In Massachusetts, most car-pedestrian cases settle.
Likelihood of Car-Pedestrian Accident Settlements
Depending upon the facts of the case, if the automobile driver was inattentive or was negligent in some way, the insurance company will ultimately pay for the settlement and the damages that result.
Likelihood of Car-Pedestrian Accident Trials
However, if the auto insurance company or the driver claims that the pedestrian ran out into the middle of the street, and it was the pedestrian who was not attentive, then it is more likely there will be a trial.
