Yes, you can sue a driver that changes lanes and caused Michigan car accident. Changing lane accidents are a common cause of serious injury because these crashes often take place at high speed. Under Michigan statute, an injured auto accident victim can sue the negligent driver that changes lanes and caused the car accident. These Michigan statutes include:
- Failing, before turning, from a direct line, to see that such movement could be made in safety, in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. §257.648.
