Understanding Pedestrian Accidents and Injuries
A recent study found that more than 4,000 Americans were killed each year as a result of a vehicle/pedestrian accident, and over 50,000 were treated for non-fatal injuries in emergency rooms. Many of those injured or killed were over 65 years old, with the elderly person falling or being hit by a car in the vast majority of cases. In many cases when a child is injured, they are lawfully crossing the street to or from a school bus stop when they are struck.
Alcohol consumption and excessive speeds cause many vehicle/pedestrian accidents in Michigan. Distractions from phones and other devises increasingly lead to accidents injuring pedestrians as well.

In an accident involving a car and a pedestrian, the pedestrian rarely fares well. A life can end in the blink of an eye, or someone who was healthy a moment before may face surgeries, therapy, months or years of recovery, a lifetime of pain--and a mountain of medical bills.
