Whether you were hit by a car while crossing the street, walking in a parking lot, or jogging down the sidewalk, you have rights too. Pedestrian motor vehicle accidents are classified as Motor Vehicle Accidents and are treated the same as a motor vehicle accident involving a car, van, truck, eBike, motorcycle, boat, ATV or snowmobile.
Pedestrian accidents can occur when you least expect them and when you least need another complication in your life. If you have been in a previous accident, you are familiar with how frustrating the process can be. If you have never been involved in an accident, you likely will have questions on what to expect and what needs to be done. If you, or a family member, have been injured in a pedestrian accident, you deserve to have your questions answered and your rights properly protected.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS
Injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident are often significant and permanent, with a devastating impact on your life. You may not be able to return to work following the accident, leaving you with a loss of income. You will likely be in need of ongoing medical treatment as well, which can quickly become costly. As such, claims for injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident commonly include claims for damages for pain and suffering, income loss, medical and rehabilitation treatment and out-of-pocket expenses.
There are different time restrictions and deadlines to make these claims. It is important that you notify the correct insurance company promptly in order to protect your rights.
