Can pedestrians sue drivers in a car accident lawsuit?
In short, yes. Pedestrians are lawful users of the road, and their right of access and safety should be respected by motorists and bicyclists alike. If a driver fails to recognize a pedestrian’s right of way and strikes him or her as a result, the injured pedestrian may be able to obtain financial compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. This is particularly important in pedestrian accidents because it is likely that the injuries sustained will be extensive and costly to treat due to the lack of protection for pedestrians.
