Personal injury: Toddler's death blamed on reckless driver

Multiple people were injured and a small child was killed in a recent accident. Michigan police suspect the person who caused the wreck was driving recklessly. When another person's negligence results in an accident, victims and their families can pursue compensation through either personal injury or wrongful death claims depending on the situation. 

Personal injury: Wrongful death claims might follow fatal crash

According to  police in Michigan, a 20-year-old man will likely be arraigned on charges related to a fatal car accident that occurred in the early morning hours of a recent Tuesday.

Will self-driving cars lead to more personal injury claims?

Michigan readers are aware that many tech companies and automakers are in the testing phase for their models of self-driving vehicles. Autonomous vehicles are no longer a prospect of the distant future, but they are a reality that is coming soon to Michigan roads. There are some who have concerns over the safety of these vehicles, particularly in light of the condition of state roads, wondering if they could possibly lead to an increase in the number of personal injury incidents.

Personal injury suit could address damages from fatal crash

A devastating car crash cost a young mother her life and left one of her sons critically injured. The Michigan woman's other son was also in the vehicle at the time of the wreck, but he survived without injuries. The victim was pregnant with her third child. Although it is not clear if the family plans to take any action, personal injury and wrongful death claims are common responses to accidents such as this.

Personal injury suits can be tricky for motorcyclists

For some people in Michigan, there is no greater feeling than riding astride a motorcycle.

Personal injury: Ambulance driver caused fatal wreck

Ambulances, fire engines and other emergency vehicles are usually symbols of hope on the road. This was not the case for a recent fatal accident, in which one person was killed.

While this case did not take place in Michigan, similar cases are heard throughout the state each year.
