Maintaining a presence on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram is a fun way to spend your time. However, if you are seeking financial compensation through a personal injury claim in Michigan, your social media use could hurt your case.

Beware: Speed does kill!

Lawmakers raised the speed limit along many of Michigan's rural highways in 2017. Motorists who were once only able to lawfully travel 70 miles per hour (mph) along these roadways can now drive up to 75 mph. Injury crashes have soared since the speed limit has been increased along certain portions of U.S. Highways 127, 31, 10 and 127 and Interstates 75 and 69.

Some of them, unfortunately, intentionally harm and humiliate their vulnerable charges.

Driving an RV in the winter requires extra precautions

Some people only use their RVs during the spring and summer. However, if your RV is properly equipped and you feel ready to take on the weather conditions that a Michigan winter can bring, you may choose to take your RV on a winter road trip to enjoy the sights.
