Given the nature of highway and intercity commuting, even the most careful driver has a chance of suffering catastrophic injuries in a collision that was caused by another motorist’s carelessness.
The fact that traffic accidents cause injuries to millions of individuals on a yearly basis is not something that is exclusive to the Great Lakes state. There are more than three million registered autos in Southeast Michigan alone, according to the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning. Every two minutes, there is a car accident that takes place somewhere in the state. In a single year, there were around 980 fatalities and 76,000 injuries reported in the state of Michigan.
A car accident may be caused by a wide variety of additional factors, such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, driving carelessly, or disobeying any number of traffic regulations.
