Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents

Michigan Personal Injury Lawyers

When cars strike pedestrians or cyclists, the consequences are often catastrophic. Without the protection provided by a seatbelt or surrounding vehicle, the pedestrian or cyclist is likely to absorb the full impact of the crash and suffer serious injuries.

At Ferris & Salter, P.C., we understand the long-term effects of serious injuries. We work to protect people who are injured as the result of the negligence of others. If someone you love has been injured in a car crash as a pedestrian or cyclist, you need our experience on your side. From our office in Ann Arbor, we represent injured clients and their families throughout Michigan.

In many places, cyclists are required to ride on the streets - but drivers don't share the road, resulting in accidents. Crosswalks are supposed to allow pedestrians to cross the streets safely, but crosswalks make no difference if drivers aren't paying attention. When this lack of attention causes serious injuries, drivers should be held accountable.

We work diligently to ensure that negligent people take responsibility for the harms they cause. Contact us today for a free case evaluation.
