In many instances, the driver will attempt to claim that the pedestrian was at fault in the accident.
Common claims include that the pedestrian crossed the street recklessly, or in an area that was not a designated crossway.
However, even in this event, the driver may have been partially at fault through inattention, driving while impaired or driving unsafely and illegally such as speeding.
In some cases, California’s comparative negligence laws apply, and blame is apportioned to each party. Therefore even if the pedestrian was partially at fault, the driver’s insurance will still be responsible for fair compensation.
It takes an experienced lawyer to untangle the complications of state law and determine all the best options for your compensation.
We have settled many cases with shared fault and have the resources you need including medical specialists and accident investigators.
If you were injured by a vehicle as you were walking or jogging, you may be entitled to damages for:
