Michigan Motor Vehicle Accidents
As of 2016, there are more than 3 million vehicles registered in the state of Michigan. With so many drivers on the roadway, auto accidents happen daily. Many wrecks are only “fender-benders,” that don’t result in injuries or even property damage. Other collisions, however, result in severe or even catastrophic injuries for victims. The worst car crashes are often fatal, accounting for approximately 18% of all accidental deaths in the Wolverine State.
When drivers get behind the wheel intoxicated, distracted, or fatigued, or they choose to drive aggressively or thoughtlessly, they can be held accountable for their actions if they end up causing an accident. Other drivers and vehicle occupants who end up with injuries deserve compensation for their medical costs, lost wages, other out-of-pocket costs, as well as pain and suffering and other non-economic damages.
