Car accidents in Detroit happen daily. In many instances, the other driver has no intention to cause harm. Nevertheless, bodily injury, financial loss, and property damage are all consequences.
Whether the accident is a small fender bender or a serious collision, being the victim of a motor vehicle accident can be a very stressful experience. It is far more than a mere inconvenience. When another person is to blame for the car crash, then it becomes a legal matter.
Trying to resolve your claim can become highly technical and time-consuming. Instead of fighting for compensation on your own, it is best to work with a Detroit car accident lawyer. Our Detroit personal injury attorneys at Davis Injury Lawyers, PLLC have the knowledge, skills, and experience you need to successfully maximize your compensation after a crash.

Common Causes of Car Accidents in Michigan
At Davis Injury Lawyers, PLLC, our car accident lawyers consistently handle car crash claims and have seen virtually every type of collision.
Some of the most common causes of car accidents include:
- Failure to yield the right of way
- Reckless or aggressive driving
- Running red lights or stop signs
- Drowsy driving
- Distracted driving
- Texting while driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs (DUI)
- Driving the wrong way on a one-way street
- Teen drivers
- Drivers over 65
Car crashes often result from several elements. For instance, speed factors into many accidents, but it may have been the confluence of speed and wet pavement that led to a collision. Or, it may be that the other driver’s cell phone use while in a busy work zone led to a wreck. When we investigate the accident that led to your injuries, we will seek to gather as much evidence as possible. We will look for all of the factors, including those related to the other driver’s carelessness, so that we can prove exactly why the crash occurred and how the other driver is at fault.

Our car crash attorneys at Davis Injury Lawyers, PLLC handle:
ALL TYPES OF VEHICLE COLLISIONS RESULTING IN INJURIES
We have worked on it all: read-end crashes, head-on collisions, drunk driving accidents, back-over accidents, rollovers, T-bone crashes, and side swipes. We are prepared to thoroughly investigate the crash that led to your injuries, or your loved one’s injuries or death, and to fight for you to receive full and fair compensation.
DISTRACTED DRIVING ACCIDENTS
One of the most common reasons for an automobile accident is a distracted driver. Our lawyers have seen drivers hit other vehicles because they were on their cell phones, eating or drinking, reading a book or newspaper, trying to do their hair or makeup, shaving, or paying too much attention to their passengers. When anyone is behind the wheel, it is their responsibility to keep their eyes on the road, their hands on the wheel, and their mind on driving the car. Failing to do any one of these things increases the risk of a crash.
RIDESHARE AND UBER ACCIDENTS
Car accidents can be complicated enough until you learn the at-fault driver was working for Uber, Lyft, or another rideshare service at the time. Then, whether you were hit by the Uber driver or you were a passenger in the rideshare vehicle, you are going to need to work with our car injury lawyers to discuss filing a claim against Uber or Lyft’s insurance policy.
MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
Not all accidents involve you being in a car. At Davis Injury Lawyers, PLLC, we often handle boating accidents, bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. We handle any and all type of motor vehicle accidents in which you were hurt or your loved one was killed. Whether you were jogging on the sidewalk or cycling to work, we are here to fight for your right to compensation.
FATAL CAR ACCIDENTS
Many crashes are fatal. In Michigan, 1,028 individuals were killed in car accidents in 2017. That is more than a thousand families who were tragically impacted by a collision. We are here to help those families hold the at-fault driver responsible and pursue compensation for their injuries. While we strive to obtain a car accident settlement in either a personal injury or wrongful death insurance claim, we are not afraid to go to court and fight for what our clients deserve.
