Court reverses summary disposition for Allstate regarding PIP benefits
Dustin Stevens, who was legally incapacitated at the time, suffered further injury in a single vehicle collision. He was the driver of an uninsured car registered to his mother. Although he and the mother denied he had permission to use the vehicle, there were other circumstantial pieces of evidence that would imply that he was either buying the car or enjoyed regular use. The trial court granted Allstate summary judgment, however, the Court of Appeals reversed, noting that it was not appropriate for the judge to weigh credibility and decide disputed facts: under our Constitution, the case should have been decided by jurors.
