Can a Pedestrian Be at Fault in a Car Pedestrian Accident?
Although uncommon, a pedestrian can be either partially or fully at fault for a car-pedestrian accident since pedestrians still have a responsibility to follow certain traffic laws put in place to keep them safe. Some situations where a pedestrian can be found at fault are:
- A pedestrian was crossing against the traffic signal
- A pedestrian was crossing the road outside a crosswalk
- A pedestrian was walking where pedestrian access is clearly not allowed
There are many factors that are considered when it comes to pedestrian accident liability, even if a pedestrian was not crossing the road in an appropriate spot. If you have been injured, contact our Troy pedestrian accident lawyer today to learn how we can help you.
