A pedestrian is anyone who is not driving a motorized vehicle on the road. Accidents involving pedestrians are extremely dangerous. They are more serious than other types of accidents because a car can cause significant damage to an unprotected person even when moving slowly. Almost all pedestrian accidents cause injuries, and many are fatal.
The law treats pedestrian accidents in the same way that it does motor vehicle accidents. Victims are entitled to compensation for any injuries sustained as a result of the accident.
The details of who was at fault in the accident will vary depending on what occurred, and each case will be unique.
