Macomb, MI (January 19, 2024) - On the 16th of January, 2024, officers from the Fraser Department of Public Safety responded to a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian at the intersection of 15 Mile Road and Hayes Road.

According to the preliminary investigation, a landscaping company truck engaged in snow plowing and salt application took a reckless turn into the parking lot of a hair salon and collided with an 86-year-old woman in the parking lot who had just finished getting her hair done. Following the initial impact, the truck rapidly reversed, striking the woman a second time. The woman suffered fatal injuries in the accident and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The driver of the truck was apprehended at the scene, although no charges have been filed at this time. The Fraser Department of Public Safety continues its investigation into the incident.

We offer our sympathies to the family of the woman killed in this crash.

Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Michigan

Macomb, MI – Pedestrian Killed in Crash on 15 Mile Rd near Hayes RdAccording to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every 10–15 seconds, an automotive accident takes place somewhere in the United States. It's no surprise that vehicle accidents are the leading cause of personal injury litigation in today's courts, given the abysmal national and Michigan-specific collision statistics.

Insurance companies in Michigan often do not determine who was at fault in an accident due to "no-fault" insurance. First-party benefits (monetary damages) and non-monetary losses (such as pain and suffering) are both recoverable in a lawsuit against the culpable party.

Even if you believe your injuries are minor and the situation is straightforward, you should still see a lawyer if you've been in a car accident. While it's understandable that victims might be concerned about paying for legal representation, studies have shown that plaintiffs whose counsel defends them actually get larger payouts. Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they don't get paid until their client does.

In many situations, it would be beneficial to have legal representation. Your lawyer may act as your representative in all interactions with insurers and other parties. Your attorney will investigate all of your options to determine who is at fault in an accident and why you should be compensated. Interviewing potential witnesses and collecting relevant information are two steps in this approach.
