What are the Personal Injury Laws of the State of Michigan?

If you receive a personal injury, you have the right to pursue financial compensation through a personal injury lawsuit in Michigan. To do this, you must have evidence that establishes that the other party was negligent or purposefully responsible for your injuries. You can get answers to your questions concerning Michigan’s no-fault benefits, the law, and your rights from Michigan Personal Injury Lawyers like Goldberg, Persky & White P.C.

What are the deadlines for Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Michigan?

Similar to other states, Michigan has a “statute of limitations” that establishes time restrictions on when you can file a lawsuit following an injury. The statute of limitations in Michigan includes:

Case Type Validity
Personal injury Three years
Property Damage Three years
Wrongful Death Up to Six years
Medical malpractice Two years

If your injury claim involves a case against a state agency; you have six months to file your claim and up to two years to launch a lawsuit.

Some limits have variants built in. For instance, if you don’t realize you were injured until after your accident, the three-year period may start on the day you realized you were hurt.

Negligence Lawsuit in Michigan

In Michigan, many personal injury cases seek damages from defendants whose alleged negligence is to blame for the victim’s injuries. To be eligible for monetary damages in these situations, fault, and liability for the injuries must be established beyond a reasonable doubt. The “reasonably prudent person” standard and the four components of negligence are the main tools used by Michigan courts to establish liability. Here are the four types of negligence:

  • Duty: Did the defendant owe the plaintiff a duty of care to protect them from harm?
  • Breach of Duty: Did the accused’s behavior violate this duty?
  • Causation: Were the plaintiff’s injuries caused by the accused’s actions?
  • Damages—Are the plaintiff’s injuries considered compensable damages?

The “reasonably prudent person” principle contrasts the accused’s acts with those of a fictitious, law-abiding person. A personal injury attorney at Goldberg, Persky & White P.C. can offer further details about your specific situation.

“Strict” Liability for Dog Bite/Attack Cases

In Michigan, however, a specific statute (Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. 287.351) makes the owner “strictly liable,” which means that the dog owner is responsible for a personal injury caused by his/her dog regardless of the animal’s previous behavior.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT SHOULD I DO FOLLOWING AN ACCIDENT?

Receiving medical care should be your top concern if you have been injured in an accident. If you aren’t sent to the hospital right away, you should document the accident site with pictures or videos and get the names and contact information of any witnesses. Even if it appears courteous, you shouldn’t accept blame or apologize to anyone else who was involved. Anything you say after an accident could be used against you later. You should schedule a meeting with an attorney to go over your alternatives.

WHAT IF THE ACCIDENT OCCURRED AT WORK?

If you were injured while on your job, you may be eligible for various types of compensation. It may occur that your employer provides you with workers’ compensation benefits. These will pay for some of your missed salary as well as medical costs. For certain kinds of injuries or disabilities, workers’ compensation may also include lump-sum payouts and assistance for vocational rehabilitation. If a third party, other than your employer or a coworker, was to blame for your accident, you may be able to file a separate personal injury claim against that party. You might be entitled to sue the manufacturer, for instance, if defective equipment caused your injury at work.

WHAT DOCUMENTS DO I NEED TO FILE A CLAIM FOR PERSONAL INJURY?

All claim categories normally require personal documentation. The documents required may include your CV, salary slips, medical insurance information, list of medical physicians (if applicable), ID card, driver’s license, and, as needed, X-rays and MRIs.

Documentation relating to the road accidents includes a witness list, an accident report (if possible), the details of the police station you reported to, vehicle registration information, photos of the site and the vehicles’ damage, and witness information and the sequence of the occurrences (order of the events) in cases involving personal injuries.

IF THE CLAIMANT IS A MINOR, WHAT HAPPENS?

Provided the victim is a minor, his parent or guardian, if they have the legal authority, must file the injury claim on behalf of the minor. A curator ad litem, or competent advocate, will be appointed by the court to help the minor with their injury claim and throughout the court proceedings if no parent or guardian is present.

If you or a loved one has been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you can seek compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost income, lost future earning capacity, suffering, and losing life enjoyment. However, please do remember that your claim has time limits, and you usually only have three years from the date of the incident to file a claim.

Please contact our office at 800-799-2234 if you have sustained any kind of injury, or fill out our contact form, and one of our attorneys will review your case at no cost to you.
