It happened along a road you’ve walked a hundred times. You were heading home, to work or to school when it occurred. Stepping off the curb and into the crosswalk you could see the car coming and noticed something wrong. Next thing you remember, you were waking up in the emergency room, suffering from severe and excruciating injuries. Now you are left to deal with the terrible physical and financial damage, all the while wondering:
- Was it my fault that this happened?
- How will I pay for all these bills?
- Do I have any legal action?
- Should I call a lawyer?
