Our Michigan car accident lawyers frequently represent clients injured in auto accidents in which a negligent driver backs out and causes the accident. Backing out accidents can be a very common cause of serious injury accident. In fact, the unsuspecting car accident victim is not prepared for the crash and often has little or no time to take any action to avoid being struck by the other automobile that is backing out.
Michigan Laws For Backing Out Accidents
Michigan laws have specific statutes that address accidents in which a driver is backing out and causes an accident with another automobile. These specific laws include that the at fault driver was negligent for:
- Backing said vehicle without keeping a proper observation or failing to act upon any observation made.
- Backing said vehicle without keeping a proper observation or failing to act upon any observation made, in violation of City of Detroit Code 38-3-13 as amended January 1, 1969.
- Failing to make a proper observation to the rear before backing out of a parking space and onto the traveled portion of the roadway.
In addition to these specific laws on backing out, there are other claims for general negligence that our auto accident attorneys use to prove and win a red light accident case.
