Car Accidents in Michigan
According to statistics, around 310,000 vehicle collisions take place in the state of Michigan each year. Although more than 256,000 of these accidents result in only property damages, more than 55,000 people are left with debilitating injuries as a result of their accidents. Not only are many victims forced to deal with immediate consequences, but the long-term suffering can be overwhelming as well.
When victims are injured in accidents, they are often rushed to area hospitals for treatment. After undergoing emergency surgery, most victims are admitted and forced to spend several days or even weeks in a hospital or rehabilitation facility. As if being forced out of work to recover were not enough, victims are further burdened by stacking medical bills they need as a result of their injuries. In cases where victims are harmed by negligent or reckless drivers, they should contact a car accident attorney in Michigan immediately. Victims may be entitled to compensation to help alleviate the financial burdens they face for both economic and non-economic damages.
