Macomb County Child Pedestrian Accident AttorneysChild pedestrian cases are often under valued. From the adult driver perspective the child is always at fault. In fact these cases are often referred to as “child dart out cases”. You can bet that the injured child didn’t come up with that name. It is not generally true that the child is responsible for his or her injuries. Under Michigan Law young children are not capable of negligence as a matter of law.
When the incident is viewed from the standpoint of the child, most cases are the fault of the adult driver. Generally there were cues and clues that the driver missed in failing to see the child before impact . In residential areas where children live and play drivers must exercise a high degree of alertness . This is especially so where parked cars might block the view of the driver.
These cases take careful analysis and expert input to fully understand the role of negligence in the production of the injury.
