Pedestrian Accident Lawyer in Farmington Hills

Pedestrian Right of Way in Michigan

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2011, more than 4,400 pedestrians were killed in some kind of accident in the United States. In spite of right of way laws, 25% of these fatalities were due to drivers failing to yield the right of way. In order to protect those people who are walking along roadways or crossing streets, there are very specific pedestrian traffic laws in the state of Michigan. Unfortunately, these laws are not always followed. As long as a pedestrian is lawfully crossing a street within a crosswalk or walking along a sidewalk, any car accident or bicycle accident involving a pedestrian will likely be the fault of the driver or cyclist. The only time when a pedestrian may be at fault is if they are illegally crossing the road ("jay walking"), or if they are walking in the street instead of on a sidewalk.

Injuries Sustained in Pedestrian Accidents

When a pedestrian is hit by a car, truck, bicycle, or other vehicle, personal injury is highly likely. Incidents of wrongful death can even occur in more extreme cases. Due to the fact that pedestrians wear no real form of protection, they may suffer severe cuts and bruises, or even catastrophic injuries such as broken bones, traumatic brain injury, or spinal cord injury. Many pedestrian accidents are also hit-and-run accidents, where the guilty motorist flees the scene before the authorities arrive. With my help as a top Farmington Hills personal injury lawyer from Abrahams Law, I could assist in holding the other party responsible and win the payment you need.
