Motor vehicle accidents where pedestrians get injured can occur for many different reasons. Poor road conditions, adverse weather, or the negligence of another driver are all potential contributing factors to a pedestrian getting injured.
Pedestrians can suffer from cuts, bruises, whiplash to multiple fractures, as well as injuries of the brain and spinal cord. In the most extreme cases, a motor vehicle accident involving a pedestrian can be deadly.
Victims of pedestrian accident usually require a lengthy rehabilitation program following the extensive medical care administered following the accident. Oftentimes the resulting loss of wages and other expenses can quickly become overwhelming for a victim’s family both emotionally and financially.
When it comes to pedestrian accidents, the same rules as other car accidents apply, except with one major exception – the at-fault party must prove that they are not liable for the accident as opposed to the victim having to prove the liability of the other party. This variance in the legislation allows for the pedestrians to be eligible to get higher amounts of compensation.
