Motor Vehicle Accidents in Michigan

Car accidents occur constantly in the state of Michigan. On average, each day, there are approximately 800 car accidents. This number sounds alarming, however, the majority of these wrecks do not result in injuries. Although when they do, victims can face numerous difficulties in trying to get their lives back on track. 

It is estimated that approximately 75,000 people are hurt in car crashes throughout Michigan every year. Drivers can try to avoid being involved in serious accidents by driving at a safe speed while abiding by street signs, lights, and signals, and keeping their attention on the road at all times.

However, thousands of drivers choose to disregard safety regulations and check their social media while driving, etc. causing serious and even deadly car accidents. Driver negligence is the leading cause of auto accidents in Michigan and throughout the United States. Ignoring traffic signals/signs is a dangerous form of driver negligence that contributes to over 90% of car wrecks.
