Pedestrian Accidents in Michigan
Pedestrian deaths continue to increase year after year while passenger car deaths are dropping across the country. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, walkers are 1.5 times more likely to be killed in an accident. Pedestrians have minimal protection in the case of a collision, making them more susceptible to suffering fatal injuries in the event of a crash.
There is little protecting a pedestrian from the full impact of a serious accident. This means that traffic accidents involving pedestrians often result in severe to life-threatening injuries. In the event of a collision, pedestrians are vulnerable to suffering from life-changing injuries and other damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses. These accidents are known to result in life-changing and even fatal injuries. In some cases, injured parties can recover lost compensation with the help of a qualified Walker car accident lawyer and hold the party liable for the crash responsible for resulting damages. This is sometimes the only option to obtain the full value of their claim.
