    In addition to finding proof, personal injury lawyers also represent claimants in court. These legal professionals present the case in the court in a very professional manner and they talk on the behalf of their client.Insurance review

    Hey Bengt,
    Do your homework a little better. There are over 61,000 deer to car accidents in Michigan every year with 1,648 injuries according to the MDCC. That averages out to 167 crashes PER DAY (not annually).

    People don't realize how dangerous it can be to bump into a large animal.
    It's the same as a small bird can crush an aircraft or a dust particle can ruin a satellite.

    Down in Australia we don't have deer. Instead we have something even deadlier - WOMBATS!

    Last year i almost crashed into a deer and it was scary. Wish i would have read this post prior.

    Deer whistles work. They are cheap and can be bought at a truck stop or gas station. Driving by a herd of elk in one of my cars without one, they barely lifted their heads while grazing. Next time driving another of my cars' with one, all raised their heads and some ran when we were about 50 yards away.

    Would be fun to see a rundown of where you can keep roadkill and where you have to leave it...

    R2Dad - back in the day, those cars also had gun racks.

    Hitting a deer is something you'll never forget, that's for sure.

  • cooldude Posted: 10/1/2009 1:34pm PDT

    Thanks for the useful info.

    Deer season is now practically all year long in Michigan. They tromp through the yard and stand in the street from sun up until sun down. My husband hit two deer, in two different years on M-33 in northern Michigan. The accidents occured within 1/2 mile of each other and the same police officer came to the scene.

    I would give a fair amount of $$$ to bring the wolves back to more of the Lower 48. They would keep the deer in check in short order. I've hit THREE deer in 15 years up in New York State and done probably $2,000-plus of damage to my cars. No one even bothers to report deer hits any more 'cause the insurance cos will screw you bigtime.

    Very helpful tips. Having seen on two occasions lighter cars after a somewhat nasty run-in with a deer (think about the poor deer), pretty clear the days of essentially denting your several ton car/truck bumper are over. Can get dangerous.

  • greedo Posted: 10/1/2009 1:06pm PDT

    Oh deer. That goes right to the hart of the matter.

  • mee Posted: 10/1/2009 12:53pm PDT

    Helpful tips now if only people would remember them when Bambi pops out of the treeline

  • R2Dad Posted: 9/30/2009 10:07am PDT

    Thanks for the reminder. Back in the day when everyone drove 2 ton vehicles, a deer encounter would dent your fender but that was about it. These days with lower front ends and windscreens, that deer can just as likely end up in your lap!
