What law school are you going to? You have all the information right there in your hands (McCormick v. Carrier, 487 Mich 2186; 79 NW2d 517). It has to do with the new "threshhold" for injuries under the Michigan No-Fault Act but you really need to read it as it compares the new rule to the old rule. Good luck in class!

This attorney is only licensed in Michigan and does not give legal advice in any other state. All comments are to be considered conversational information and you should not rely on these comments as legal advice or in place of retaining an attorney of our own.

You may want to read the case a few times, and each time you read it, things will become clearer. Good luck with law school.
