Eric Scannell v. Progressive
In a 1st party PIP lawsuit, the Wayne County Circuit Court granted our dispositive motion arguing that: (a) Plaintiff was the owner and operator of an uninsured motor vehicle; and (b) Plaintiff committed fraud in obtaining his insurance from Progressive. The Court rejected Plaintiff’s argument that the vehicle involved in the accident was covered as a “replacement auto” under the applicable insurance policy, and concluded the vehicle was uninsured. The motion resulted in over $2 million in claims being summarily dismissed.

The motion resulted in over $2.5 million dollars of claims being dismissed.
