Pedestrian accidents

While we are taught to share the road and that pedestrians have the right of way, it is not something that can be taken for granted. Every year, hundreds of pedestrians are injured and killed in a Michigan car accident. In fact, pedestrian deaths are second only to occupant deaths in motor vehicle accidents. If you or your loved one was injured in a pedestrian accident in Detroit, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries. Being involved in a pedestrian accident can result in some of the most serious injuries, often altering a person's life permanently.

Some of the most common injuries resulting from a pedestrian accident include:

  • Broken bones
  • Fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Amputations
  • Death

Michigan No-Fault Benefits After a Pedestrian Accident

Michigan is a no-fault state. This means that pedestrians injured in an accident involving a motor vehicle, even a hit-and-run-accident, may be able to collect no-fault insurance benefits. No-fault insurance benefits can include payment of medical bill expenses, lost wages, attendant care services (nursing services), and more.

It is important that the attorney you choose to represent you in your Michigan pedestrian accident lawsuit has a complete understanding and thorough knowledge of Michigan’s no-fault laws. Without that knowledge, you may only be able to collect compensation for your pain and suffering and not obtain the no-fault insurance benefits you are also entitled to from the insurance company.

Retain the Services of Our Detroit Personal Injury Lawyers

Because Michigan has a strict statute of limitations for filing this type of claim, it is important that you do not wait to consult with our skilled legal team. Waiting too long to file a lawsuit could mean that your case could be barred forever and you will not be able to collect compensation for your injuries.

Our attorneys will handle your case from the initial investigation, gathering all evidence including contact information of witnesses and insurance information of the driver involved. We will represent you on a contingency fee basis, which means there are no legal fees to you whatsoever unless you receive a settlement or recovery.
