Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of injury and death in the United States. According to recent data from the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning, 245,432 accidents occurred in the state over just one year. Of these, there were over 1,000 deaths and over 44,000 injuries. Common injuries after a motor vehicle accident include traumatic brain injuries, soft tissue injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones.
Michigan has a no-fault insurance system that limits who you can sue for injuries sustained in a motor vehicle collision. Michigan also recently passed a number of new laws that complicate claims against your own insurance company for things like medical care and lost wages.
