Our pedestrian accident lawyers in Southfield, Michigan recently settled a car versus pedestrian accident claim on behalf of a man who suffered serious injuries when the driver of a sport utility vehicle ran into him while he was exiting the Meijer store in Southfield located at 12 Mile Rd. and Telegraph.
Our client suffered a fractured ankle which required surgical repair and resulted in scarring that would be considered a serious permanent disfigurement. In addition, long term in-patient hospitalization and a long recovery including the use of a wheelchair, walker and cane to walk is also required by our client as a result of his injuries.
The driver was cited for failing to yield the right of way at the scene of the incident and considered at-fault. The driver was on his cell phone speaking to his wife at the time of the collision. He also admitted that his windows were foggy and he did not see the pedestrian.
The pedestrian accident claim sought damages for the pain and suffering and disability caused by the parking lot accident and resulting injuries. Our Southfield pedestrian accident lawyers were not only successful in helping the victim obtain the compensation he rightfully deserved but also settled the claim before trial.
