Auto Accidents in Michigan

Charlotte, MI - One Killed, One Seriously Injured After Car Wreck on I-69 S near Cochran Rd

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. 

Charlotte Car Crash Lawyers

Many individuals have suffered some kind of personal injury in their life. More than 4 million personal injury cases were recorded in the United States in 2005. In over 1 million of these cases, the victim was forced to take time off of work to recover. When this happens, victims often suffer even more consequences from their injuries, ranging from physical, emotional, to financial in nature. Hundreds of thousands of these cases are as simple as just slip-and-falls. Sadly, more than 5,000 of these personal injuries ended in fatalities for those involved.
