Reporting an accident is an important step in Michigan

Sitting at a stoplight, you weren't thinking about anything bad happening. You were slightly impatient for the light to turn, but you were stopped safely. The driver behind you didn't stop, though, and the next thing you knew you were waking up in a hospital bed.

You found out later that your vehicle ended up in the middle of the intersection. At least two other vehicles struck yours after the initial blow. The doctor tells you you're lucky to be alive.

It will take surgeries and time to heal. Fortunately, you can make a claim for compensation soon.

Michigan is a no-fault insurance state, but you do have to file an accident report. Since you were hospitalized soon after the accident, it's likely a report was taken and filed already. If the police have not been to the hospital to talk to you, it would be wise to reach out to them. They may want to take a statement now that you are no longer at risk.

Crashes have to be reported when someone is injured or killed. Any damage over $1,000 also requires a police report. Failing to report an accident with these factors can result in a hit-and-run charge.

In your case, it's likely that everything has been taken care of for you. You should still request a copy of the police report to review what they've recorded. Your attorney needs to see this report in case of having to change information in it or needing to pursue a claim directly against the driver responsible for your injuries.
