Auto accident attorney says latest Lansing and Ingham County, Michigan car accident numbers show a drop in crashes
Last year, Michigan Auto Law received the highest reported auto accident injury trial verdict in Lansing. And both myself and many of our auto accident attorneys help many people injured in car and truck accidents in the Lansing, Michigan area every year. From time to time, I try to publish information to help keep Lansing and Ingham County drivers safe.
This information can be found in our Lansing Car Accident Help Center.
