North Carolina states that pedestrians have the right of way in all intersections, whether or not there is a crosswalk. Motor vehicles must always be careful in areas with heavy pedestrian traffic. When a pedestrian is struck by a car, the result is nearly always catastrophic, or even fatal, for the pedestrian. This is the case even if a car is moving at relatively slow speeds. If you were hit by a car while walking, or if someone you love was injured, you have many pressing concerns. Your health is of primary importance, but there are other problems as well. You may not be able to support yourself and your family while you are recovering from your injuries. In fact, you may never be able to do all of the same things you were able to do prior to your accident.
If someone else was at fault for your injuries, you have the right to demand compensation for your medical expenses, your lost income, and pain and suffering.
