Deer Accidents with Cars in Michigan

Comments (0)

October and November are the two highest months for car-deer accidents.  There are well over 60,000 such accidents each year in Michigan, costing at least $130 million annually.  That averages about $2100 per vehicle.  In 2007, 11 people were killed and 1614 people were injured.

To avoid damages from striking a deer, drivers can:

  • Drive cautiously and slowly in peak months especially between dusk and dawn when most accidents occur
  • Do not swerve into other lanes of traffic or off the road if you are about to hit a deer
  • Brake firmly and keep both hands on the wheel
  • Guide the vehicle to a controlled stop and then steer off the road

If you are injured after hitting a deer, Michigan No Fault benefits will cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and provide you with other benefits just like the policy would for any other auto accident.  For more information on your rights after a Michigan car accident with a deer, call our top rated lawyers today at (800) 606-1717.  We offer a Free, No Obligation Case Review and will be able to help you obtain all the no-fault benefits you are entitled to under law.
