Michigan Car Wrecks

Car accidents in Michigan happen each and every day. Each year, the Wolverine State sees more than 300,000 collisions. Fortunately, the majority of these wrecks only result in property damage or minor injuries. However, approximately 70,000 people are hurt in car wrecks across the state of Michigan each year, and more than 1,000 victims end up losing their lives due to the severity of their injuries. 

A serious car crash can be devastating for those involved, especially if people lose their lives. Additionally recovering financial compensation can be extremely challenging, especially for those unfamiliar with personal injury law and the laws surrounding wrongful death in Michigan. The majority of those victimized by car accidents are unsure of how to move forward, or how to protect their legal rights. This can make filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim a difficult task.

Depending on the circumstances of the wreck, recovering in other ways may be more difficult.
