Car Accidents in Michigan
Car wrecks in Michigan happen constantly. Approximately 800 accidents are reported per day. On average, the Wolverine state sees more than 300,000 car crashes per year. Approximately 75,000 people sustain injuries in these wrecks and over 1,000 lose their lives. This year, 2021, 1,083 people lost their lives in Michigan car crashes.
It can be overwhelming and scary to be hurt in a serious crash. While victims are often faced with painful and sometimes crippling injuries, they must also seek medical care for those injuries that can cost a fortune. Recovery periods for serious injuries can sometimes last for days, weeks, or even months, forcing victims out of work and money.
Sometimes emergency surgery is required depending on the severity of the injuries that result from an accident. These circumstances are not only physically and emotionally difficult to deal with, they can also drain a person’s bank account quickly, leaving them with little to no financial resources to get back on their feet. A car crash lawyer in Michigan may be able to help you if you find yourself stuck in a situation of this nature.
