Living in Taylor
Taylor is the 5th most populated city in Wayne County and 17th in the state of Michigan with over 61,500 residents.
Many Taylor residents commute to work on Telegraph Rd., with cars being the overwhelming method of transportation. Over 87% of residents drive alone to work and a little over 7% carpool. The SMART bus system also runs through the city, with three different routes taking passengers to different areas of the county.
Taylor is a dense community with very busy roadways. As a result, dangerous accidents happen. The type of car accidents and truck accidents in Taylor vary. Some of the more common collisions include:
- Rear-end accidents
- T-bone accidents
- Head-on collisions
- Failure to yield and illegal turns
- Drunk driving and driving while intoxicated
- Running a red light or stop sign
A car accident is a very traumatic event. But the law does protect you and there are benefits you may be entitled to receive. These benefits are called no-fault benefits, or PIP benefits, and they can include the payment of medical bills – like hospital and doctor bills, lost wages, payment of prescriptions and out-of-pockets costs. An experienced Taylor car accident lawyer can walk you through the process for obtaining these benefits, as well as receiving compensation for the pain and suffering the auto accident caused.
Like many communities in Wayne County, car insurance in Taylor is not cheap. As a result, there are a number of uninsured drivers. To protect yourself from these drivers, the Lee Steinberg Law Firm, P.C. encourages you to purchase uninsured motorist coverage, also known as UM coverage, from your own auto insurance carrier. Uninsured motorist coverage protects you and provides a way to obtain compensation if an uninsured driver causes an accident in Taylor or another community.
For example, if a drunk driver hits you and causes a severe injury, like a broken leg or herniated disc, it can be very difficult to obtain compensation from the drunk driver if he or she is not insured. When this situation occurs, if you have uninsured motorist coverage, you can turn to your own auto insurance carrier for compensation. They step into the shoes of the drunk driver. The carrier can then make a claim for reimbursement from the drunk driver if it wishes. But in the meantime, you have a viable avenue for recovery for your injuries.
Uninsured motorist coverage is not expensive. In fact, it’s quite cheap and we highly recommend you purchase this form of coverage. It not only protects the policyholder, but under most insurance policies it also covers all family members and even occupants of the insured automobile when an accident happens. Call a Taylor auto accident lawyer for more information about these claims if you are ever in this situation. It can mean the difference between recovering nothing or recovering full compensation.
