We've been advocating for victims for more than 30 years

Recently on the blog we discussed the pervasiveness of distracted driving. Sadly, far too many Michiganders engage in other activities while driving, which significantly increases the chances that they will be involved in a serious car accident. Those innocent motorists and pedestrians who are affected by these wrecks can be left with extensive injuries that can be painful to cope with and expensive to treat. In addition, these victims may find themselves on uncertain financial footing when they are unable to work. The emotional turmoil unfairly thrust upon them can be devastating, too.

What should I do after a car accident?

If a Michigan resident has ever been involved in an accident, then they understand the stress. We are all aware of car accidents and their prevalence, but we rarely, if ever, think that they could happen to us. And, when they do, we often find ourselves unsure of what to do in the immediate aftermath of a crash.

Texting and driving still far too common

If a Michigander were to get in their car and drive for a half an hour, the chances are high that they would encounter multiple individuals who have taken their eyes off of the road to look at their cell phone. Sadly, this is the new reality. Motorists are often distracted by their cell phones, thereby putting innocent and unsuspecting motorists at risk of being involved in a car accident.

Truck stopping distances can increase risk of car accidents

If Michiganders get nervous when they drive near semi-trucks, they are not alone. These big rigs can be intimidating, primarily because their massive size can cause immense devastation when they are involved in an accident. Due to the risk associated with these vehicles, truckers obtain education and training to better prepare them to drive them safely. Unfortunately, some of the finer points of safe driving are often forgotten.

For young drivers, blind spots are critical

Young drivers have quite a bit to learn when they first get behind the wheel. Not only are they supposed to actively incorporate the rules of the road, they must understand the importance of safety regulations (both written and unwritten). An example is the need to check one’s blind spot. Indeed, it may be a foreign concept for a new driver, but if this simple step is missed, it could spell disaster.
