Michigan Car Accidents

The last thing anyone wants to do is be hurt in a car crash. Car accidents are one of the leading causes of serious injuries and death in the United States. On average, there are approximately 6 million car wrecks in the United States per year. About 3 million people sustain injuries each year in these collisions. In Michigan, there are around 300,000 traffic accidents reported every year that injure more than 70,000 people. 

Most car accidents are not serious, and only result in property damage for those involved. However, some crashes do result in injuries and even death for victims. Being hurt in a wreck can be a difficult, overwhelming experience. Injured accident victims often find themselves dealing with an array of problems at once, from serious injuries to financial issues. 

Depending on the cause of a crash, victims may be eligible to collect compensation for the damages they may have endured. Almost all of the auto accidents reported in Michigan and the United States are caused by driver negligence. Many forms of negligence exist, including intoxication, distraction, and fatigue. A personal injury attorney in Michigan may be able to help you collect compensation if you or someone you love has recently been hurt in a crash.
