A pedestrian accident occurs when a person walking on foot is struck by a car or injured as the result of a nearby car accident. Because pedestrians have absolutely no protection, they often suffer from serious or possibly life-threatening injuries that may require extensive hospitalization and ongoing medical care and rehabilitative treatment. In the event of an accident, it is not uncommon for a pedestrian to suffer from some type of brain damage, a back or spinal cord injury, paralysis, broken bones, disfigurement, internal injuries, and more.
Under North Carolina personal injury laws, victims of pedestrian accidents may have the right to sue the person responsible for the accident for damages. Not only do most victims suffer from intense physical pain and discomfort, but their injuries may make it impossible for them to continue working. When a person is no longer able to bring home an income due to their injuries, this, coupled with mounting medical expenses, may leave him or her feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and worried over whether or not they will have the financial resources they need. The law recognizes this injustice, and seeks to compensate victims by awarding damages for their pain and suffering, mental anguish, all medical bills relating to the injury, lost wages, loss of benefits, and decreased quality of life.
