Risk factors that all drivers face

As drivers, we often become numb to just how dangerous the roads can be. The alarming facts - such as data showing that nearly 1,000 people were killed in Michigan in 2015 alone - become nothing more than numbers. It's easy to think we won't become one of those statistics.

Understanding No-Fault Insurance In Michigan

Michigan insurance law is based on a no-fault policy. In a nutshell, this means that recovery for damages after an automobile accident will come from your insurance company regardless of who was at fault for the accident. With this system, insured persons are protected from being sued unless certain circumstances apply, such as if there is an extremely severe injury, a fatality, or a few other very specific criteria factor into the accident.

Do You Know What A Dram Shop Law Is?

If you have been involved in a car accident in Michigan and you suspect that alcohol played a role in causing the crash, it's important to consider the possibility of holding negligent bar owners or the hosts of private parties accountable for over serving a guest who chose to get behind the wheel.

Young drivers are at higher risk of being involved in car accidents

It's no secret that young drivers can be a liability on the roads. Whether texting while driving, talking on the phone, adjusting the radio or being distracted by friends in the car, there is plenty that can pull a young person's attention away from the road.

Car Accidents caused by falling objects are compensable events

In Michigan as well as other jurisdictions, it is a basic rule of the road that a driver of a truck or other vehicle has the duty to have all cargo and accessories sufficiently fastened to the vehicle while traveling on the highways. When truck and car accidents occur due to cargo or attachments falling off of a truck and creating a collision, this is usually found to be due to the negligence of the truck driver and the owner. This kind of breach of duty took two lives on I-94 at about 2 p.m. on May 30.

Driverless cars hold great promise

Imagine a world without traffic accidents. At the moment, it is virtually unthinkable. One of the problems of attempting to convince people that more should be done to prevent truck and car accidents is that they are so common. While the local Detroit television news may lead with an occasional story of a car accident, it is typically only when the crash is particularly horrific or snarls traffic for a long period.
