Who is At Fault in a Pedestrian Accident?
Making the determination of who is legally liable when a pedestrian is hit by a vehicle requires a thorough investigation of the accident. The primary factor is what actions the driver and pedestrian were taking at the time that the collision took place. Here are some of the questions that will need to be asked of the driver:
Did the driver have a green light?
Was the driver legally permitted to drive where they were?
Was the driver’s speed safe for the circumstances on the roadway?
Some questions that will need to be asked of the pedestrian are:
Was the pedestrian where they were legally allowed to be?
Was the pedestrian crossing the street legally?
If you, as a pedestrian, were injured by a motor vehicle in Boise, Idaho, proving fault will be essential in obtaining the compensation you deserve. Idaho has adopted the Comparative Negligence Doctrine. Based on this doctrine, a plaintiff’s recovery is reduced in proportion to his or her degree of fault. If you were partially at fault, the compensation you receive will be reduced proportionately to your degree of responsibility. It is important to work with a Boise attorney who can build a solid case that does not unnecessarily place you at fault.
