Fatal Auto Accidents in Michigan

Detroit, MI – Fatal Pedestrian Crash on 8 Mile Rd (M-102) at Dequindre RdAccording to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an automotive accident occurs approximately every 10–15 seconds somewhere in the United States. Given the discouraging collision statistics both nationally and in Michigan, it is unsurprising that vehicle accidents rank as the primary cause of personal injury litigation in contemporary courts.

In Michigan, insurance companies often refrain from determining fault in accidents due to the presence of "no-fault" insurance. A lawsuit against the responsible party allows your family to recover compensation for economic and noneconomic damages. This can include the costs of funeral arrangements, burial expenses, lost earnings, and pain and suffering. You must seek representation right away.

Your attorney will be able to help you gather evidence in support of your claim area. Additionally, they can take statements from witnesses, gather evidence from the scene, and even work with experts to re-create the accident.
