We Fight Vigorously For The Rights Of Injured Michigan Pedestrians
Being hit by a car or truck as a pedestrian can cause you serious and permanent injuries. Many drivers fail to understand that pedestrians always have the right of way in a crosswalk.
As highly trained and experienced attorneys, we have been providing quality legal services and representation to our injury clients since 2005. As a small firm, we work one-on-one with clients. Each of us is deeply committed to pursuing justice and obtaining the compensation that a serious injury requires and deserves. Call to speak with us: 616-537-1016.
We Are Selective About The Cases We Take
Put succinctly, we only take the cases in which we believe we can help. When we take your case, we work closely with you to ensure that you are apprised of each step of the process. We also do a thorough investigation of the event so that we have all the facts. As attorneys who do a good deal of personal injury work, we understand the need to gather comprehensive facts, whether you were in a car wreck, involved in a bicycle accident or were otherwise harmed. As trial attorneys, we are both agile negotiators who want to resolve issues as efficiently as possible but also seasoned courtroom professionals who will, when warranted, pursue your case to trial. We do this to obtain fair and maximum compensation for you.
Why Are More Pedestrians Being Struck?
Unlike the driver of a car or truck, a pedestrian has no protection from impact. So, when a walker or jogger is hit, it can be quite serious, even when hit at a very low speed. Second, newer makes of cars – particularly SUVs – inhibit a driver’s ability to see those who are lower than their hood. Third, more drivers today are distracted by their phones – they are texting or looking up information instead of watching the road. After a collision, we go through the accident report to suss out what behavior or issue caused your injuries.
