Motor Vehicle Crashes in Michigan
An irresponsible driver may inflict significant injuries to anybody in their vehicle, no matter how cautious they are.
Millions of individuals are hurt yearly in car accidents, and the Great Lakes State is no exception. The Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning estimates that there are more than three million cars on the road in Southeast Michigan alone. The state averages one automobile crash every two minutes. In a single year, around 76,000 people were hurt, and 980 people died in Michigan.
Road accidents may be caused by several things, such as drivers being distracted, driving under the influence, driving recklessly, or disobeying traffic laws. No matter the cause of your car crash, you need legal representation from a professional who will put your needs first.
Many drivers have the false impression that they can manage legal concerns on their own. If you’ve been in a vehicle accident, speaking with an attorney may help you get the money you deserve and protect your rights. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you may need help navigating the legal system and settling your personal injury claim with the insurance company.
There are a few things you should do immediately after a car accident, but speaking with an attorney is crucial. Gathering as much data as possible about the collision is your first order of business.
