Injury-Causing Accidents in Detroit

Detroit, MI - I-696 Scene of Car Wreck, Injuries at GreenfieldThe thousands of automobiles that pass through Detroit and other large cities in Michigan every day produce congestion and unsafe driving conditions. It’s possible that people are late for work because they are listening to the radio, taking a phone call, or texting. Tragic vehicle accidents are common in such weather.

It’s no surprise that Michigan has a high rate of automotive accidents, with roughly seven million vehicles on the road annually. During the morning and evening rush hours on weekdays, traffic in Detroit is heavy, as it is in other major cities across the world. Furthermore, when there is a catastrophic accident involving many motor vehicles, the media generally emphasizes numerous concerns, such as drunk driving, inattentive driving, and so on.

Despite the fact that texting while driving is banned in Michigan, there are still drivers who do it. People who are engaged in car accidents suffer not only bodily injuries but also severe psychological trauma. In the worst-case scenario, people die, and their loved ones are left to deal with the consequences. In a recent year, more than 300,000 such accidents were reported to the Michigan State Police in the Detroit region, with more than 54,000 of them happening in Wayne County alone.

If you’ve been hurt in a vehicle accident and are trying to make ends meet while you recuperate, you may find the personal injury restrictions in Michigan to be a major inconvenience. Insurance companies are more inclined to provide victims with the lowest possible settlement if they do not have legal counsel.
