We were retained to represent State Farm in this action filed by its’ insured for PIP benefits following a motor vehicle accident. During the pendency of the action several medical providers intervened in the case, represented by additional counsel. It was our defense that the spine fusion surgeries and subsequent treatment were not related to the motor vehicle accident and also were not necessary for the insured’s care recover and rehabilitation. We were unable to resolve this matter through case evaluation or facilitation; therefore the matter proceeded to trial. At trial in Macomb County, we explained to the jury that the claims by the insured and medical providers were financially motivated for personal gain.
