Michigan’s automobile crash statistics send a chilling reminder that driving can be dangerous. Our firm wants to remind all Michigan drivers to always drive with the utmost care:
- Wear a seatbelt
- Never drive under the influence
- Keep your phone down
- Check your blind spot
- Share the road
We often use our blog as a place to voice our opinion, educate Michiganders and reduce the very injuries that we often defend, and we hope that this year’s statistics are substantially lower than 2012’s.
Remember, if you or your loved one has been injured in a car accident in Detroit, Michigan, or the surrounding Metro Detroit areas: in places like Southfield, Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, South Lyon, Hamtramck, or other surrounding areas, then contact our offices.
We specialize in Michigan car accident claims, and our firm doesn’t take any money from you upfront. That’s right, you only pay when we collect from the person that injured you.
Goodwin & Scieszka also handles a wide of variety of other Michigan personal injury claims: dog bites, trampoline accidents, birth defects, medical malpractice claims, social security disability, and worker’s compensation claims.
So, if you’ve been harmed by someone else’s actions, then go where there’s 30 years of nationally recognized experience and get the compensation that you are entitled to.
