Determining Fault in Pedestrian Accidents

California is a pure comparative fault state. This means that you can obtain compensation even if you were primarily at fault for a pedestrian accident. As long as the driver of the car bears some responsibility, you can collect compensation for the percentage of fault that can be assigned to the driver.

Some people fail to consult an Oakland pedestrian accident attorney because they think the accident was their fault because they were jaywalking, jogging at night or their child darted out into the street. However, drivers have a duty to watch out for pedestrians. The victim’scomparative fault can reduce compensation, but it doesn’t automatically let the driver off the hook.

Our investigation may reveal driver negligence such as distracted driving, speeding, making an illegal turn or failure to stop at an intersection. Our pedestrian accident lawyers in Oakland have also sued municipalities for poor lighting and other hazards that contributed to a pedestrian accident.
