Getting hit by a car as a pedestrian will severely injure or even kill you. Sadly, I often see that the insurance companies and even sometimes the police blame the pedestrian for the accident. This happens because the pedestrian is in the hospital and the driver of the vehicle is the only one at the scene to talk to the police. The driver may lie for their own self-interest. The insurance company may refuse to pay you at all, or try to reduce the amount of payment by using the police report as an excuse. I see this happen frequently even when the pedestrian was hit in a crosswalk. Unfortunately, this regularly happens to young children.
Dealing with hospital and doctor visits, medical bills, lost wages, and ongoing pain and suffering is extremely stressful. After the accident you are probably asking yourself: What are my rights after I was injured in the pedestrian accident? Do I have a case? Who will pay my medical bills? What doctors should I see? How will I pay my bills if I’m too injured to work? How much is my pedestrian accident case worth? How long will it take to settle my pedestrian accident case?
