What type of injuries do you need to file a Michigan car accident lawsuit?

There is no specific injury that automatically qualifies as a “serious injury” and is required to file a Michigan car accident lawsuit, however here are some examples of injuries that may qualify:

  • Fractured and broken bones
  • Back and neck injuries, like herniated and bulging discs
  • Nerve damage
  • Injuries that require surgery or substantial treatment
  • Closed head and traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Psychological injuries, like depression and post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Injuries which cause disability from work and other daily activities

Several factors go into determining whether an injury is “serious enough” to make a damages claims.  These include the treatment, the length of treatment, the period of disability, and how your life has been affected overall by the injury.  You should contact our car accident injury lawyers today to see if your case qualifies under Michigan law.
