Detroit Car Accident Attorneys
With millions of accidents occurring every year, car accidents are unfortunately very common in the United States. While some of these accidents result in nothing more than minor scratches and dents to the involved vehicles, the reality is that many car accidents occur in devastating consequences for victims, leaving them to struggle with property damage, long-term pain and suffering, and unmanageable bills.
Although some car accidents are the result of unavoidable or unpredictable circumstances, they are more often caused by the carelessness or recklessness of other drivers on the road.

Why Do I Need A Car Accident Attorney?
As an injured victim in Detroit, you should not have to pay for medical expenses or suffer the loss of wages as a result of someone else’s reckless behavior behind the wheel. People who hire an experienced attorney often secure far more (sometimes three times the amount) than people who do not hire an attorney.
The legal process can be challenging. Dedicated personal injury lawyers tend to limit their legal practice to the representation of accident victims. If an injury victim hires a lawyer who is not a trial lawyer, or who is not interested in or qualified to handle a lawsuit, the victim may not get their desired results. That’s why you should call an experienced attorney from Ravid & Associates, P.C. to help you today.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is it important to file an injury claim?
If you are hurt in a crash, you may face an uphill battle before you can return to work. Serious injuries may keep you sidelined for a significant amount of time, or worse, may permanently prohibit you from returning to work to support yourself and your family. Many individuals find that the hospital bills pile up quickly after an accident, leaving them wondering how they are going to possibly pay the costs of the accident. You do not have to shoulder this immense burden on your own. In fact, the party responsible for the accident may be responsible for compensating you for all these costs, and possibly more.
What if my injuries keep me from working?
Car accident attorneys take lost wages into account when filing suits against insurance companies. It is essential to keep records of specific dates you missed work, the amount of money you lost, and even any money you paid for public transportation to get to work (if your injuries allowed it but your vehicle was too damaged).
Why should I ask for a copy of the police report?
The police report is an official document that includes many of the most important details following a crash. The officer may list details and evidence found at the scene, witness descriptions and their contact information, and will note any citations that may have been given to parties the officer felt were responsible for the accident. This document goes a long way toward providing evidence for your claim.
Car Accident Statistics
According to the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the U.S. Department of Transportation, our country lost 35,092 people in crashes on U.S. roadways during 2015, an increase from 32,744 in 2014. The 7.2-percent increase in fatalities is the largest percentage increase in nearly 50 years.
Fatalities in the U.S. increased from 2014 to 2015 in almost all segments of the population—passenger vehicle occupants, passengers of large trucks, pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, alcohol-impaired drivers, male/female, daytime/nighttime. Furthermore, the estimated number of people injured on U.S. roads increased in 2015, rising from 2.34 to 2.44 million injured people. The estimated number of police-reported crashes increased by 3.8 percent, from 6.0 to 6.3 million.
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and the Michigan State Police (MSP) will be continuing the Toward Zero Deaths statewide safety campaign in 2017. This campaign is based on the National Strategy on Highway Safety that is intended to influence driver behavior and improve safety. With more than 35,000 fatalities occurring on U.S. highways each year, roadway safety remains one of the most challenging issues facing Michigan and the nation.
It is true that driver behavior factors into nearly 90 percent of all fatal crashes and one key to changing driver behavior is educating the public on the scope of the issue. Posting fatality messages on DMS is one simple and inexpensive way MDOT can contribute to that effort and help to save more lives.
