Dear melissaats:
Since you didn't have any specific questions, let me address some possibilities. You have to decide whether to fight the ticket or not. If you don't understand the ticket, you may want to consult with a local attorney who can tell you what the charges are and the ramifications of those charges. You will probably also be sued by the pedestrian, especially if the police report shows you to be at fault. If you are sued or even just contacted by the pedestrian or the pedestrian's representative, you should IMMEDIATELY notify your car insurance company if you have liability coverage. (I presume your liability policy has a provision in it for that insurer to indemnify and defend you in a suit or claim?; read your policy if in doubt.) If you don't have liability coverage, you should immediately talk to a local attorney who can defend you. Hope this helps. Best of luck.
