Auto Negligence / PIP
BSP uses its depth of experience to help insurance companies and self-insured entities navigate the complexities of first-party auto-accident coverage issues under Michigan’s No-Fault Act and defend against claims as they arise. BSP’s auto-coverage practice includes special emphasis on automobile accidents involving rental, commercial, company-owned, and employee-leased vehicles.
In pre-suit matters, BSP provides insightful analysis and advice regarding complicated claims, including formal coverage opinions so that clients can make informed claim-handling decisions. In cases that go to suit, BSP’s lawyers use their skills as trial attorneys to prepare the case for an optimal client outcome, whether it be summary disposition, favorable settlement, or final verdict.
BSP also defends companies and individual insureds against third-party tort claims arising from auto accidents. Examples include defense of a corporation’s employee involved in an accident during the course of employment, company employees driving vehicles leased under a company-lease program, vehicle lessees under short-term rental contracts, and drivers of individually insured vehicles.
BSP represents clients in first- and third-party auto-accident matters at trial and on appeal.
