4). The Court found that the plaintiff’s intent to kill himself was so evident that not even his blood-alcohol level or testimony from his psychiatry expert regarding his impaired cognitive functioning could defeat summary disposition. (May 2018)

Obtained summary disposition for an automobile insurance company regarding plaintiff’s claim for uninsured and underinsured motorist benefits. The motion for summary disposition was primarily  based on plaintiff’s failure to prove she sustained a “threshold injury” pursuant to McCormick because the diagnostic imaging findings did not demonstrate an objective injury caused by the motor vehicle accident. (January 2018)

Won summary disposition motion in favor of an automobile no-fault insurer. Plaintiff, a medical provider, claimed to be entitled to medical expenses, interest, and fees totaling more than $140,000.00, incurred on behalf of a claimant who was allegedly injured in an automobile accident. Click here for full details. (August 2017)

Successfully argued motion for summary disposition of plaintiff’s dental malpractice claim against defendant dentist, because plaintiff failed to comply with the statutorily mandated procedures for filing a dental malpractice claim. (March 2017)

Successfully obtained summary disposition in a lawsuit seeking no-fault and uninsured motorist benefits. The Judge granted the defendant-insurer’s motion for summary disposition and dismissed the plaintiff’s complaint due to plaintiff’s fraudulent actions. (January 2017)
