Pedestrian Accidents & Injuries
Walking is an environmentally friendly means of getting from place to place, has healthful benefits and is an enjoyable pastime for many people throughout the U.S. Unfortunately, walking in suburban or rural areas may come with risks. Motorists should be aware of pedestrians at all times, but a distracted driver may strike an unsuspecting pedestrian virtually anywhere: in an intersection, in a parking lot, or even on the sidewalk where a pedestrian should be safest.
You have the right to consult an attorney if you, a friend or a family member has been injured in a pedestrian accident. Personal injury law offers an accident victim the opportunity to bring the responsible party to justice for their actions and in civil court this is achieved through monetary damages. With the help of a Michigan personal injury lawyer, you can seek financial compensation for medical care, any lost wages you may have suffered from being unable to work while injured, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and future medical care as well.
