Study finds skyrocketing number of severely injured car-crash patients have lost care
A follow-up study has found that the number of severely injured car crash survivors in Michigan who’ve lost medical care has skyrocketed, due to changes to the state’s 2019 auto no-fault law.
In January, the first phase of a study by the Michigan Public Health Institute found 1,500 severely injured car crash patients had lost medically necessary care since last summer.
Now, the institute said, that number has more than quadrupled. The study also found more than 4,000 workers in the care industry lost their jobs.
