If you were a pedestrian in an auto accident, then you have the same right as anyone else to seek compensation for your injuries and losses. Because pedestrian injuries tend to be very serious, these cases can be more complicated. There may be more pain and suffering, mental anguish, long term disability, etc. The at-fault driver may also try to indicate hat the pedestrian was at fault for the accident. Pedestrian auto accidents require the experience of a qualified attorney to ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive the maximum compensation on your claim.
