Economy tied to increase in motor vehicle accidents

Earlier this year, the Detroit Free Press reported that 2016 was the deadliest year for auto drivers in Michigan since 2007. A total of 1,021 people died in more than 300,000 crashes across the state. Experts speculate that there are three core reasons that caused this increase: texting and driving, lower gas prices, and an economy which is improving.

Tips for safe springtime driving: Watch out for these 5 dangers

Winter driving hazards will soon be in the rearview mirror. As the snow starts to melt and the sun makes refreshing appearances, more and more people will make their way outside to enjoy the spring weather. Yet along with these welcome changes comes a new set of potential dangers.

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.

What every driver should know about no-fault insurance

In Michigan, you're required to carry no-fault insurance if you drive a car. It's important to understand what your insurance covers. Even if you've never been in an accident, chances are, you'll at least be in a minor collision at some point during your lifetime.

Titan Insurance Improperly cancels auto no fault policy

Hallie Wilson purchased a policy of auto no fault insurance from Titan on January 20, 2012. Titan sent Hallie a premium due notice on February 7, 2012, and this notice contained boilerplate that said her policy would be cancelled if payment was not received by the "due date" of February 22, 2012. On February 25, having not received a payment from Hallie, Titan sent her a notice of cancellation, with an effective cancellation date of February 25, 2012.

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.
