Who Pays for Pedestrian’s Medical Bills After A Car Accident?
If a pedestrian was injured after a car accident, the person responsible for paying the medical bills should be the at-fault driver. However, unless the pedestrian chose to pursue a claim to ensure that their rights are being met, then the at-fault driver would rarely voluntarily compensate the victim. Thus, it is crucial to start a personal injury claim after receiving medical treatment for your car accident injuries.
