Who is at Fault in a Pedestrian Accident?

Drivers are always quick to blame pedestrians for pedestrian accidents. They often exclaim things like “they jumped out in front of me” or “they stepped out of nowhere.” Without convincing evidence of fault, simple statements like these could be enough to defend themselves from liability and avoid paying you anything for your injuries.

Knafo Law Offices can help prove that you were not at fault for your pedestrian accident with clear evidence used well. We want to show that you are 0% liable for your accident, so you can demand 100% of damages from the driver who hit you.

Evidence that could be useful in your claim might be:

  • Eyewitness testimonies
  • Dashcam footage from the driver
  • Security camera footage from nearby retailers
  • Driver’s DMV record that shows a history of recklessness

Fault in a pedestrian accident can be split in Pennsylvania without robbing the pedestrian the option of suing for compensation. As long as you were less than 51% liable for your injuries, you can recover damages from the driver. This is important because the damages experienced by a pedestrian are likely to be far more than those experienced by the driver.

For example: You are hit by a driver who was texting, but you also jumped into the road from behind a large van without checking for oncoming traffic. You are both found 50% liable for the accident, so you can demand 50% of your damages from each other. The driver only suffers $1,000 in vehicle repair costs, so you would owe them $500. But you suffer $100,000 in medical bills and lost wages, so they would owe you $50,000.

How Can Pedestrians Stay Safe?

Contrary to popular belief, most pedestrian accidents do not occur at intersections. Instead, most happen in urban areas and stretches of road without crosswalks or pedestrian overpasses. Whenever a pedestrian needs to try to cross or enter the street without any sort of road markers or directions, they are put in danger of encountering a reckless, speeding, intoxicated, or texting driver.

To stay safe, pedestrians should try to only cross the street where there are dedicated crosswalks, especially those that stop traffic with signals. When crossing in front of a stopped car, making eye contact with the driver forces the driver to acknowledge the pedestrian, making them much less likely to forget about the pedestrian and move while they are crossing.
