The number of people injured in the event is unclear; however, dispatch has requested emergency medical services. Officers also did not say how seriously the victims were hurt.

Injuries in Detroit Car Crashes

Detroit, MI - Injury-Causing Collision on I-75 at 11 Mile RdAlthough it may be stressful and particularly difficult to deal with the aftermath of an automobile accident in Michigan, there are some easy steps you can take to protect your legal rights.

First, motorists in Michigan should be aware that a police report must be filed if the expenses associated with an accident exceed $1,000. Information about the accident site, any witnesses, and the relevant insurance companies will all be included in the police report.

Even if you think your injuries are minimal after an accident, you should be checked out by a doctor straight soon. Because the symptoms of most injuries might take many hours or days to manifest, even relatively small injuries can have a devastating effect on the victim’s quality of life.

Furthermore, victims who wish to establish that the accident was the source of their injuries should begin keeping detailed records at the first indication of damage or associated symptoms. If your illness worsens or you have any injury after starting therapy, you should see a doctor immediately. In the weeks after your collision, record how frequently the injury happens, how much it costs to treat, how much pain you’re in, and how your treatment plan has evolved.

Keep in mind that you need to engage in both physical and occupational therapy, in addition to frequent visits with your primary care physician, in order to fully heal from an injury. Adherence to medical advice is crucial to the success of your claim and any potential legal action. Accident victims who reject medical care or who continually postpone doctor’s visits, for example, are often told by insurance adjusters in Michigan that they are not eligible for benefits or reimbursement.

Finally, you should consult a lawyer about your rights if you were injured in a vehicle accident that wasn’t your fault.
