Ann Arbor Lawyers: Pedestrian Accidents
Students, senior citizens, school children - - the streets of Ann Arbor are busy with pedestrians, in-line skaters, and non-motorized vehicles including bicycles, skateboards and scooters. It seems that this activity, rather than putting drivers on alert, provides a dangerous distraction. When a pedestrian or skater is struck by a car, the individual, completely unprotected, is likely to suffer a head injury, paralysis, or death. The driver of the automobile may barely notice the impact.
