A Top Michigan Bicycle and Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Bicycle and Pedestrian Injury Accidents in Southeast Michigan

Michigan Bicycle and Pedestrian Accident Attorney

When bike riders or pedestrians are hit by cars, there can be wildly different perspectives on who was at fault. The injured party asserts that the driver was inattentive, aggressive or violating traffic laws. The driver claims that he or she had the right of way or otherwise blames the victim.

The team at Hone Law can promptly investigate and vigorously advocate for victims of pedestrian accidents and bike accidents. If you, your child or other family member was struck by a motor vehicle while crossing the street or riding a bike, we are committed to holding the driver accountable for the serious injuries and the collateral losses.

I am John S. Hone, an experienced personal injury lawyer who has fought for the rights of the injured for 25 years. Based in Birmingham, MI, I have handled pedestrian injury and bicycle accident cases in the Downriver communities, Greater Detroit and throughout Michigan. Contact me today for a free consultation.

The defense will try to shift the blame to the injured person such as claiming that the pedestrian crossed against the light, jaywalked or darted out. If the defense can even establish comparative negligence – riding without a bike helmet, wearing dark clothes at night, crossing where there is no crosswalk, etc. – the victim’s compensation can be reduced accordingly.

We work to show that the negligence was solely or chiefly on the part of the driver such as:
  • Failing to see the walker/jogger/rider
  • Rolling stop or running a red light
  • Failure to yield when turning left
  • Hitting or cutting off a person when turning right
  • Encroaching on a bike lane, shoulder or crosswalk
  • Texting while driving or talking on a cellphone
  • Eating, drinking, smoking or otherwise distracted
  • Speeding or driving aggressively

I act swiftly to preserve evidence and talk to witnesses. I also have access to experts, such as accident reconstruction or human factors specialists, who can help prove liability if necessary.
