Detroit, MI (September 8, 2023) – On Friday afternoon, September 8, at least two drivers apparently crashed on I-96 in Detroit, resulting in injuries, per local authorities.

On eastbound I-96 at about 12:50 p.m., officers with the Detroit Police Department and troopers with the Michigan State Police were dispatched to the right side of the highway after the Milford Road exit. Detroit authorities shut down the right lanes of traffic, radioed for medical help, and began working on their on-scene investigation.

Despite the presence of first responders, it is not yet known how many persons were hurt in the crash. The DPD has requested that any possible witnesses get in contact with them to assist with the continuing investigation.

Our thoughts go out to the injured victims and their loved ones at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accident Injuries in Detroit

Detroit, MI - I-96 Scene of Injury Collision at Milford RdAn automobile accident might have life-altering consequences. An apparently healthy individual might suddenly lose their ability to support themselves and their family because of the carelessness of other motorists.

To make matters worse, your insurance company will battle you at every point to prevent you from receiving compensation that is rightly yours. These insurance firms will drag out the claims process until you’re so financially desperate that you’ll take a low settlement offer.

However, since Michigan is a “no-fault” state, your insurer will cover you (within reason) regardless of who caused the accident. Legal remedies may include both financial compensation (sometimes known as “First-Party Benefits”) and non-monetary compensation (such as “Pain and Suffering Damages”). This implies that you may seek reimbursement for things like medical costs, missed pay, help with daily tasks, and so on via your own no-fault insurance policy after an accident.

You must have experienced serious impairment of bodily function in order to file a personal injury claim against the driver who caused the car accident. Visible to the naked eye, a “serious impairment of body function” significantly affects the injured person’s capacity to go about their everyday life as they had before the event.

The courts in Michigan also use the principle of comparative fault. This implies that you may be responsible for a portion of any money you recover. You have no legal recourse against the person who caused the accident in Michigan if you are more than 50 percent culpable for it.

Every 10 seconds, a person is hurt or killed in an automobile collision in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The majority of current personal injury lawsuits in American courts stem from auto collisions. You may be eligible for First-Party Benefits (commonly known as monetary compensation) and other forms of compensation (such as pain-and-suffering damages) under the law.
