With summer tourism in full swing here in Northern Michigan, particularly with the upcoming Cherry Festival and 4th of July festivities in all our harbor towns and area inland lake communities, it is never too late or too redundant to advocate against drunk driving.  It affects us all.  The risks are immeasurable and sadly, in some instances, irreplaceable.  But there really is a simple solution: call a cab if you have been drinking.  There are ample resources in the region to accommodate and get you back home (or to your hotel) safely.   The reality is, however, these next two weeks prove to be one of the more active statistical drunk driving arrest periods in Northern Michigan.  Whether you have been injured by a drunk driver or you have been arrested for drunk driving, our experienced trial attorneys here at Smith & Johnson, Attorneys, P.C., can help.  Please call us at 1-866-946-0700.

It is that joyous, patriotic celebratory time of the summer when we gather together and watch municipal firework shows. The calendar of fireworks shows is considerable when you consider they will take place in so many of our beautiful communities here in northern Michigan. But it is always helpful to remind ourselves of the inherent danger these fireworks shows do present. The best place to watch a fireworks show is at a distance the furthest possible so that you are located away from (a) the launch platform; and away from (b) the debris field. Incidents injuring spectators has happened (e.g., 1997 Charlevoix) and continues to occur each year. If the unfortunate occasion of fireworks show injury does occur, people are welcomed to contact Smith & Johnson, Attorneys, for a free consultation to learn more about their legal rights.
