Car Accidents in Michigan

Dealing with the aftermath of an automobile accident can be incredibly challenging. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of vehicle collisions resulting in serious injuries are reported statewide each year. Following an automobile accident, victims have the ability to pursue legal claims against those responsible. Seeking guidance from a car accident lawyer can help to ensure you have the best chance of proving negligence. To win your negligence lawsuit, you must prove the following five elements:

  • Duty of Care: You must demonstrate that the defendant owed you a legal obligation to act reasonably and avoid causing you harm.
  • Breach of Duty: You must establish that the defendant failed to uphold their duty of care. This means they acted negligently or recklessly, putting your safety at risk.
  • Causation in Fact: You must prove that the defendant's negligence was a direct and substantial cause of your injury.
  • Proximate Cause: You must demonstrate that the defendant's actions were a foreseeable and natural consequence of their negligence.
  • Damages: You must prove that you suffered actual harm and losses due to the defendant's negligence. This can include showing that you suffered medical bills, lost wages, or even non-economic damages.

To ensure you have the best chance of getting justice after your accident, it is vital that you seek representation from a car accident lawyer in Michigan. Your attorney will be able to build a strong case against the defendant and prove your crash was their fault.
