Pedestrian Accidents: What If I Was Not In a Crosswalk?

29.03.2019 in Pedestrian Accidents, Personal Injury

Most people know that if you’re walking across a street within a marked crosswalk, you have the right-of-way, and vehicles – including bicycles – must yield to you. If they don’t, they are at fault in an accident. Pedestrian accidents under those circumstances are likely compensable, meaning you can receive money to help pay for medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. But what if you’re hit by a car, motorcycle, or bike outside of a marked crosswalk? You may be wondering if you can still be compensated for your injuries.
