Leading causes of accidents in Michigan
In Macomb County in 2016, there were 25,411 motor vehicle crashes, resulting in 63 fatalities and 7,404 reported injuries. Three of the most dangerous intersections in Macomb County are located in Sterling Heights: 15 Mile and Ryan, 18 Mile and Van Dyke, and 14 Mile and Schoenherr. According to the Michigan State Police, the hazardous actions taken by drivers that caused the greatest number of deaths and personal injuries in 2016 were:
- Speeding — 194 fatalities and 7,157 injuries
- Failing to yield — 108 fatalities and 12,154 injuries
- Disregarding traffic controls — 84 fatalities and 4,296 injuries
- Careless driving — 78 fatalities and 4,190 injuries
- Reckless driving — 56 fatalities and 945 injuries
- Driving left of center — 55 fatalities and 823 injuries
Any of these hazardous actions could be considered negligent or reckless, making the driver liable for the accident, property damage and, most importantly, the victims’ injuries. However, proving liability is not always easy, and defendants’ insurance companies apply a great deal of pressure to get victims to settle for less than their case is worth.
Serious car accident injuries require professional representation
Too many victims of car accidents take a passive approach to their legal rights by waiting to see what the insurance company offers as compensation for their losses. By the time they realize the insurer has no intention of offering a fair settlement, crucial evidence may have been lost, and their case is significantly weaker. The better approach is to contact a reputable car accident lawyer immediately and ask about their experience with cases similar to yours.
