Three Pedestrians Injured by a Vehicle in Jackson

I saw a story in the paper today about three pedestrians injured by a vehicle in Jackson on Saturday. According to the Jackson Police, Jessie Chaffin and his children were waiting to cross the southbound lanes of Wisner Street, between Argyle and North, when a Ford Edge, driven by Susan Kill of Jackson County, allegedly struck them causing serious injury. Jessie Chaffin and his son were taken to Allegiance Health and his daughter was taken to an Ann Arbor Hospital with a head injury. Police are still investigating this tragic accident.

I am very sorry to hear about this tragic auto accident and wish Jessie Chaffin and his children the fullest and speediest recovery possible. I hope that they suffer no permanent deficits.

Our Michigan car accident lawyers advise accident victims of their legal rights. For this type of auto accident in Michigan, the injured pedestrians can submit a claim for Michigan No-Fault insurance benefits. No-Fault benefits will cover their medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care, replacement services, and other benefits related to injuries suffered in the accident. The injured pedestrians can claim these benefits even if they did not have a Michigan automobile insurance policy.

In addition, the car accident injury victims may also have claims for personal injuries against any driver determined to be at fault in this auto accident. The insurance company for the negligent driver typically pays a settlement for this type of case. In this lawsuit, the injured victims can claim damages and compensation for the injuries suffered in the accident. At the very least, the injured parties should hire the best possible lawyer to look into these possibilities.

An experienced Michigan car accident lawyer can assist the victims with this type of claim. Auto accident victims should not speak with the insurance adjuster for the negligent driver before consulting with an attorney.
