A child injured in Michigan pedestrian car accident does have legal rights. First, the injured child can file a personal injury claim against the negligent driver. The lawsuit is brought by the parents of the child. This includes claims for damages such as for pain and suffering, disability, and scarring or permanent disfigurement.
Also, the injured child pedestrian can file a claim for Michigan No-Fault Insurance Benefits. These include claims for payment of medical bills, lost wages, household services, and attendant care services. If a child is injured in the accident, the child can obtain No-Fault Insurance benefits even if his parents did not have an auto insurance policy.
