Being the pedestrian in an accident with a vehicle—whether bicycle, motorcycle, or car—can be a deeply unsettling experience.

Understanding Liability in Pedestrian Accidents

As in any accident situation, the first step will be to determine the liability of those involved. Liability is calculated based on whether or not individual parties committed negligence—did they contribute to causing the accident through carelessness or inattention? A qualified accident attorney can help ensure the determination of liability is done fairly and in a reasonable time.

Other questions that may contribute to your case:

  • Did the driver stop after the accident?
  • Was it a hit and run?
  • Do you have reason to believe the driver with under the influence?
  • Did the pedestrian or the driver have the right of way?

Drivers must give right of way in all clearly marked crosswalks and at corners with stop signs or flashing red lights. Pedestrians must yield to vehicles when attempting to cross in other areas.
