Your pedestrian accident case: Get compensation

As a pedestrian, your life is equally important as anyone else near or on the roads. Whether you're sharing a space with cyclists, crossing a busy roadway at an intersection or walking through a parking lot, you deserve to be treated with respect and to have drivers recognize when you have a right to cross.

If you're hit because a driver is being negligent or has become distracted, it's important for you to file a claim as soon as possible. While medical help is the first thing you need to focus on, your claim will only have a certain amount of time when it can be filed. After that, a statute of limitations may kick in, making it harder to get the compensation you need.

Every year, around 5,000 pedestrians die in motor-vehicle related accidents. With another 76,000 suffering injuries by being hit by a car or truck, it's no small problem. You will need to file a claim against the driver to seek out compensation for your injuries.

To prove that you deserve compensation in your personal injury case, you'll need to show that the driver owed you a legal duty of care; then you need to show that the duty was breached. Following this, you'll want to show the court how you were injured. Finally, show the damages and injuries you've suffered; you'll want to provide evidence like a loss of income, your medical records and more.

Our website has more information on personal injuries and pedestrian accidents, so you can learn how to file a claim for compensation.
