Car Accidents Over 100 Years of Collective Experience


According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), most traffic accidents occur within 15 miles of a driver’s home. Often, these accidents happen because another person was driving carelessly, recklessly, or negligently. When this is the case, and you are injured as a result of the accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries and other losses.

At Grewal Law PLLC, our auto accident lawyers represent clients throughout Michigan who have been injured in car accidents. We understand the extensive suffering you are going through and are here to fight for the maximum compensation you are owed. It is important that you reach out to a Michigan car accident lawyer from our firm as soon as possible, as evidence can become lost over time and you legally only have three years from the date of injury to bring an accident claim.

Common Types of Car Accidents

A car accident occurs when two or more vehicles collide, leading to property damage, injuries, or even fatalities. These collisions come in various forms, each with its own set of circumstances and potential consequences.

Here are some common types of car accidents:

  • Rear-End Collisions: These occur when a vehicle crashes into the one in front of it. Typically, this happens due to tailgating, sudden stops, distracted driving, or reduced visibility.
  • T-Bone or Side-Impact Collisions: These accidents happen when the front of one vehicle crashes into the side of another, usually at intersections. Failure to yield, running red lights or stop signs, and improper turns often lead to T-bone collisions.
  • Head-On Collisions: Considered among the most severe accidents, these occur when the front ends of two vehicles collide. They often result from wrong-way driving, crossing into opposing traffic lanes, or driver distraction.
  • Sideswipe Accidents: These involve vehicles traveling alongside each other and making contact. This can occur due to improper lane changes, merging without checking blind spots, or drifting out of lanes.
  • Single-Vehicle Accidents: These occur when a single vehicle crashes without involving another vehicle. Examples include running off the road, hitting a stationary object, or losing control due to factors like weather, road conditions, or mechanical failures.
  • Multi-Vehicle Pileups: These accidents involve several vehicles and often occur on highways or freeways. They can result from chain reactions due to initial collisions, adverse weather, poor visibility, or sudden stops.
  • Rollover Accidents: When a vehicle tips and rolls onto its side or roof. These accidents are more common in SUVs, trucks, or vehicles with a higher center of gravity and can be caused by sharp turns, collisions, or evasive maneuvers at high speeds.
  • Parking Lot Accidents: Typically low-speed collisions occur in parking lots due to factors like distracted driving, reversing without proper visibility, or failure to yield to pedestrians.
  • Hit-and-Run Accidents: These occur when a driver involved in an accident flees the scene without stopping to provide information or assistance. Hit-and-run accidents can involve any of the aforementioned collision types but involve the added element of one party leaving the scene illegally.
  • Pedestrian or Cyclist Accidents: These involve collisions between vehicles and pedestrians or cyclists. They can occur at intersections, crosswalks, or due to a failure to observe pedestrians/cyclists while turning or merging.
  • Backing-Up Accidents: These happen when a driver reverses their vehicle and collides with another car, object, or pedestrian. Poor visibility, lack of checking mirrors, or not looking behind while reversing contribute to these accidents.

Securing the legal Compensation You Deserve

Michigan is a no-fault state for car accidents, meaning that regardless of who caused the car accident, you can have your medical bills and certain other expenses covered by your own PIP insurance policy. All Michigan drivers are required to purchase no-fault personal injury protection (PIP) insurance.

However, even minor car accident injuries can result in heavy costs. The pain of your injury may prevent you from being able to work, not to mention the medical bills that can quickly pile up.

By securing a favorable settlement with the insurance company, you can be compensated the losses you have sustained, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Loss of income
  • Permanent disability
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Funeral and burial expenses, in fatal accidents

What if PIP Coverage Isn't Enough?

In the past, the state-mandated the amount of PIP insurance coverage that drivers could purchase. However, with the passing of Senate Bill 1 in June 2019, drivers now have the choice to enroll at different levels of PIP insurance, with the lowest set at $50,000. That is rarely enough to account for the most catastrophic injuries, and may not even be enough to get treatment for minor car accident injuries.

When an accident injury causes serious impairment to your life, you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party for additional legal compensation. Michigan's no-fault insurance laws greatly limit who can file a personal injury lawsuit, so it's best to review your case with an experienced car accident attorney to understand all your options.
