A pedestrian is anyone who is not driving a motor vehicle on the road. Accidents involving pedestrians pose a significant risk. They are more serious than other types of accidents because a car can seriously injure an unprotected person even when moving slowly. Almost all pedestrian collisions result in injuries, and many are even fatal.
Accidents involving pedestrians are treated by the law in the same way that accidents involving motor vehicles are. Victims are entitled to compensation for any injuries sustained as a result of the accident.
If you or a loved one is injured in a pedestrian accident and believe it was the fault of someone else, you should seek the advice of an experienced Personal Injury Attorney to help you with your claim.
