Providing The Edge You Need In Auto Accident Cases

For some motorists, driving can feel like a chore — but this is better than treating it as a time to multitask. All motorists, whether they are operating a small passenger vehicle, motorcycle, tractor-trailer truck or bus, have an important responsibility to follow all traffic laws and drive safely. Unfortunately, automobile negligence in Michigan occurs far too often, causing motor vehicle collisions that result in catastrophic injuries and death.

At Lipton Law, our Southfield personal injury attorneys are dedicated to helping people who have been injured — and family members of those who have been killed — in auto accidents caused by others' reckless behavior. We understand how difficult it is to not only recover psychologically and physically from a car crash, but also to also keep the bills and expenses under control — and that's why our first priority in an auto accident case is you.

Types Of Automobile Negligence

Any action that takes a driver's attention away from the road can be considered a distraction and constitute negligence. The main type of distraction that causes automobile negligence includes any nondriving activity an individual participates in while operating a motor vehicle that is visual, manual or cognitive.

Car accidents in Michigan can result in serious injuries such as:

  • Lacerations
  • Broken bones
  • Burn injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Paralysis

Considering that these injuries are only some of many life-altering injuries that vehicle occupants, pedestrians and bicyclists can suffer in a Michigan automobile accident, acts of negligence are much more dangerous than most people realize.

Holding Negligent Individuals Legally Responsible

No matter what causes an auto accident, the aftermath often involves significant financial, emotional and physical challenges for an individual to overcome. Although no-fault auto insurance and other policies provide recovery for car accident victims, these benefits may not be substantial enough to cover all expenses associated with a person's injuries. Depending on the circumstances of your collision, you may be entitled to additional compensation from the insurance company, an auto manufacturer or a driver who is determined to have caused the accident.
