If it is established that another person is at fault for an accident, there are a few ways to receive compensation for injuries in a pedestrian accident.
The first is through workers' compensation, which can be used to cover medical expenses and lost wages after an injury. This type of compensation is available to both employees and their dependents. The second option is through civil litigation. If there is a civil case against someone who caused the accident, damages may be able to be collected, including lost wages and medical expenses. Last, there are also non-economic losses which include pain and loss of enjoyment of life.
In Bennington, Nebraska, pedestrian accidents are very common. They can happen at any time in the day or night and in any weather condition. The most common ways that pedestrian accidents occur in Bennington, Nebraska include:
Pedestrian vs Car: Car accidents involving pedestrians are frequently the result of negligent drivers. In this case, a car will hit a pedestrian and cause them to be injured by the impact. This can happen if they are in the wrong place at the wrong time or too close to an intersection when they are trying to cross it. More negligent actions which cause accidents are drivers disregarding the rights of others including speeding, making risky turns, and failing to slow down to safeguard children in school zones or when a school bus is present.
Pedestrian vs Bicycle: A bicyclist will hit another biker and either cause them to fall off their bicycle or cause them to get hurt by hitting them as they fall off their bicycle. This can happen if they are riding too fast and don't see someone who is walking toward them on the sidewalk when they're crossing an intersection.
Weather can also be a significant factor in pedestrian accidents in Bennington, Nebraska. Pedestrian accidents are more likely to occur when the weather is stormy or inclement and when it becomes hard to see clearly.
