Our Michigan pedestrian accident lawyers filed a lawsuit for a client injured in a Rochester Hills parking lot accident. He was walking through the Meijer parking lot in Rochester Hills, Michigan when he was struck by a car. He was knocked to the pavement and suffered serious injuries in the accident.
A person struck by car in a Meijers parking lot accident has the same legal rights as a person injured in an accident on a public road or highway. First, the injured person can file a personal injury claim against the negligent driver. This includes claims for damages such as for pain and suffering, disability, and scarring or permanent disfigurement.
Also, the accident victim can file a claim for Michigan No-Fault Insurance Benefits. These insurance claims include payment of medical bills, lost wages, household services, and attendant care services. An injured pedestrian can obtain No-Fault Insurance benefits even he or she did not own a vehicle or have their own auto insurance policy.
The injuries suffered in the accident include a concussion from striking his head on the pavement, a meniscus tear, and a neck injury. He has been diagnosed with herniated discs in his cervical spine. The lawsuit was filed against the negligent driver and also against our client’s own insurance company, AAA Insurance, for uninsured and underinsured motorists insurance benefits. The lawsuit seeks damages for the pain and suffering, disability, and other damages suffered in the pedestrian accident. No trial date has been set by the court.
