Goodwin & Scieszka asks you to follow these recommendations in an effort to reduce the very incidents that we often defend. Having litigated Michigan automobile accidents for over 30 years, we have seen that time and time again most drivers fail to use safety measures that will significantly reduce their likelihood of being in fatal car accident.

  • Texting can wait. Did you know that a significant number of automobile accidents are a result of distracted drivers? Cell phone related accidents have only been increasing, and our firm wants to remind you to drive without the distraction of your cell phone.
  • Check your blind spot. Michiganders, we have to look out for our motorcyclists whom are often hit when people fail to check their blind spots. We also want to remind you that Michigan roads no longer require bikers to wear helmets, which means that the utmost care should used while driving next to that Harley Davidson on the Lodge.
  • Wear your seatbelt. We know, it’s simple, but people often overlook the instrument that will save your life. Just wear it.
  • Move more over for emergency vehicles. There’s a blog article we recently wrote about the importance moving more over for emergency vehicles with their hazard lights on. It’s the law. Killing an emergency vehicle’s technician who’s parked on the highway is a felony. We need to avoid injuring the people that risk their lives to protect us from danger.
