Pedestrian Victim: Right to Compensation
Any pedestrian victim of a motor vehicle accident involving a motor vehicle has a right to compensation. However, this right does not apply if:
- The pedestrian accidentally caused the accident, for example, by suicidal behavior, suicide or attempted suicide.
- The victim has committed a fault such as crossing a highway of his own free will or any other case that could be considered the sole cause of this accident
An Accident Occurred, and a Pedestrian Was knocked Down: What to Do?
To Inform the Police: Even if the person victimized does not seem to present any injury. Police officers will draw up reports to determine who are the people involved, their degree of responsibility, and the damage to property. The bodily injury caused can also be noted by the emergency services (firefighters)
Making a Peaceful Report: This makes it easier to compensate the victims. The pedestrian must enter his or her contact information, the name of their civil liability insurance company and a description of the accident. The report and the report of the police must be sent to the insurance company by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt, within a maximum of five days after the accident.
