Common Causes of Accidents in Detroit

Our Michigan Accident Attorneys Protect the Rights of the Injured

From rush hour rear-end collisions on I-75 or on the Edsel Ford Freeway to catastrophic rollover or head-on crashes, car accidents in Detroit happen quickly and can leave victims with injuries that last a lifetime. While these accidents can take many shapes and forms, our Detroit car accident lawyers understand that the majority of car accidents share common contributing factors. Was the driver drunk when he hit your vehicle? Was he driving recklessly or speeding? Was he looking at a cellphone instead of the road ahead? These are just a few dangerous scenarios we have seen all too often in Tri-County accidents. Contact Fraser & Souweidane today to discuss your legal options with an experienced attorney.

Proudly serving Mt. Clemens and Detroit, MI

At Fraser & Souweidane, our firm knows that no two accident cases are exactly the same. However, no matter the type of car accident you've been involved in, you may suffer significant losses, physically, emotionally and financially. You should not hesitate to contact a determined and aggressive car accident attorney. You may be entitled to compensation. The following are some of the most common causes of car accidents in Detroit and across Wayne, Macomb and Oakland counties:

  • Impairments - Drunk driving accidents happen too often, despite the well-known dangers of drinking and driving
  • Distractions - Distracted driving accidents can happen because a driver is eating behind the wheel, gazing and something along the side of the road or even putting on makeup.
  • Cell phone use - Texting while driving accidents happen because many drivers are sending or receiving text messages rather than focusing on operating their vehicle.
  • Speeding - Drivers who cause speeding accidents must be held accountable for their careless behavior.
  • Tired or fatigued driving - Drowsy driving accidents can lead to serious injuries and fatalities. Our attorneys will put experience and resources to work to investigate these complex accident claims.
  • Reckless driving - Drivers in Michigan who fail to follow the rules of the road can cause reckless driving accidents.  Sometimes reckless driving goes hand-in-hand with drunk driving. Our attorneys can conduct a full investigation to determine liability.
