They really can be much worse, so the value of your case is often based upon fault, shared fault or a balance of that, as well as how bad the injuries are.Pedestrian Accident DamagesThe damages in a pedestrian versus car accident case can be much more significant in New York state because they are not protected by any structure. They don’t have that protection of an airbag or a seat belt. The pedestrian really is defenseless against a car that’s always a couple thousand pounds of steel, plastic, and glass.
