Injured pedestrians can face a very difficult battle in the days, weeks and months after the accident. These accidents usually include very serious injuries for the pedestrian. Those injuries can mean that you need medical care, rehabilitative care and other intensive care. The long road to recovery can be a difficult and costly one.
You have the option of seeking compensation for the injuries you suffered. Your claim for compensation takes all of the factors of the accident into account. This includes what you were doing at the time of the accident and what the driver was doing at the time of the accident. This can sometimes be critical information in these cases.
One example of how your actions can impact a pedestrian crash case is that pedestrians have the right of way in crosswalks. Drivers are supposed to stop when a pedestrian is in a crosswalk. If a driver strikes you when you are in the crosswalk, the driver can be held accountable.
