Many times pedestrians who were struck by a motor vehicle are given the blame by both the other party and his or her insurance company. In addition, police reports do not always tell the whole story. Even if you were not in a crosswalk and you were a pedestrian injured in an accident, you can still pursue compensation for your injuries. Fault is never a clear-cut answer, and we will help figure out the answer in your specific pedestrian accident case.

Finding Out Fault in a Pedestrian Accident Case — Redwood/Palo Alto
Under California law, fault is attributed to each party involved in an accident. This is done through a percentage. For example, if you were found to be 10 percent at fault, you could recover 90 percent of damages from the other negligent party. The same holds true if the reverse were assigned. If you were found to be 90 percent at fault, you could still recover 10 percent of damage from the other negligent party. With so much to be reviewed and analyzed, it goes to show just how critical it is that your attorney be experienced in advocating on your behalf.
Our team of attorneys works with accident reconstructionists and other experts who can help determine who was at fault and provide support for your case. We can look to see if the driver was speeding, texting, talking on his or her cellphone and engaged in other negligent behavior.
