No one expects to be injured in a pedestrian accident. If you have been hit by a car and you are able, you should obtain the contact and insurance information of the at-fault motorist. You will need to prove that the motorist who hit you was at fault in order to claim compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. If you were hit by a hit-and-run driver, you may make a claim through your own uninsured motorist coverage. An experienced lawyer who knows Alabama personal injury law can guide you through the claims process and protect your rights to seek full compensation.
