When a pedestrian, biker, roller blader, runner, or jogger is legally using a county or city street—such as when in a crosswalk or on a green “walk” sign—and he or she is hit by a car or truck, the injuries can be severe. Pedestrians are more vulnerable to injury and death on a roadway than the occupants of a motor vehicle, as drivers and passengers benefit from safety features such as seatbelts, airbags, and roll cages.
Certain statistics reveal that more than 78,000 pedestrians are seriously injured each year by cars and trucks. If you were struck by a vehicle while walking, biking, or running, our firm can help. With over a century of collective legal experience, our Michigan pedestrian accident attorneys understand the complexities involved in these types of personal injury claims. We can help you fight for the full, fair recovery you deserve.

Compensation in Pedestrian Accident Cases
As previously mentioned, pedestrians tend to suffer catastrophic injuries when they are hit by cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other motor vehicles. Many pedestrian accidents are ultimately fatal. The consequences of such an accident are often extensive and far-reaching, affecting both the victim and his or her family members and loved ones. While financial compensation cannot undo the suffering you have been through, it can help with the cost of your damages following the accident.
Depending on the circumstances involved in your case, you may be able to recover compensation for the following:
- Medical expenses, both immediate and long-term
- Lost income and/or wages
- Reduced or lost earning capacity
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental/emotional distress
- Reduced quality of life
- Loss of companionship
- Funeral costs (if your loved one was killed)
