East Bay Twp., MI (December 22, 2023) – The Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that a woman lost her life as a result of a motor vehicle accident that occurred on Tuesday evening in East Bay Township. Authorities were summoned to the crash site at around 8:00 p.m. on December 19.

According to law enforcement reports, a pickup truck attempted to make a left turn from High Lake Road at the intersection of Willsey Road when it was struck by a car. The pickup truck driver failed to stop at the intersection, resulting in the collision. A man and woman in the car were both injured. The two victims were transported to area hospitals for treatment. The woman was later pronounced deceased due to her injuries. The authorities determined that the at-fault driver was under the influence and placed them under arrest. The incident is being investigated.

We hope the injured man recovers quickly.

Our sympathies go out to the family of the woman killed in this crash.

Fatal Car Accidents in Michigan

East Bay Twp., MI – Passenger Killed in High Lake Rd CrashThe National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that every 10–15 seconds, a vehicle accident occurs somewhere in the United States. Given the dismal national and Michigan-specific collision statistics, it is not surprising that car accidents are the largest source of personal injury litigation in today's courts.

Because of "no-fault" insurance, insurance companies in Michigan often do not investigate who was to blame in an accident. Recoverable in a lawsuit against the negligent party are both first-party benefits (monetary damages) and non-monetary losses (such as pain and suffering).

If you've been in a vehicle crash, even if you think your injuries are modest and the case is simple, you should still consult with an attorney. However, research has shown that plaintiffs whose counsel defends them actually earn greater settlements, so victims shouldn't let the cost of legal representation deter them from pursuing justice. The vast majority of personal injury lawyers take cases on a contingency fee basis.

Having legal counsel is a plus in many scenarios. Your attorney will handle all communications with your insurance company and any other involved parties. In order to identify who is at fault in an accident and why you should be reimbursed, your attorney will look into all of your legal alternatives. Witness interviews and data gathering are two components of this strategy.
