Car Accidents in Michigan

Wayne, MI – Lodge Freeway Crash Reported near 8 Mile RdAfter being hurt in a motor vehicle accident, victims have the ability to file a personal injury claim to recover compensation. It is crucial to recognize that Michigan operates on a modified comparative negligence doctrine. According to this law, an individual who bears more than 50% responsibility for their injury is ineligible to seek non-economic damages (often referred to as pain and suffering damages) through legal action.

Despite the limitation on recovering non-economic damages, Michigan's comparative negligence law allows individuals to pursue economic damages (such as medical expenses and lost wages) to the extent that someone else is deemed at fault for the accident causing the victim's injury. It is important to recognize that the amount of compensation that can be recovered for damages will be reduced in proportion to the percentage of fault that was shared by the claimant.
