Multi-Vehicle Crashes in Detroit

Detroit, MI - Injury-Causing Wreck Closes M-50 at Springville HwyManaging the aftermath of a car crash in Michigan may be stressful and challenging, but there are some simple actions you can take to preserve your legal rights.

First, drivers in Michigan should know that if their collision costs more than $1,000, they must submit a police report. The police report will contain details regarding the scene of the collision, any witnesses, and the insurance companies involved.

And if you’ve been in an accident, no matter how small your injuries seem, you should be checked out by a doctor right soon. When even minor injuries wait hours or days to show symptoms, they may have a catastrophic impact on the victim’s quality of life.

Further, at the first sign of damage or accompanying symptoms, sufferers should start maintaining meticulous records in an effort to show that the accident was the cause of their ailments. If your symptoms persist or worsen after beginning treatment, it’s important to see a doctor. In the weeks after the accident, be sure to keep track of how often the injury flares up, how much it costs, how much pain you’re in, and whether you’ve modified your treatment approach.

Remember that seeing your primary care physician often and engaging in physical and occupational therapy will be crucial to your speedy recovery after an accident. Your ability to make a claim and pursue legal action depends on your willingness to participate in the treatment plan prescribed by your doctor. Insurance adjusters in Michigan often tell people who have been injured in accidents that they are not entitled to compensation if they refuse medical treatment or repeatedly put off seeing a doctor.

The last thing you should do if you’ve been harmed in a car accident that wasn’t your fault is to see a lawyer about your options.
