Injuries from Detroit Car Crashes
Every day, hundreds of thousands of automobiles clog the streets of Detroit and other large cities in Michigan, creating hazardous 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 hardly surprising that there are so many automobile accidents in Michigan, with roughly seven million vehicles on the road every year. 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. Those engaged in car accidents suffer mental anguish in addition to bodily injury. Worst case scenario: people die, leaving their loved ones to deal with the fallout. 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 rules in Michigan to be a major burden. Insurance companies are more inclined to provide victims with the lowest possible settlement if they do not have legal counsel.
