Types of Pedestrian Accident Claims

Many pedestrian accidents occur when the pedestrian is in the crosswalk. When cars make right or left-hand turns, they place the pedestrian right in the line of the moving car. Regardless of where they occur, however, it is important for pedestrians to know what their rights are following an accident.

When a pedestrian is involved in a car accident, there are two separate claims to pursue:

  • No-Fault Claim: Automatic, no-fault benefits provide coverage for medical treatment and lost earnings, up to 80% of your income or $2,000 per month, whichever is less.
  • Bodily Injury Liability Claim: This liability claim is aimed at the owner and operator of the car involved in the accident that seeks additional compensation for economic and emotional damages.

In the course of a pedestrian accident claim, the court will seek to determine the amount of fault. Under comparative fault regulations, the injured party is eligible for compensation minus the percentage they are found to be at fault. For example, if a pedestrian is entitled to $100,000 in compensation but 15% at fault for the accident, they can recover $85,000 for their injury. Working with a personal injury lawyer can help ensure that the responsible party’s fault is maximized.
