Our Rochester Hills attorneys recently settled a car versus pedestrian accident lawsuit on behalf of a man hit by a full size pick-up-truck while in a store parking lot. Our client was entering into the Meijer store in Rochester Hills, Michigan located at Avon and Rochester Road when he was struck. The truck driver that hit him was considered negligent and cited for failing to yield the right of way.
As a result of the collision, the pedestrian accident victim suffered serious injuries including a neck injury, knee injury, shoulder injury and exacerbation of pre-existing low back and left knee injuries. The injuries required long term care, physical therapy, and injections.
Our Rochester Hills car accident attorneys filed the lawsuit in the Oakland County Circuit Court. The claim sought damages for the pain and suffering and disability of the pedestrian victim and resulting injuries. We were able to help our client receive the maximum settlement before going to trial.
A pedestrian hit by car in a parking lot accident has the same legal rights as a pedestrian injured in an accident on a public road or highway. A driver in a parking lot has the legal duty to operate a vehicle in a safe and reasonable manner as a driver on the public streets. The failure to do so is considered negligent and an injured victim does have the rights to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver.
