Were You Injured In A Car Accident While Crossing The Road?
The Sterling Firm can help! Crosswalk accidents are very common. As a pedestrian, you have the right to use the road just like a motor vehicle driver or bicycle rider. Suppose you are injured by these drivers’ negligent acts. In that situation, you have the right to recover compensation from the at-fault party. But actually obtaining that compensation is not as easy as it sounds.
Were You Using The Crosswalk But Still Got Hit?
Some jurisdictions have a “51 percent negligent” rule. This means that if the injured person is more than 51 percent responsible for the accident, then the court will not award him any compensation. For example, if you don’t use the crosswalk correctly and an accident occurs, then the court will approach the case differently than if you followed the law.
For this reason, before discussing your accident with police or any insurance claim agent, talk to a personal injury lawyer.
