We recently settled an Oakland County car accident lawsuit on behalf of the family of a woman who suffered fatal injuries in a pedestrian accident. The pedestrian was crossing Woodward Avenue in the City of Ferndale when a car struck her in the roadway near the median. She is survived by her two minor children, her parents, and her siblings. A lawsuit was filed against the negligent motorist and the owner of the car involved in the accident. The case settled shortly before the scheduled jury trial.
Between the years 2005-2007, statistics were gathered from seven major county's in Michigan: Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St. Clair, Washtenaw, and Wayne. Out of these seven, Wayne County had the highest amount of fatal crashes at 487, followed by Oakland County (183) and Macomb County (147). The lowest of these seven was St. Clair with 52 fatal crashes. In 2007 the average age of the drivers who were involved in auto accidents in the State of Michigan were 35.1 years and over 23.4% of the fatal accidents in the state were involving persons in the age group 16 to 24.
