Attorneys Lauren A. Frederick and Erin J. Rodenhouse obtained summary disposition on a plaintiff’s claim for vocational rehabilitation expenses in a PIP case. Plaintiff claimed that his no-fault insurer was liable for his college tuition and book expenses because they constituted allowable expenses under the no-fault act. The no-fault insurer filed a motion for summary disposition arguing that plaintiff failed to prove that the at-issue expenses were reasonably necessary for his care, recovery, or rehabilitation, as he didn’t present any objective evidence that the expenses were necessary to restore him to his pre-accident condition. Judge Gatti of the Macomb County Circuit Court agreed and dismissed the plaintiff’s claim.
