Were You Harmed In A Pedestrian Accident?
Under Pennsylvania insurance laws, all individuals purchasing auto insurance must select a “tort” option that determines the extent of compensation you may pursue from the negligent party responsible for your injuries or the death of a family member in an accident. If you are a pedestrian injured by any motor vehicle, you are entitled to seek damages for pain, suffering and economic damages, regardless of your tort option.
Many people mistakenly believe the old adage that pedestrians always have the right of way. While it may be prudent for drivers to yield the right of way to an unprotected pedestrian, there are times when the pedestrian is not protected by the law. Understanding the laws and knowing how courts have ruled in previous pedestrian accident injury and death cases is an important factor in seeking compensation.
