Bus Accident Settlement – Ann Arbor Pedestrian Injury Lawyer

Our Ann Arbor bus accident lawyer recently settled a pedestrian accident case in the Washtenaw Circuit Court.  Our client, a University of Michigan employee, was crossing the street in downtown Ann Arbor.  While in the crosswalk, an Ann Arbor Transportation Authority Bus turned into the crosswalk and struck him, knocking him down and causing numerous injuries.  A lawsuit was filed and later settled at a mediation proceeding just prior to the scheduled jury trial.  Several videos taken by the bus cameras provided necessary evidence to prove liability against the bus driver.


In the year 2009 there were a total of 419 bus accidents in Washtenaw County. Ann Arbor bus accidents accounted for 149 (35.6%) of those accidents. These bus accidents resulted in 3 fatalities (none in Ann Arbor), and another 82 people who suffered injuries, 26 of which were in Ann Arbor. There were no pedestrians involved in any of the crashes in Ann Arbor bus accidents, nor the rest of Washtenaw County.

Buckfire, “The Ultimate Michigan Car Accident Handbook,” has been called the best book ever written for persons injured in Michigan car accidents.
