I just recently moved to Sterling Heights to say yes to a new job offer after living in Ann Arbor for the past 19 years of my life.
It was a difficult decision to make because Ann Arbor is absolutely pretty.
As the name suggests, the village is full of shrubs, even along the University of MI Drag where all of the students pass by on their way to classes each day. I never saw myself leaving Ann Arbor—it’s where I was a baby and raised. But with unemployment plus sides about to run out, I had to find a new job by any means necessary. My new existence in Sterling Heights has taken time to get used to. It’s regularly said to be the safest village in MI with a population over a hundred thousand and many of the residents are kind and loving. Still, there are car accidents here like there are all throughout the state of MI. The number of personal injury law firms in this area is mind boggling, with specialists ranging from nursing home negligence to animal bites and animal attacks. Although the car accident attorneys are in high numbers here, they’re surprisingly outnumbered by a swarm of firms handling things like birth injuries and negligence, car accidents, and mass court cases. I hope I’m never in need of a personal injury attorney, but it’s nice to think that there are so many to pick from if I’m ever unfortunate enough to fall victim to a life-altering injury beyond my means. Sterling Heights is not Ann Arbor, but if I had to choose one village in MI to raise children, I would do it here in a heartbeat.
