About Pedestrian Accidents
Your case is unique, and we won’t give you a one-size-fits-all solution. Still, there are some common themes among pedestrian accidents that may apply to your case. Most auto versus pedestrian accidents occur at a crosswalk in an intersection. If a pedestrian can prove that he or she was walking through a marked crosswalk while the appropriate signal, such as a walking signal, was lighted, then any injuries and damages are the fault of the driver.
We may be able to prove negligence of a vehicle driver even if you were jaywalking or partially at fault. Much depends on all the facts of your accident case. That is why it is important to call us as soon as possible so that we may begin to obtain all the evidence crucial to the resolution of your case.
California is a comparative negligence State. In essence, this means that negligence may be attributed in percentages between the defendant(s) and you. Thus, even though you may think you are not entitled to be compensated for your damages, we may be able to find ways to attribute partial or significant percentage of liability to the driver of a vehicle that struck you as a pedestrian. We use many ways to find possible liability, including hiring an accident reconstruction engineer, obtaining data recordings from vehicle(s) involved in accidents, witnesses, measurements, determining speed/distance/time variables in the accident, depositions and other methods.
Many pedestrian accidents happen when a driver making a left or right turn through an intersection fails to notice the person walking across. Pedestrians have the right-of-way in these situations, but some drivers fail to keep their eyes where they are going and may turn without looking to “clear” all aspects of the intersection prior to initiating their turn.
