WILLIAM RIVARD AND JEFFREY SCHULTZ OBTAIN SUMMARY DISPOSITION ON ISSUE OF THRESHOLD INJURY IN AUTOMOBILE NEGLIGENCE CASE
Lashawnda Davis v. George Perez, et al., Wayne County Circuit Court. Plaintiff filed an automobile negligence lawsuit against our clients, seeking damages for injuries she allegedly sustained in a motor vehicle accident. We filed a Motion for Summary Disposition, arguing that Plaintiff had failed to establish a threshold injury as required by the Michigan no-fault act. The Court agreed, concluding that Plaintiff’s nonspecific MRI findings were insufficient to constitute an objective manifestation of her alleged impairment and that her testimony failed to establish that the accident had affected her ability to lead her normal life. Plaintiff’s lawsuit was dismissed with prejudice.
