Personal injury: Are motorcyclists at a higher risk of death?

With spring rapidly approaching, some Michigan residents might be getting ready to bring their motorcycles out of storage and back on the road. While driving a motorcycle can be an exhilarating and freeing experience, it can also be dangerous. Here are just a few ways in which the average motorcycle rider might be at risk for a personal injury.

Personal injury compensation for dog bite injuries

Dogs can bring a lot of joy to their owners and those around them, but are they always safe? Regardless of their training or background, dogs are still animals, which means that they are capable of causing serious harm. Dog bite victims often need help addressing the aftermath of these attacks. Although no two injury victims are alike, many find success in pursuing personal injury claims.

Should I file a personal injury claim for my dog bite injury?

The physical injuries associated with dog bites are often severe, and many victims also experience long-lasting emotional trauma. If you were the victim of a dog bite, you can seek compensation from the dog owner through a personal injury claim. Like other victims, you may find that financial compensation can be an essential tool for your recovery. 

Reducing personal injury incidents related to distracted driving

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.

Personal injury: Truck crashes through bank lobby

Most people in Michigan understand that they risk being injured in a wreck when they are behind the wheel of a vehicle. Few, if any, expect to be hit by a car and suffer a personal injury while standing inside of their bank. Unfortunately, this exact situation played out recently, sending several people to the hospital. 

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. The crash investigation is ongoing, but a preliminary report indicates that the driver fled the crash scene on foot. It is not known whether he suffered any personal injury, but his two passengers lost their lives.

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. Motorcyclists usually value this experience greatly and take necessary safety measures to protect themselves on the road. Unfortunately, other drivers may not. Motorcyclists are usually at risk for serious personal injury from negligent drivers of larger passenger vehicles.
