Injury Car Accidents in Detroit

Detroit, MI - Two-Car Crash Causes Injuries on Hwy 16 at SchoenherrCongestion and dangerous driving conditions are caused by the thousands of vehicles that travel through Detroit and other major cities in Michigan daily. People may be rushing to get to work on time, or they may be preoccupied with anything else, such as the radio, a phone call, or texting. In such conditions, tragic car accidents often occur.

With nearly seven million cars and trucks on the road in Michigan in a single year, it’s no surprise that collisions are common here. Like other large cities throughout the globe, Detroit’s roads and motorways have significant traffic during the morning and evening rush hours on weekdays. In addition, various issues, such as drunk driving, inattentive driving, and so on, are often emphasized in the media when there is a catastrophic accident involving several motor vehicles.

The state of Michigan has implemented laws making it illegal to text while driving, yet this does not stop some drivers from continuing to do it. Car crashes are not only physically harmful but also emotionally devastating for the people involved. People die, and their loved ones are left to cope with the aftermath in the worst-case scenario. The Michigan State Police received reports of over 300,000 such accidents in the Detroit area in a single recent year, with more than 54,000 of them occurring in Wayne County alone.

Personal injury regulations in Michigan may be a significant hassle if you’ve been harmed in a car accident and are attempting to make ends meet while you recover. In the absence of legal representation, insurance companies are likely to provide victims with the lowest feasible payment.
