We hope those harmed in this accident recover quickly.

Car Accidents in Michigan

Oakland, MI – MSP Responds to Auto Wreck on I-696 at M-10Motor vehicle accidents are the cause of tens of thousands of injuries across the United States every year. Unfortunately, we see many of these accidents take place right here in Michigan. When innocent people are harmed as a result of motor vehicle accidents, it can have devastating consequences on the lives of those involved. Car crash victims are often left with significant trauma to the head, broken bones, and other injuries that require extensive care. In many cases, these accidents are caused by negligence. Leading factors in collisions include:

  • Distracted Driving: Engaging in activities like texting, talking on the phone, or even adjusting the radio takes the attention of a driver off the road, which can have devastating consequences.
  • Inadequate Vehicle Maintenance: Failing to properly maintain and service a vehicle can lead to mechanical problems that could contribute to accidents.
  • Impaired Driving: Operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or medication significantly impairs judgment and reaction time.
