Michigan Car Wrecks

Car accidents happen in Michigan all the time. Every year, there are more than 300,000 car wrecks in Michigan. About 75,000 people are injured in these collisions and more than 1,000 lose their lives. Unfortunately, negligence causes a large percentage of the traffic accidents in the Wolverine State. Across the United States, more than 90% of accidents are the result of some form of driver negligence. 

Driver negligence comes in many different forms. Some common types are: 

  • Speeding
  • Intoxication
  • Distraction
  • Fatigue

If you have recently been hurt by or lost a loved one in a Michigan accident, you may be feeling devastated and overwhelmed. It is confusing when you are trying to figure out how to move forward from serious injuries or the wrongful death of a family member. In both of these situations, one question is most important: Was the crash caused by another person’s negligent actions? If the answer is yes, you may qualify for significant compensation that can help you move forward from the aftermath of the accident.
