Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
When a pedestrian is injured, there can be more than one party with legal responsibility for the accident. Depending on the circumstances, potentially liable parties can include the driver of a vehicle that injured a pedestrian or the party responsible for maintaining the sidewalk, road, or parking lot where the accident occurred.
Both drivers on the road and pedestrians are required to follow the rules and exercise reasonable care. Generally, who is at fault is determined by the law of negligence in the pedestrian-vehicle accident. This standard is based on who has the duty of care owed by those involved. Many times, by evaluating the evidence at the time of the accident it may be obvious who was negligent. However, the court looks at numerous factors to the negligence elements, so it's crucial to follow proper steps.
