Caution Required on M-58 and M-46
In 2012, there were more than 5,000 auto accidents in Saginaw County. Surprisingly, only 442 of these crashes occurred on the interstate. Instead, accidents are much more frequent on Michigan highways, especially M-46 and M-58. Historically, M-46 has been one of the most dangerous roads in Saginaw, as evidenced by data from 2011-2013, during which time almost 30% of Saginaw County’s fatal crashes occurred on M-46.
M-58, of which significant portions are also called State Street, connects the west side of Saginaw with the newly revived downtown Saginaw area. Whether drivers are commuting for work or traveling to take in some entertainment at The Dow, The Temple Theatre, or FirstMerit Event Park, State Street has grown busier than ever over the past few years. Unfortunately, this has meant more accidents, and State Street, both at N. Center Road and Hill Street, holds the dubious distinction of being part of the two intersections with the most accidents where people are injured or killed.
Obviously, I-75 and I-675 also require drivers to use caution. Speed, in general, plays a major role in Saginaw 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. Winter driving also proves problematic for Michigan drivers, and many accidents occur as a result of the storms so common throughout the region during winter.
Saginaw Car Accident Case
A client from Bay City was involved in a crash in Saginaw, Michigan, and called the Law Offices of Lee Steinberg. It involved two vehicles crash and occurred during the day with normal road conditions. The crash happened at the intersection of Tittabawassee Road and Town Center Road.
Our client was heading west on Tittabawasse Road. As she was driving through the intersection of Town Center Road, a car coming from the opposite direction attempted to turn left onto Town Center Road. Our client was not given enough time to stop and the collision occurred. Neither car was drivable following the incident. The driver of the other car received a citation for an improper turn.
Our client sustained an arm injury but refused treatment at the scene. However, the days and weeks that followed saw the injury worsen to the point where she needed medical help. That coupled with the damage to her car left our client in a precarious financial position. Fortunately, she called the Saginaw injury lawyers at the Steinberg Law Firm. We were able to get her the compensation that she deserved to help her move on with her life.

Saginaw Car Accident No Fault Law
We are experts in the Michigan no-fault law. Under the Michigan no-fault law, the car insurance company responsible for paying your claim must pay certain benefits. No-fault benefits are available even if you are at-fault for causing the accident. These benefits include 85% of your lost wages up to 3 years from the date of the accident, all hospital and doctor bills not covered by health insurance, family provided care, prescriptions drugs, medical mileage and as well as other benefits.
Our dedicated team of Saginaw car accident professionals will follow up with the insurance company to make sure these benefits are paid. We obtain wage loss documentation from your employer to make a proper wage loss claim. We make sure medical expenses get paid to prevent collection attempts. We constantly contact the car insurance company to ensure they are paying outstanding benefits.
Our Saginaw car wreck lawyers also fight for pain and suffering compensation for our clients. Under Michigan law, if the at-fault driver is at least 50% of fault for causing the accident and the injured person sustained injuries from the car accident that meet a certain threshold, they are entitled to compensation.
