First Party (PIP)
Colvin v. Trumbull Insurance Company

Court/Case No: Michigan Court of Appeals/336640

Tried/Argued Before: Judge

Demand: $86,000.00

Verdict: $0.00 Summary Disposition granted

Name of Judge(s): Honorable Cynthia Diane Stephens, Christopher Murray, and Michael Riordan

Keys to the Case:

Detailed briefing, thorough research, and expertise in interpreting the No-Fault Act and recent precedents such as Barnes v Farmers Ins Exchange, 308 Mich App 1 (2014) enabled defense counsel to establish that the plaintiff’s failure to insure his own motor vehicle was, under MCL 500.3113(b), fatal to his claim for PIP benefits, where the plaintiff was injured while an occupant of that vehicle and the only insurance was obtained by someone without an ownership interest in it.

Defense SW attorney(s) Involved in Case: Drew Broaddus and John Weston
