Geherin Law Group Discusses Medical Suspension Appeals in Michigan

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- If you suffer from a medical condition that affects your ability to drive safely, the Michigan Secretary of State can suspend, restrict or even revoke your driving privileges.  Typical medical conditions leading to intervention include the following:  Epilepsy/seizure disorders; glaucoma/cataracts/eyesight illnesses; hearing loss; physical/dexterity disabilities.  The state usually finds out about medical issues from a physician, or from a police officer who has cited the driver or investigated an accident, or even from concerned family members.

The Secretary of State will often call the driver in for a Reexamination procedure to determine his or her fitness to drive. These Reexaminations often include a requirement that the driver produce medical records and/or a physician's statement attesting to the patient's ability to drive safely (or lack thereof). The driver is often given eyesight, hearing, and driving tests during the Reexamination.  If the Secretary of State feels the condition(s) render the driver unsafe, they can take immediate actions including restricting, suspending or revoking privileges.
