When a vehicle hits a person walking down the road, on the sidewalk or in a parking lot, the driver of the vehicle is almost always deemed to be negligent or at fault in the crash.

After the crash, the pedestrian might be out of work for an extended period of time and face extremely expensive medical bills.
