  • Find out defendants policy limits michigan

    my friend died due to negligence of other driver. its been 6 months other party is not releasing the information Michigan. At what point can you find out the other persons policy limits? After suit and a demand is made, or at trial if a settlement...

    Scott’s Answer

    Sometimes an insurance company will not release the policy limits because they have not been able to obtain the consent of their insured (the at fault driver). In this situation I always file suit. Shortly thereafter, you will be able to determine the applicable policy limits.

    If you have any questions, do not hesitate to e-mail me at sreizen@thereizenlawgroup.com or call my office at 248-554-3440

  • Car accident lawsuit against the insurance company

    Scott’s Answer

    Sorry to hear about your friend.
    If the other driver was determined to be at fault, your friend died and the insurance company is only offering $100,000 they are trying to "screw" your friend's family.
    Have your friend's mother call my office at 248-554-3440 or e-mail me at sreizen@thereizenlawgroup.com and I can help them go after the insurance company. I may be able to get them to settle for significantly more without the necessity of filing a lawsuit. And if not, a lawsuit should be filed immediately.
    Whatever she does make sure she does not take the first offer by the insurance company.

    Best of luck.

    And I would be more than happy to help.

    Sincerely,

  • Car accident

    I was hit the person has no insurance, i have uninsured motorist which im suing, the insurance already gave me money for my car. What can I sue the at fault driver for even without no insurance, Damages?negligence? car damages? help

    Scott’s Answer

    You can sue the uninsured motorist for damages. But as the previous poster indicated, it is highly unlikely they have recoverable assets. If you want your "pound of flesh" you can sue them, get a judgment and force them into bankruptcy, potentially. In fact, some policies (UM) require you to sue the at-fault driver.

    Your best advice is to retain a local attorney in Florida to best help you.

    Best of luck.

  • Reasons for a change of venue in civil case (car accident )

    My lawyer defending me in a car accident ( got hit by a semi-truck who crossed lines and hit me head on) told me that there is a change of venue - I was told my lawyer appeal against it but was denied. What are the reasons for it? is it a good or...

    Scott’s Answer

    Venue is the locale where the lawsuit takes place. In Michigan we have specific requirements where the venue can be. Potentially, your attorney may have tried to file in a "Plaintiff friendly" venue, but the necessary statutory requirements were not satisfied. Or, alternatively, it was not convenient. I would follow up with your attorney. This should be a simple answer.

    Best of luck.

  • I was driving a friend's car and got into an accident. The other driver was at fault (he ran a red light).

    The friend who owned the vehicle was in the car and my friend's car was not insured. Can my friend sue the person who caused the accident (he ran a red light) because he totaled my friend's car?

    Scott’s Answer

    I agree with the previous poster.

    Your friend can absolutely sue the driver. It sounds like liability is straightforward. Make sure to get a police report of the accident. However, in order to satisfy the tort threshold, your friend must have a certain level of injuries to meet this baseline.

    Best of luck to your friend.

  • Will the check be a on one check

    A married couple his wife had a slip and fall and her husband got mail saying he gets half there happily married will the check be all in her name

    Scott’s Answer

    This question is difficult to answer based on the limited amount of information you have provided. Unless the spouse has a consortium claim, the check will most likely be made out to the injured party and his/her attorney. I would contact your attorney for a definitive answer.

    Best of luck.
