Head-On Collisions in Michigan

Cato Twp, MI - Woman Killed, Child Injured in Head-On Crash on M-46

A head-on collision is more likely than other collisions to result in fatal injuries. Head-on collisions are among the deadliest, with a death rate of over 58%. Despite accounting for less than 2% of all reported traffic accidents, they are responsible for more than 10% of all annual road fatalities. The most common cause of these collisions is careless or distracted drivers who swerve into opposing lanes of traffic.

In order to maximize the value of their damage claim, injured plaintiffs must make the right decisions in the moments following an accident. Many victims are unsure how to get the compensation they need after a serious accident. As a result, they may feel isolated and befuddled. When people who have been injured attempt to fight a large insurance company on their own, they frequently encounter roadblocks and other issues. This only adds to the stress and frustration of the situation. Victims of car accidents may be able to speak with a Cato Township car accident lawyer to learn more about their legal rights and options for filing a claim and receiving just compensation in some cases.
