Sheriff, Service Station, State Highway Agency: $2,100,000 Case Evaluation, $500,000 Partial Settlement
The Michigan Department of Transportation, the County Sheriff, and a Service Station were sued because of a serious traffic accident. Our client was a passenger in a sheriff vehicle that spun out in a rainstorm. Internet discovery of Dept. of Transportation engineering data showed the road surface was dangerously worn. Investigation of the vehicle’s maintenance records of the service station showed bad tires were installed shortly before the crash.
