Detroit, MI - Two Teens Injured, One Critical After Head-On Accident on Clarkston Rd near Beach Dr

No one is ever prepared for a traffic accident that has the potential to alter the course of their daily life. Painful medical treatments, time lost at work, and an inability to enjoy social activities can leave you exhausted and wondering whether you possess the right toward financial compensation. If you’re asking yourself this question, it’s in your best interest to consult a skilled and experienced lawyer who can inform you of your right to sue.

  • Breach: The person did not operate their vehicle in a reasonable, legal, or safe manner. 
  • Duty: The person had a duty to safely operate their vehicle in accordance with traffic laws in Michigan
  • Damages: You were injured or incurred other compensable damages due to the accident itself
