When you are injured as a result of another person, company, or entity’s negligence, you have the right to take legal action. A personal injury claim seeks financial compensation for economic and non-economic losses sustained as a result of someone else’s careless, reckless, or intentional actions. Similarly, a wrongful death suit seeks compensation for the surviving family members, loved ones, and heirs of someone who is killed as a result of negligence.

Our firm handles a wide range of personal injury cases, from motor vehicle accidents to defective products.

What is the Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury in Michigan?
All civil lawsuits, including personal injury claims, are affected by a statute of limitations that prevents the plaintiff from filing a lawsuit after a certain amount of time has passed. A statute of limitations is designed to prevent unjust lawsuits, but it can also inhibit injured people from getting the compensation they deserve.
All personal injury and wrongful death claims in Michigan have a three-year statute of limitations that begins at the time the injury or death occurred. Failure to file the initial complaint within this time period will almost certainly result in a dismissal of the case.
Exceptions to the statute of limitations are rare, but can be obtained in the following cases:
- The victim is in a condition of mental derangement (insanity) that prevents them from fully comprehending their rights.
- The plaintiff was underage (under 18) at the time of the injury.
- The defendant leaves the state and is not available to be served.
Is it Important to Go to the Doctor After an Accident?
Being involved in any type of accident is often overwhelming. If you are injured, it is important that you seek medical attention right away. Even if you believe you did not sustain serious injuries, it is still important that you see a doctor after the accident. In some cases, you may be in shock immediately after the accident and not realize the full extent of your injuries. In other instances, injuries may not appear until hours or even days after the accident.
It is always wise to seek medical treatment after the accident if you think you may need to pursue a personal injury claim. This can go a long way in establishing that you were, in fact, injured.
