The definition of the word accident, according to Merriam Webster, is “1-an unforeseen or unplanned event or circumstance; 2-an unfortunate event resulting especially from carelessness or ignorance.” No one ever expects to be involved in an accident. However, on any given day, whether you are a driver, passenger, bicyclist, motorcyclist, or pedestrian, you could instantly be injured without warning.
Over 298,000 motor vehicle traffic crashes were reported in Michigan in 2014. A vast majority of those crashes resulted in property damage only. It is a major inconvenience, and can be very upsetting to have your vehicle damaged or destroyed. Even so, most people are able to work out their transportation issues and get back to a normal routine fairly quickly.
However, the statistics further reveal that 876 people lost their lives and more than 71,000 were injured in these accidents. When you suffer an injury in an accident, the devastation can be extreme. It may be immediately apparent that your injuries are life altering, or they may at first seem rather insignificant and end up being much worse than you first suspected.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a motor vehicle accident, it is important to consult with a highly reputable law firm before agreeing to any settlement or signing any papers. Additionally, if your life has been directly impacted by a fatal accident involving someone close to you, you may be entitled to monetary compensation.
