Detroit’s Multiple-Vehicle Crashes
While dealing with the aftermath of an automobile accident in Michigan may be difficult and stressful, there are some basic steps you can take to protect your legal rights.
First, motorists in Michigan should be aware that a police report is required for each accident with damages above $1,000. The police report will include information on the crash site, eyewitnesses, and insurance companies.
Furthermore, if you’ve been in an accident, you should be checked out by a doctor as quickly as possible, even if your injuries don’t appear serious. When symptoms from even small injuries don’t appear for hours or days, the toll on the victim’s quality of life may be devastating.
In addition, victims should begin keeping detailed records at the earliest evidence of damage or associated symptoms in an attempt to demonstrate that the accident was the source of their diseases. See a doctor if your symptoms don’t improve or if they become worse while taking medication. Be careful to keep note of how frequently your injury flares up, how much it costs to treat, how much pain you’re in, and whether you’ve adjusted your treatment strategy in the weeks following the accident.
Keep in mind that the key to a rapid recovery after an injury is regular visits to your primary care physician and participation in physical and occupational therapy. Your eligibility to submit a claim and take legal action is contingent upon your cooperation with your doctor’s recommended course of treatment. People who have been wounded in incidents in Michigan sometimes hear from insurance adjusters that they will not be compensated if they reject treatment or delay medical attention.
