We have extensive experience representing pedestrians who have been injured in:
- Hit and run accidents
- Crosswalks and intersections
- Accidents caused by speeding
- Accidents caused by drunk drivers
- Accidents caused by distracted drivers
Pedestrians and drivers alike are expected to follow traffic signs and laws. But drivers have an extra duty of care to drive carefully and to look out for pedestrians. In many pedestrian accidents, the driver is often at fault, and the cause is almost always negligence.
If your driver was distracted or failed to exercise caution while driving, then he or she may be held liable. We can investigate the accident to see whether negligence contributed to your injuries or whether a malfunctioning auto part was responsible. Regardless of the causes, we will fight to make sure that you are adequately compensated for your injuries.
Can a Pedestrian Be at Fault in a Car Pedestrian Accident?
Just because pedestrians have the right of way while crossing the street, doesn’t mean that they are never found responsible from a legal standpoint if an accident occurs. Some of the most common situations where a pedestrian can be found at fault are:
- A pedestrian was crossing against the traffic signal
- A pedestrian was crossing the road outside a crosswalk
- A pedestrian was walking where pedestrian access is clearly not allowed
Pedestrian accident liability can be a complex topic with many factors needing to be considered. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, contact The Pittman Firm, P.A today to learn how we can help you.
