Dearborn, MI – Car Accident, Injuries Shut Down I-94 at Greenfield

by | Sep 9, 2023 | Car Accidents | 0 comments

Dearborn, MI (September 9, 2023) – Due to a multi-vehicle accident, several lanes of eastbound and westbound I-94 were blocked in Wayne County on Saturday morning, September 9.

Around the exit to Greenfield Road, all eastbound lanes of I-94 were blocked, and at Michigan Avenue, all westbound lanes were closed.

The eastbound closure was declared at 11:45 a.m., while the westbound closure was announced just before 11:00 a.m., both times by the Michigan Department of Transportation.

Although emergency personnel were sent to the scene, it is still unclear how many people were hurt in the collision. Officers with the Dearborn PD have asked that anybody who may have information about this case get in touch with them at this time.

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 Michigan

Dearborn, MI - Car Accident, Injuries Shut Down I-94 at GreenfieldThe consequences of a car crash may be devastating. In reality, a seemingly healthy person may suddenly find themselves unable to provide for themselves or their family due to the reckless actions of other drivers on our roads.

The already difficult road to recovery is exacerbated by an insurance company that fights you at every turn for what is rightfully yours. These insurance companies will intentionally prolong your claim until you are desperate enough to accept a poor settlement offer.

However, as Michigan is a “no-fault” state, your insurance company will cover you regardless of who was at fault for the accident (within certain limits). Financial compensation, often called First-Party Benefits, and non-monetary compensation, such as pain-and-suffering damages, may be available to you under the law. This means that after an accident, you may first turn to your own no-fault insurance for financial compensation for things like medical bills, lost wages, assistance with daily activities, and so on.

To initiate a personal injury claim against the motorist who caused the automobile collision, you need to have suffered a significant reduction in physical function. A “serious impairment of body function” is one that can be seen with the naked eye, and it severely limits the wounded person’s ability to go about their daily lives as they had before the accident.

The notion of comparative blame is also used in Michigan courts. This means that whatever sum you may recover will be reduced by your potential responsibility. However, if you are more than 50 percent responsible for the accident, you have no legal recourse against the driver who caused it in Michigan.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that every 10 seconds, someone is injured or killed in a car crash in the United States. Automobile accidents are the leading cause of personal injury claims filed in American courts today. Financial compensation, also known as First-Party Benefits, and non-monetary compensation, such as pain-and-suffering damages, may be available to you under the law.
