In densely populated cities throughout California, all pedestrians are given the right of way. They must be cautious, however, when walking on the sidewalk or alongside high-traffic areas. There is a high chance of a pedestrian getting struck by a vehicle or involved in an accident. Most often, these accidents are caused by another driver’s negligence.
We have over 50 years of combined experience and a reputation as one of the most widely respected personal injury firms serving Ventura. Call us today to request a free consultation.
Proving Fault in a Pedestrian-Vehicle Accident
If a vehicle struck a pedestrian who is walking on the sidewalk or crossing the street, then it is highly likely that the driver was negligent or driving carelessly. Traffic lights and signs were made specifically to reduce the number of accidents and keep people safe. While reviewing your case, our Ventura personal injury lawyers strive to determine how the driver was negligent and if he or she could have taken the steps to prevent the incident from happening.
To prove negligence, we must establish the following:
- The driver understood that he or she should be practicing safe driving measures
- The driver failed to drive safely and went against the duty to prevent an accident
- The driver’s action caused an accident and led to another person’s injuries
- Someone was injured as a result of the accident
There may be more than one party at fault for the incident, as there may be more than one driver. Or, factors beyond anyone’s control, such as defects or obstacles on the road, or defective vehicle parts that caused the accident. Whatever the case may be, trust that Haffner Law Group can help you find the necessary compensation to aid in your recovery.
