Whenever we hear of a vehicle striking a pedestrian, it is pretty much assumed that the driver of the vehicle is at fault and he is going to be held liable for a lot of damages. After all, the pedestrian did not have much of a chance against the sheer size difference involved, and what could they have done so wrong that they are no longer the victim, but the defendant? Haven't we always heard that the pedestrian has the right of way? From a legal standpoint, this isn't always the case and in certain circumstances, the pedestrian could be wholly or partially to blame!
When involved in pedestrian accidents in Kentucky, a pedestrian is usually unable to work and will suffer financial stresses. They may also suffer from pain that keeps them from doing day to day things. This is why it is important for a pedestrian to know what steps they should take to get back some of what they have lost.
