Injuries and Fatalities Too Common on M-13
Though I-75 is nearby, the road most concerning to Bay City residents is actually M-13, which finds its greatest number of major intersections in Bay City. In fact, the busiest section of M-13 is just north of the M-25 junction in Bay City. The M-13 highway passes through a mix of residential, commercial, and industrial space and is responsible for almost a quarter of all Bay County accidents involving fatalities and just under twenty percent of all accidents involving non-fatal injuries.
M-13 tends to be particularly unforgiving to the many motorcyclists who travel it in the spring and summer months, as serious accidents with other vehicles cause an unusual number of motorcycle injuries for a city with a population under 35,000. In addition, the highway is popular with holiday weekend travelers who pass through on their way to and from the many recreational activities in the upper part of the state.
Residents note it is necessary to be highly alert when traveling M-13. Though the number of accidents has declined slightly of late, a concerning array of dangerous driving practices such as excess speed, distracted driving, driving under the influence, and fatigued driving still impact the number of car, motorcycle, and semi-truck accidents along the highway’s path.
Bay City Car Accident Case
A client from Essexville, Michigan, contacted the Law Offices of Lee Steinberg after they were in a two car accident in Monitor Township. The accident occurred in Bay County, at the intersection of Traxler Drive and Wilder Road.
Our client was driving westbound in the left lane on Traxler Road. It was sunny and road conditions were fine. The other driver was turning left from Traxler Road, attempting to go east on southbound. Our client was struck at an angle by the vehicle trying to turn left in a hood-to-hood collision. The driver was issued a citation for failing to yield.
The airbags did not deploy and no medical attention was required at the scene. However, our client began experiencing neck pain that was hindering their day-to-day activities. He eventually had to seek treatment, at which point he contacted the Steinberg Law Firm. His Bay County injury lawyer was able to negotiate a fair and positive settlement for him.
