Car Accidents in Michigan

Bay City, MI – Hit & Run Crash Reported at N Johnson St & Columbus AveProfessionals at Indiana University conducted a revealing study on the percentage of car accidents attributed to human error. Their findings indicated that human error served as the primary factor in 93 percent of the motor vehicle accidents that they examined. Common acts of negligence leading to automobile accidents across our state include:

  • Distracted driving: when drivers are not paying attention to the road ahead of them, it can lead to devastating accidents. We often see accidents take place as a result of drivers who are messing with their cell phones, changing the radio, or even eating.
  • Tailgating: following other vehicles too closely can be incredibly dangerous. It does not provide drivers with the ability to stop in time to avoid a collision. Unfortunately, we often see accidents take place as a result of drivers who engage in this aggressive action.
  • Poor road conditions: when government entities fail to maintain roads in an adequate manner, it can cause devastating collisions. Many factors, including potholes, damaged roadways, and objects on the road, can lead to severe accidents that have overwhelming consequences for those involved.
