Injured Pedestrians May Recover Full Tort Damages
Limited tort is a choice that you make before you know all of the facts. You might imagine what happens if you are in a fender bender. You may anticipate what will happen if you are in a minor rear end accident. It can be harder imagine what will happen if you are hit as a pedestrian. The effects of a pedestrian accident can be horrific. The pain can be life changing. The injuries can be life ending.
For that reason, pedestrian accidents are an exception to typical limited tort rules. Simply put, if you are hurt in a pedestrian accident then you may be entitled to compensation for your physical pain and your emotional suffering as well as your economic expenses such as your lost income and medical expenses.
