Determining pedestrian accident injury liability can be challenging. Let us handle the details, so you can focus on your recovery.
My clients have asked me if I would I say a driver is always at fault when hitting a pedestrian. My answer, as a personal injury lawyer for 45 years, is yes. Unless you dropped from the heavens in front of their car, they could have done something to avoid hitting you. There’s always something to take care of. There are brakes they could have hit. They could have swerved to the right or left. Maybe they were driving too quickly. There’s something always wrong. They’re not always paying 100% attention while driving their cars.
I think when you’re hit by a car, that driver is always responsible. They may not be 100% responsible, but they’re enough responsible that you can get money for the injuries that you sustained.
