What Compensation Can I Get After A Southfield Personal Injury?

Personal injury due to a person or company’s negligence can be life changing. Often, the medical bills are substantial, the injured person is missing work and losing income, and the ability to do the things you once did is impossible. Michigan law gives personal injury victims in Southfield the ability to receive compensation to make their lives whole again.

There are two types of compensation, economic damages, and non-economic damages.

Economic damages include items like lost income, the payment of medical bills, lost future income, reimbursement of out-of-pocket costs, and medical equipment. Economic damages are usually easy to calculate and explain to the insurance company, a judge, or a jury.

Non-economic damages are different. They include things like pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of consortium, anxiety, and depression from the crash as well as future pain and suffering. This type of compensation can be difficult to put a number on for many people.

That is why it is important to hire Pontiac personal injury lawyers who have represented thousands of Oakland County residents over the past five decades. The personal injury lawyers at the Lee Steinberg Law Firm understand the harms and losses an injured person and their family experiences after a motorcycle crash or nursing home abuse. And we know how to present these harms and losses to a jury in a compelling way so our clients receive the most compensation they can under the law. 

What are The Most Dangerous Intersections in Pontiac?

Several intersections including West Huron St. are among the most dangerous in Pontiac. In fact, W. Huron at Telegraph Road is consistently named one of the most dangerous intersections in the entire state of Michigan. Although Pontiac no longer plays host to the Detroit Lions, it still serves as the entry point for Woodward Avenue, one of metro Detroit’s most famous roadways. Woodward Ave. is home to the annual Woodward Dream Cruise, a celebration of the “hot rod” era wherein car enthusiasts “cruise” down Woodward from Pontiac to Detroit. The intersection of W. Huron and Woodward, which is also part of the loop surrounding downtown Pontiac, is the location of more than 20 accidents each year.

I-75, which borders Pontiac to the east and north, can also be a headache for drivers. This interstate, along with M-59, can produce major accidents, whether due to winter weather, construction traffic or heading to and from work.

Distracted driving has increased significantly in Pontiac since the increase use of smartphones. Many drivers take their eyes off the road to text and drive, find an app, or scroll through social media. Unfortunately, studies show these types of distractions keep the driver’s focus from the roadway for far longer than what is safe. This creates a danger for everyone on the road.
