A pedestrian is at a great disadvantage in a collision with a driver or passenger in a car or truck accident. The pedestrian does not have the benefit of a car body surrounding him or her, and is often injured badly. Hit-and-run accidents are not uncommon when a pedestrian is involved in a crash. An injured pedestrian often suffers a serious or catastrophic injury, and may be entitled to compensation to help cover loss related to the accident.
Pedestrians are typically going about their business, walking to and from stores, in parking lots or on hiking trails. A driver of a car or truck may collide with a pedestrian for a number of reasons:
- The driver of the motor vehicle "didn't see" the pedestrian.
- One or the other committed a traffic violation.
- The car or truck was speeding.
- A jogger crossed a street without checking for oncoming traffic.
