Pedestrian accidents can be serious and even deadly events. Even in a rural state like Montana, people get struck by vehicles all too often.
Many of these incidents occur in bigger cities like Billings, Missoula, Great Falls, Bozeman, Helena, and Kalispell.
However, smaller towns and rural areas also see their fair share of pedestrian accidents.
For information about automobile accidents.
A person can simply be crossing the street or walking alongside a road when they get hit by a car, truck, or bus. Through no fault of their own, these individuals end up suffering serious injuries or even be killed.
Drivers are sometimes required to yield the right of way to people crossing the street. Sometimes these drivers don’t see the pedestrians until it is too late. It could be because they were texting while driving, operating the car under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or they simply weren’t paying attention to the road.
There might be insurance available from the driver’s car insurance or other insurance. And if the driver was working for a business or the government, there could be insurance available from those entities as well.
