- Car Accidents
- Semi-Truck Accidents

Flint Interstate Areas Are Safety Headache
Auto accidents are unfortunately very common in Flint, especially in areas around interstate ramps. While it is usually a given that interstates themselves have higher rates of accidents, injuries, and fatalities, the ramps and areas near ramps in Flint are a major source of accidents causing injury or death, as well as those causing vehicle damage. In fact, 6 out of 10 of the most dangerous intersections in Flint are either intersections involving an interstate ramp or occur within half a mile of one.
The interchange of I-69 and M-54 has two seriously dangerous intersections nearby. The number one most dangerous intersection in Flint is at E. Court St. and S. Dort Highway, and the third most dangerous intersection is at Lapeer Rd. and S. Dort Highway. Sitting just about half a mile apart, one on each side of I-69, they accounted for 19 accidents involving injuries and fatalities in 2014.
Three intersections around I-475 were responsible for another 18 accidents causing bodily injury: Cesar Chavez Dr. at Robert Longway Blvd., E. Stewart Ave. at N. I-475., and N. I-475 at S. Grand Traverse St. Speed, in general, plays a major role in Flint car accidents. Other common reasons for car, motorcycle, and semi-truck accidents are driving under the influence, fatigued driving, and in increasing and frightening measure, distracted driving.
Flint Car Accident Case
A client from Flint was in a single car crash on University Avenue, just shy of the intersection with Nolen Drive. The crash occurred at night in Genesee County, near the Flint River. There were two people in the car, and our client was in the front passenger seat.
The driver was traveling east at a high rate of speed when it passed an unknown vehicle at the curve in the road. The driver lost control of the vehicle and went over the right curb, hitting a metal fence and a utility pole. The passenger, our client, was taken to the hospital in serious condition. The driver was cited for reckless driving.
Due to the extent of her injuries, the passenger reached out to the Flint injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Lee Steinberg. We worked with her and helped navigate a complex legal situation with multiple insurance companies. Our Flint attorney team was able to win her a great settlement.
With an office in Flint, the attorneys at the Steinberg Law Firm have handled numerous accident and injury cases in the city. As part of the community, the Lee Free blog writes often on stories that directly affect Flint residents.
