Rochester Car Accident Lawyer Files Pedestrian Injury Lawsuit

Comments (0)

Our Rochester car accident lawyers recently filed a pedestrian injury lawsuit for a client in the Oakland County Circuit Court.  The case arises out of the acts of a negligent driver who failed to see our client, during daylight hours, crossing the street in a crosswalk at the intersection of Woodward and Oak in the City of Rochester.  The negligent driver was taking a left hand turn and failed to yield the right-of-way and simply failed to observe a pedestrian in the crosswalk.

Our client suffered very severe injuries in the accident.  These injuries include significant facial lacerations, broken teeth, a fractured and dislocated shoulder, as well as, a collapsed lung.  She is a registered nurse and is unable to return to employment due to the serious nature of her injuries.  Her medical bills, wage loss, and other no-fault insurance benefits are being paid by her own auto insurance company.

The lawsuit alleges that the driver was negligent in driving the auto and failed to yield to the pedestrian who had the right of way.  The suit seeks damages for her pain and suffering, disability, and scars and disfigurement caused by the accident.  No trial date has been set by the court.

A person hit by a car while crossing in a crosswalk with a green light has a very good case against the negligent driver. In fact, there is a specific Michigan statute, MCL 257.660c, that addresses the legal rights of pedestrians in crosswalks. If you or someone you know suffers injuries after being hit by car while crossing the street in a crosswalk, you do have legal rights.

We will discuss your case with you and explain your legal rights so that you may receive compensation for your injuries.
