California law allows the same compensation one would get in a car accident case as for a pedestrian accident case.  The costs of a pedestrian accident can be huge to the injured person.  A settlement can help a victim cover medical bills, lost income, lost benefits, lost future earning power, and rehabilitation costs. In addition, the settlement is meant to compensate for some of the pain and suffering the crosswalk or pedestrian accident has caused, and to help protect your legal interests in a car accident.
