My garage wall bricks seems to be cracking where the brick wall contacts


My garage wall bricks seems to be cracking where the brick wall contacts the concrete slab. Also the concrete driveway & walk seem to be pulling away from the garage wall. I'm would like to know what has caused this issue & what I should do to fix it.

You can see 5 pictures at the link below. The first 2 are the right wall when facing this garage (this garage is attached to the house).
The next 3 are the left wall.

The garage & house are in Michigan.

The pictures are here:

Thanks In Advance,
Uni

The brick is taking on unnecessary water, freezign in winter, and the brick are spalling. Replace the concrete that has settled and you will fix the cause......
