Question:

What Can I Do If I Was Hit By a Car as a Pedestrian?

Answer:

The other day, a gentleman called my office. He had been involved in a collision with a vehicle as a pedestrian. He wanted to know in what ways his claim might be different than some others.Pedestrian injury Claims One of the differences between a pedestrian injury and an injury when you’re in a vehicle is that when you’re in a car, you have airbags around you, you have a metal frame, doors and windshields; you’re protected. As a pedestrian, there’s nothing protecting you from that other vehicle. Quite often, we see people that when hit, people can be pulled under the vehicles, thrown many feet away from the vehicle, and they quite often have very significant injuries including broken bones, severe scarring from road rash, etc. In those ways, being hit by a car as a pedestrian can be far different than when you’re in a vehicle.
