I was stopped at a red light and was rear-ended by another car. Can I sue the driver that rear-ended me for my injuries?

A driver who rear-ends another driver is almost always determined to be negligent under Michigan law.  There are very few exceptions and every driver must travel at a safe speed to be able to stop within the assured clear distance ahead, so as not rear-end another vehicle.  If your injuries are serious, you probably have a good case against the other driver.
