Ecorse 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 Ecorse, 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 Ecorse, Michigan must exercise "reasonable care under the circumstances." Failure to use reasonable care is the basis for damage claims in most Ecorse 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 Ecorse Michigan can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Driving too fast or too slow
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Failing to signal while turning
  • Disregarding weather or traffic conditions
  • Disobeying traffic signs or signals
  • Failing to drive on the right side of the road
  • Texting while driving

A driver may also be liable for a Ecorse 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 Ecorse 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 Ecorse Michigan. Finally, if an auto accident in Ecorse 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 Ecorse Michigan.

In Ecorse 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. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a Ecorse car accident, call Buchanan & Buchanan, P.L.C. now at 1-800-272-4080. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to accept your case, we will work on a contingent fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary award or recovery of funds. That is our No Fee Promise to you.

Don't delay! You may have a valid claim and be entitled to compensation for your injuries, but a Ecorse car accident lawsuit must be filed with Michigan courts before the statute of limitations expires.
