While crossing the street is a skill everybody learns, it is not something that can be taken for granted. Every year, thousands of pedestrians are injured. If you are injured, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries. Be sure you get all the information you can about the accident. Secure any evidence available, find out the names and contact information of witnesses, and get the names and insurance information of the driver involved. Witnesses are especially important to furnish evidence as to whose negligence caused the injuries. In general, pedestrians have the right of way. You will be questioned as to whether you utilized due care in crossing the road, used proper crossing locations, etc.
You may want to contact an attorney to assist you.
If you are a pedestrian and you are injured in a car accident, you may receive compensation for your injuries. Be sure that you see a doctor immediately. You will have medical insurance through a no-fault insurance company.
