Jackson County Pedestrian Accident

While reading the weekend news, I read a tragic story about a Jackson County Pedestrian Accident last week. According to Blackman Township Public Safety, Michelle Thrun was jogging on North Dettman Road when she was allegedly stuck by a vehicle driven By Karen Grant. Ms. Thrun suffered a serious injury to the brain.

Police went on to say that their investigation showed that the driver of the vehicle blacked out while driving and had previously blacked out before while driving. Drugs and alcohol were not involved. Ms. Grant has been charged in Jackson County District Court with felonious driving.

I  am very sorry to hear about this tragic auto accident and wish Ms. Thrun the fullest and speediest recovery possible. I hope that she suffers no permanent deficits.

Our Michigan car accident lawyers advise accident victims their legal rights. For this type of auto accident in Michigan, the injured pedestrian can submit a claim for Michigan No-Fault insurance benefits.  No-Fault benefits will cover her medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care, replacement services, and other benefits related to injuries suffered in the accident.  The injured pedestrian can claim these benefits even if she 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.
