Pedestrian struck by alleged drunk driver

Because pedestrian accident victims can suffer such catastrophic injuries, it is important for them to be familiar with the legal rights afforded to them following an unexpected pedestrian accident, as can be seen by one recent incident. There, in a Michigan community a couple hours west of the Wayne County area, a pedestrian accident left the victim critically injured. The 41-year old victim was transported to the hospital following the wreck, which appears to have been caused by an alleged drunk driver. The 38-year old driver was arrested at the scene of the accident on suspicion of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

3 common causes of slip and fall accidents

Slipping and falling can have serious consequences. In fact, approximately 1 million people go to the emergency room every year because of slipping and falling, according to the National Floor Safety Institute. Slip and fall accidents can cause torn ligaments, bone fractures, traumatic brain injuries and even death. 

The problem of distracted driving in Michigan

Michigan is no stranger to the problem of distracted driving.
