Latest numbers show decrease in the number of auto accidents, but increase in car accident deaths
As Michigan accident lawyers, we’ve helped many people injured in auto accidents from Flint. My first motion as a baby lawyer was in Flint nearly 20 years ago, so I always think of the Genesee County Courthouse warmly. Flint is somewhat unique, a combination of urban, suburban and even a little rural.
To help keep Flint drivers safe and give residents access to information and local statistics, our lawyers have published the Flint Auto Accident Lawyer Help Center.
Residents should also be aware of newly released 2010 Traffic Crash Data from the Michigan Department of State Police and the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning. These reports highlight car accident data for every Michigan county and detail the types of roads where accidents occur.

Auto accident client testimonial for Flint accident lawyer
Anne Juarez is from Flint and shared her experiences with our law firm below. Like many of our clients, Anne’s injuries were severe and she needed an experienced attorney who is familiar with Michigan’s No-Fault insurance laws to protect her legal rights:
“I was rear-ended and injured pretty badly. I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know my no-fault rights. But when I found Michigan Auto Law, I got on the right track. They were ready and willing to help. My attorneys explained the law to me and what was going to happen. And what was really great is that if I would call, even after business hours, I would always hear back within two hours. My attorneys were really informative, easy going and made me feel really comfortable. It didn’t matter how silly I thought my question was, they were always sincere. They definitely fought for me, and helped me get medical treatment even when my automobile insurance refused to pay for it. I would tell someone in my shoes that this firm works very hard to get everything you need and deserve. They’re very helpful and compassionate.”
