Pedestrians are especially vulnerable in such situations. They don’t have any protection and often end up having severe injuries.
Even though pedestrians can be at fault for causing accidents, they can still seek damages for their injuries because of their vulnerability on the road. Hit-and-run accidents can be quite tricky when it comes to seeking damages. But, if the police find the liable driver, the victim can file a lawsuit and seek compensation claims for their injuries.
