Desilva v Relerford, Lowe and Lowe
Sajid Islam successfully obtained summary disposition of Plaintiff’s claim for third-party damages against his clients. Sajid prepared, filed and argued a Motion for Summary Disposition arguing that there was no genuine issue of material fact that Plaintiff had not sustained a serious impairment of an important body function as a result of the motor vehicle accident at issue. Specifically, it was argued that there was no evidence to suggest that Plaintiff had suffered an objectively manifested impairment, and that Plaintiff’s own treating physicians noted no injury associated with the motor vehicle accident. It was further argued that Plaintiff failed to rebut his Motion for Summary Disposition as required under MCR 2.116(C)(10). Ultimately, the Court granted Sajid’s Motion for Summary Disposition, dismissing Plaintiff’s claims against all three of his clients with prejudice.
