Detroit, MI (August 9, 2023) – The Oakland County Sheriff’s Department got a call about a pileup on northbound I-75 around 7:30 a.m. on August 9.
Emergency medical services, law enforcement, and the Michigan State Police all showed up by 7:15 a.m. Authorities had to shut down a large section of right lanes at the Rochester Road exit so they could conduct an investigation at the scene. Quickly responding medical personnel assessed the situation and began administering first assistance. The condition of the two or more drivers involved in the accident is unknown.
Local law enforcement is aggressively looking for potential witnesses. The police investigation is ongoing, and further information will be released next week.
The injured and their loved ones are in our thoughts, with best wishes for a full recovery.
Detroit Injuries in Traffic Accidents
Over the last several years, the frequency of vehicle accidents has risen consistently throughout the country and in many individual states. Even though many might be avoided if risky behaviors, including speeding, irresponsible driving, and driver attention, were reduced, accidents nevertheless happen.
However, if the motorist was careless, you may file a claim and seek financial recompense for your injuries and other losses. Victims of car crashes can face long-term physical pain and suffering, as well as significant financial difficulties. Brain injuries, burns, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, internal bleeding, and other potentially deadly or permanent traumas are very commonplace, even in low-velocity or seemingly minor incidents. After suffering a loss or injury through no fault of their own, victims may feel a wide range of negative emotions.
The last thing you need when you’re already struggling to pay the expenses after a car accident that was clearly the fault of another driver is further confusion about Michigan’s personal injury legislation. Insurance adjusters will often try to get out of paying victims the full and reasonable compensation to which they are entitled when victims try to bargain with them on their own.
However, if you consult an experienced attorney, you have a better chance of receiving fair compensation after an accident. In addition, if you find a lawyer who is willing to accept your case on contingency, you won’t have to worry about paying anything up ahead. Your attorney will only be paid if and when your case is resolved in your favor, either via a negotiated settlement or a judgment entered in your favor. Only if you win will the lawyer be paid anything, generally between 30 and 40 percent of the settlement amount.
