Our Michigan pedestrian bus accident lawyers represent clients who suffer serious injuries from being hit by a bus while walking on public streets and roads. Many times, the bus accident occurs while the person is pedestrian in a public crosswalk, in a parking lot, or at a major intersection. The bus driver that causes the accident is often distracted or simply not paying attention to the pedestrian before the accident. In many circumstances, the accident victim is struck by the mirror or another part of the bus.
Legal Rights of Pedestrians Hit By Buses
A person injured in a Michigan pedestrian-bus accident does have legal rights. First, the injured pedestrian can file a personal injury claim against the negligent driver and the bus company. This includes claims for damages such as for pain and suffering, disability, and scarring or permanent disfigurement. In cases involving death, the surviving family members can file a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit.
Also, the injured pedestrian can file a claim for Michigan No-Fault Insurance Benefits even if he or she did not own a motor vehicle or have their own auto no-fault insurance policy. These benefits include lifetime payment of medical expenses, wage loss, replacement care services, and attendant care services. These benefits can be substantial and are often overlooked when an experience attorney is not consulted.
