What You Need To Know If You Get Hit By A Car As A Pedestrian 

What You Need To Know If You Get Hit By A Car As A Pedestrian 
Many people unfortunately do at some point get hit by a car as a pedestrian. These accidents can raise a host of questions? Can I get my medical bills paid? What about lost wage reimbursement? Am I entitled to a pain and suffering settlement if personal injuries were sustained? Here is what you need to know if you get hit by a car as a pedestrian in a car accident. 
First, regardless of fault, the car insurance company for the vehicle that struck you must pay your reasonable and related medical bills that arose from the crash. Your lost wages too will be paid by the car insurance company, up to $8000.
Second, you may be entitled to pain and suffering. But, before you can get these damages, it must be shown that you were not the cause of the accident. Keep in mind that even if you were not in a crosswalk when you got hit, you may still collect pain and suffering. But, if you suddenly ran into or darted into traffic and a car hit you, then you would likely be considered at-fault for getting hit by the car.
Sometimes these accidents are the result of the negligence of both the pedestrian and the motor vehicle operator. In that case, as long as you are not considered to be more than 50% no-fault for the accident, then you likely have a bodily injury claim worth pursuing.
