Compensation After a Crosswalk Accident or Other Collision

Whether you were injured while crossing the street, in a parking lot or while walking on the sidewalk, you have options. Even though you were not in a motor vehicle at the time of the accident, there may be compensation available to help you cover costs during your recovery.

First, you may be able to secure compensation through insurance coverage. Your own auto insurance policy (if you own a vehicle or are a dependant of someone in your home that does) will provide benefits in the event that you are struck by a vehicle whether the driver is insured or is an uninsured driver or in the event of a hit-and-run accident. Additionally, if the driver who hit you has insurance, his or her own policy may provide benefits if you don’t own a vehicle of your own.

Second, the government’s Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund may provide you with compensation. In situations where neither the injured victim nor the driver has insurance, the fund is available to provide accident benefits.

Finally, you can also bring a personal injury lawsuit against the driver and any other negligent parties. In this type of action, you can pursue damages for your pain and suffering, lost wages and other out-of-pocket expenses.
