Each year the Michigan State Police updates the prior years auto accident statistics and publish them here. The data includes the number of crashes, number of injuries and fatalities along with other information. The 2013 update should be out soon and as an overall statistical trend, Michigan auto accidents have been decreasing. This is believed to be due to a combination of decreased drunk driving and to a lesser degree improvements in auto safety. Despite the decrease in Michigan PIP claims, the number of PIP claim law suits, and the need for corresponding Michigan PIP claims investigations has increased. With the record setting cold and snow this winter, and a plethora of accidents, the 2014 number should be very interesting.
