Southfield car accidents are generally evaluated under the law of negligence in the state of Michigan. A person found to have negligently operated a motor vehicle in Southfield, Michigan may be required to pay any damages including personal injury caused by driver negligence, either to person or property. Generally, people who operate cars in Southfield, Michigan must exercise "reasonable care under the circumstances." Failure to use reasonable care is the basis for damage claims in most Southfield car accident lawsuits.
Michigan courts look to a number of factors in determining whether a driver was negligent. Some examples of factors evaluated to determine driver negligence in Southfield Michigan can include, but are not limited to, the following:
A driver may also be liable for a Southfield car accident if a Michigan traffic court determines that the auto accident was caused by intentional or reckless conduct. A driver who is reckless is one who drives unsafely, with willful and wanton disregard for the probability that the driving may cause an auto accident and/or related injuries.
In another example, if a mechanic fails to properly repair an automobile, and the failure causes a car accident in Southfield Michigan, the person who improperly repaired the automobile, and his repair shop, may be liable for injuries sustained. Other driver negligence factors such as poorly maintained roads and malfunctioning traffic control signals can contribute to the cause. Improper design, maintenance, construction, signage, lighting or other highway defect, as well as improper striping on the road's passing lanes, a sharp obstruction or problem with the roadway that obstructs drivers' vision, or poorly placed trees and utility poles can also cause serious car accidents in Southfield Michigan. Finally, if an auto accident in Southfield Michigan is caused by an intoxicated driver, a bar or social host may be liable for damages sustained if they served an obviously intoxicated guest, who then drives and causes a car accident in Southfield Michigan.
In Southfield car accident cases, it is essential that measures be taken promptly to preserve evidence, investigate the car accident in question, and to enable physicians or other expert witnesses to thoroughly evaluate any injuries sustained.
