FAQ

If a pedestrian caused an accident, the pedestrian may be held liable for any damages or injuries that resulted from the accident. The specific legal consequences for a pedestrian who causes an accident will depend on the laws of the state where the accident occurred and the specific circumstances of the case.

In some states, pedestrians have the right of way and drivers are required to yield to pedestrians. In these states, a pedestrian who causes an accident by failing to follow traffic laws or otherwise behaving negligently may be held legally responsible for any damages or injuries that result.

In other states, pedestrians may be held partially or fully responsible for an accident if they contribute to the cause of the accident by behaving negligently or recklessly. For example, if a pedestrian darts out into the street without looking and is hit by a car, the pedestrian may be found at least partially at fault for the accident.

It’s worth noting that even if a pedestrian is found to be at fault for causing an accident, the pedestrian may still be entitled to seek compensation for any injuries sustained in the accident, depending on the laws of the state and the specific circumstances of the case.

 

The length of time it takes to settle a pedestrian accident can vary significantly depending on the specific circumstances of the case. Some pedestrian accident cases may be resolved relatively quickly, while others can take months or even years to resolve.

Factors that can affect the length of time it takes to settle a pedestrian accident include:

  • The severity of the injuries sustained by the pedestrian
  • The complexity of the case (e.g. whether there are multiple parties involved or disputed issues of liability)
  • The willingness of the parties to cooperate and reach a settlement
  • The availability of insurance coverage
  • The workload of the courts

In general, the quicker both parties are able to come to an agreement, the faster the case will be resolved. However, if there are disputes that need to be resolved or if the parties are unable to agree on a settlement, the process can take longer.
