Nathan litigates cases from inception all the way through trial and appeal. In a recent workers compensation case, he represented a widow whose husband had been killed in a car wreck as he was driving from work to a welding class that his employer asked him to attend. The worker died leaving behind a wife and five kids. The insurance company refused to pay the widow any workers compensation benefits. Nathan won at trial. The insurance company still refused to pay, and instead tried to appeal the judgment. The case matriculated all the way up to the Michigan Supreme Court, which upheld the trial judgment and ruled in the widow’s favor. Lewis v LexaMar Corp, 507 Mich. 998 (2021). Nathan worked on that case for seven years, but ultimately justice was served.
Nathan recently tried a jury trial for auto no-fault benefits. The client was a poor farmer who was in a car wreck and suffered a torn rotator cuff and a broken wrist. She had paid her insurance premiums for 15 years without ever filing a claim. Still, the no-fault insurance company denied her claim, and had the gall to accuse her of fraud. The insurance company maintained a $0 offer throughout the entire case. The jury awarded every penny of no-fault benefits that were owed, totaling $199,586.39, and tacked on money for penalty interest and attorney fees.
