Pedestrian Accidents in Michigan

Detroit, MI - Pedestrian Collision, Injuries on I-94 Near 23 MileOfficials say that the national and state rates of pedestrian accidents are rising. In fact, of the more than 2,300 pedestrians who were hurt in accidents in Michigan last year, nearly all of them sustained serious injuries. What's more, there were nearly 150 deaths caused by these incidents, down slightly from the year before but still tragically elevated over previous years.

Adding insult to injury, most pedestrian accidents occur because motorists are careless or reckless. The most prevalent causes of pedestrian accidents include but are not limited to the following:

  • Intentional or careless speeding, especially in densely-populated urban areas.
  • Driving through an intersection in a red light zone while pedestrians are present.
  • Violating posted speed limits and other rules of the road.
  • Excessive speed in residential areas, particularly in neighborhoods frequented by children.
  • Backing out of private parking lots and driveways without checking for pedestrians.
  • Making turns at crosswalks without checking for oncoming pedestrians.
  • Distraction by mobile phones, radio dials, and other electronic devices.
  • Reckless driving in hazardous circumstances (such as heavy rain or snow).
  • Getting behind the wheel while impaired by drugs and alcohol or driving while fatigued.

Sadly, when pedestrians are hit by a car, they are at a significantly increased risk of severe injury and death. Vehicles, including SUVs, vans, and trucks, typically weigh over 4,000 pounds. Among the most typical injuries are:

  • Concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Paralysis and quadriplegia from spinal cord damage and related injuries.
  • Facial disfiguration and skull fractures.
  • Multiple broken bones or fractures, nervous system injury, and death.
