Metro Detroit Injury Lawyers settled a pre-suit car accident case for full policy limits this week after a Metro Detroit woman was struck earlier this year while attempting to cross the street by a vehicle traveling at an excessive rate of speed. Our client was immediately rushed to the emergency room, where she was diagnosed with a severe injury to her knee as well as injuries to her internal organs.
The insurance company for the at-fault driver initially attempted to deny all liability, arguing that our client did not cross at an appropriate crosswalk. Metro Detroit Injury Lawyers attorney Cameron Peralta rebutted that argument with evidence from the accident scene, and stressed the severity of the client’s injuries as evidence that the driver was not obeying the speed limit at the time of the accident. After prolonged negotiations, Metro Detroit Injury Lawyers were able to avoid litigation, reaching a pre-suit settlement for the at-fault driver’s full insurance policy.
