Plainfield Twp, MI (December 2, 2021) – A fatal traffic accident happened in Iosco County on the afternoon of December 1. Just before 2:00 p.m., various responders were dispatched to the scene in order to assist those involved. 

Reports show that the crash occurred on M-65 near Rollway Road when a southbound 1993 Jeep driven by a 76-year-old male Alpena resident was involved in a collision with a northbound 2018 Toyota Tacoma driven by a 55-year-old male resident of Caro. 

The 76-year-old male suffered fatal injuries in the accident while the Toyota driver was transported to a medical center in Saginaw with serious but non-fatal injuries. Investigators suspect excess speed to be a contributing factor in the cause of the crash. 

Police in Plainfield continue to investigate the circumstances of the collision. Troopers who responded to the scene of the wreck were assisted by Iosco County Animal Control, the Plainfield Township Fire Department, Iosco County EMS, and the Oscoda Township police. 

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. We hope for the full and fast recovery of the injured victim.

The best thing to do after sustaining a serious injury or injuries in an auto crash is to have a personal injury attorney start their investigation into your case as soon as possible. Most states, including Michigan, have a statute of limitations around personal injury cases of two years, which means if you do not file a personal injury/car accident claim within two years after your wreck, you won’t be able to collect financial compensation for your injuries and losses. 

Perhaps you didn’t even know it was possible to collect financial compensation for injuries suffered in a car crash. However, depending on the circumstances of your wreck, it is entirely possible and highly recommended in order to make the most of your recovery.  You could receive financial compensation for things like lost wages, medical bills, mental health treatment, and even non-economic damages such as the pain and suffering that may have resulted from your injuries/accident.

If your injuries were the result of another driver’s negligent actions, for instance, if the opposing driver involved in your accident was intoxicated, fatigued, or distracted which ultimately led to the accident you were injured in, you could be eligible to collect money through filing a personal injury claim. A personal injury attorney in Michigan will be able to help you to further understand the process surrounding personal injury law, and how you can recover full and fair financial compensation for your injuries and losses.

Injured crash victims are often forced into the hospital for lengthy periods of time in order to fully recover. You may be stuck in in-patient treatment for days, weeks, or even months following your wreck. Sometimes, victims must even undergo years of doctor’s visits, physical therapy, and more, just to ensure that they can get their lives back to normal. Some people must even endure a ‘new normal’ due to their accidents, which can be very strenuous and hard to accept. The physical, financial, and mental consequences of debilitating car accidents are always cumulative, and may not fully present themselves right away.
