Semi-trucks are so much bigger and heavier than passenger cars that the occupant of smaller vehicles are especially vulnerable if an accident occurs. Victims often suffer permanent injuries that impact them for the rest of their lives. The financial burdens that accompany truck accident injuries can easily soar to the hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars. Fortunately, accident victims may be able to sue the truck driver, the insurer, the trucking company, and others to recover compensation. 
Bicycle & pedestrian accident lawyers help injured plaintiffs determine when a pedestrian can sue a driver in civil court. Lawyers work to estimate the allocation of fault. If they determine that you, the pedestrian, are less than 50 percent at fault, you may have a good case. You must be injured and have suffered compensable damages. In trials, juries are the finders of fact and also act to apportion responsibility for the accident. Before proceeding with a case, your lawyer assesses whether you were involved in situations such as jaywalking, walking while seriously impaired by alcohol or drugs, not using a sidewalk when one was readily available, walking along a highway where pedestrians are not allowed, soliciting for donations, crossing against a crosswalk signal, or hitchhiking.
The common way car accident victims receive compensation is by filing a claim after a car accident with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. To file a personal injury claim, you need to contact the other driver’s insurance company and inform them of the collision. Prior to contacting the other driver’s insurance company, it is advisable to hire a car accident injury lawyer.  Filing a claim with the other driver’s insurance company is known as a third-party claim. It is called a third-party claim because you, the victim, do not have a contractual relationship with the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
