Pedestrians are at risk of catastrophic injury or death if they are struck by negligent motorists. They have no protection from injury even in low-speed collisions in parking lots or driveways, and they may be faced with the need for ongoing medical treatment, assistive devices, or in-home care to lead a relatively normal life. Recovering full compensation from the at-fault party can give a pedestrian accident victim the chance to get the immediate, ongoing, and lifelong care he or she needs.
