Pedestrian Accidents FAQs

Do pedestrians always have the right of way?

It’s a common myth that pedestrians always have the right of way. Pedestrians have the right of way while crossing controlled intersections and marked crosswalks. In any other circumstance, pedestrians must yield the right of way to vehicles.

Can I still earn compensation if I was injured walking out of a crosswalk or running across the street?

If you were injured doing something you shouldn’t have been doing, such as walking out of the crosswalk or running across a busy street, you will be considered partially at fault for the accident. When you are found to be partially at fault for the accident, you will receive compensation that is proportionate to the negligent driver’s share of the fault.

What if I was partially at fault for my pedestrian accident?

The amount of compensation you receive will be directly affected by the portion of fault attributed to you. If you are more than 50% responsible for the accident, you won’t be able to recover anything. If you are less than 50% responsible for the accident, you will receive a settlement proportionate to the negligent driver’s share of fault. For instance, if the other driver was found to be 72% responsible for the accident, you would receive 72% of your accident claim.
