On 9/30/12, I was driving my ex husbands vehicle that he bought for me but was registered to him. I was struck by a drunk driver who fled the scene, leaving me in the vehicle, trapped. When I awoke, I was covered in blood and both air bags had deployed. I screamed for help but he refused & ran into the woods. I kicked my door open and chased the man through the woods with my Large MagLight. I caught him & hit him from behind with my flashlight and he fought me to let him go. The police witnessed me dragging this man by his shirt out of the woods & down the dirt road to where they were standing. He was arrested & transported to ER for medical attention. I suffered a head injury, neck sprain & a concussion that I am just now recovering from. Car was totaled & medical bills denied by Geico.The accident occurred in Baldwin, MI which is in Lake County. I live in Hudsonville, MI which is in Ottawa County. Do I need to find an attorney that is in the county where the accident took place or can any attorney in Michigan be hired?
