Auto Accidents in Michigan
Auto collisions in Michigan take place more often than anyone would like. In 2019, more than 54,000 wrecks took place that caused injuries. On average, over 800 vehicle crashes happen per day in Michigan, or approximately 33 per hour. With over 7 million licensed drivers, not counting those who come from out-of-state, approximately one in every 23 licensed drivers in the Wolverine State will experience a car wreck each year.
Unfortunately, people sustain injuries in accidents all the time. However, sometimes people are hurt due to the negligent actions of others. Sustaining an injury due to another person’s negligence can cause victims an array of problems, including costly medical bills, pain and suffering, and overall, a total hassle. You should not have to suffer through a painful injury and all of the negative consequences that come with it due to the negligent actions of another person. Contact a skilled Michigan personal injury lawyer to see how you can obtain the financial compensation you deserve. Compensation can help cover the costs associated with your wreck, and even pay for non-economic damages like pain and suffering and loss of life enjoyment.
