Yes you can file a car accident lawsuit if you were hit by a police car in Michigan. In this scenario, the injured police car accident victim would sue the police department for their injuries. Under Michigan law, police officers and police departments do have immunity from lawsuits in most circumstances; however, there are exceptions to these rules. These exceptions include cases in which a police officer is negligent or reckless in the operation of the police vehicle. In order to sue the police department, there must be actual contact between the car with the injury victim and the police vehicle.
