Roseville, MI (December 3, 2023) - On Sunday afternoon at approximately 3:00 p.m., one driver was cited and an officer was hurt following a vehicle wreck, per local authorities who responded to the scene.

The Roseville Police Department responded to westbound I-94 at 13 Mile Road after fielding witness calls about the wreck. A Metro-North trooper was parked on the left shoulder of I-94 and was out of his vehicle investigating a separate accident when a Ford Ranger driven by an 80-year-old resident of Detroit lost control and sideswiped the patrol vehicle. EMTs responded and assessed the officer for injuries, though they are expected to recover. The at-fault driver was cited, but no further details were released.

We are thinking of the injured victims and their loved ones. We hope for their full recovery.

Injury-Causing Collisions in Michigan

Roseville, MI - Officer Hurt in Accident on I-94 at 13 Mile RdVehicle accidents are a leading cause of injury and death in Michigan and around the nation every day. Tragically, these occurrences affect everyone. That is to say, law enforcement and emergency personnel are not safe. These responders are vulnerable to injury in car accidents just like anybody else, whether they occur during a routine traffic stop, a high-speed pursuit, or a little collision on the highway.

No matter what the source of a responder's workplace injury is, Michigan's no-fault car insurance and workers' compensation statutes protect. Through one of these channels, the injured person may recover damages to cover things like medical expenses and lost wages.

In addition, there are circumstances under which a first responder may be allowed to launch a civil complaint against the negligent motorist. If a police officer is hurt in an auto accident in Michigan and makes a claim against the at-fault driver, the victim's financial recovery will be capped at whatever the at-fault driver's insurance policy allows.

For example, a police officer may be eligible to submit a claim for "underinsured" or "uninsured" motorist status if he or she sustains injuries in an accident caused by a driver who does not have insurance or who does not have enough insurance to cover all of the officer's losses. If the police agency does not get uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage for its patrol vehicles, the victim may have limited legal options.
