With a law office in Sterling Heights, our auto accident attorneys give you a list of local roads to avoid
Our attorneys handle numerous car and truck accident cases on the east side of Michigan, and many years ago we opened up our Sterling Heights law office for our Macomb County clients. So it was with particular interest that we read the new data from the South East Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG) that shows the intersections with the most auto accidents in Sterling Heights.
We hope the following information will remind you to take extra caution in these areas, which can become increasingly congested with shoppers, people taking their kids to school and rush hour traffic stemming from all of the local businesses and subdivisions.
