Distracted driving is one of the biggest safety concerns in Michigan and across the United States. Despite the fact that most people know it is risky, many drivers continue to engage in this dangerous behavior. Law enforcement and other parties continue to fight for fewer distraction-related personal injury incidents by increasing awareness.
As cities across Michigan continue to grow in both geographic size and population, road construction will continue to be a common site on the state’s roadways. Though often necessary, road construction brings with it additional hazards for motorists, and these construction zones are a common cause of car wrecks, associated with injuries and even deaths.
Living together and even owning a four-legged friend before marriage is hardly uncommon in today's society. While most couples -- married or not -- find great companionship in owning a pet, things can get messy during a divorce. Under Michigan family law, an animal is property regardless of the feelings a person might have toward it. Rather than potentially lose a deep, established bond with a pet, some owners are using prenuptial agreements to sort out these issues early on.
A Michigan woman is facing several charges for allegedly getting behind the wheel while intoxicated. According to police, she had her two children in the vehicle at the time of the accident. Michigan law tends to handle allegations that involve minors quite seriously, so defendants in similar situations are typically well advised to carefully focus on their criminal defense planning.
Even when it is obvious that a marriage is not going well, some people in Michigan still feel obligated to tough things out. Whether it is a parent hoping to make things work for the children or someone who is scared of what life after divorce might bring, evidence indicates that it may be better to simply address family law issues head-on. Consider these benefits of taking that first step toward divorce.
