The Court of Appeals issued an opinion for publication in Kalvin Candler, et al v Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company of Michigan, ___ Mich App ___ (2017)(Docket No. 332998), a case in which Kalvin Candler was struck by a hit-and-run driver. Mr. Candler was uninsured at the time of the accident and the identity of the driver could not be discerned.

In turn, the claim was assigned to Farm Bureau who eventually paid over $150,000 in PIP benefits.
