Understanding Comparative Negligence
The concept that pedestrians always have the right of way is so prevalent that many people assume the driver is automatically at fault if an accident involving a pedestrian occurs. However, California is a comparative negligence state meaning that both the pedestrian and the operator of the vehicle can be held partially or completely responsible for the accident if they are proven to have acted without caution and reason. However, even if you are shown to be partially at fault for the accident, you are still eligible to receive some compensation. A Palm Springs pedestrian accident attorney can help you navigate the very subjective comparative negligence laws of California.
Common Causes of Accidents
Factors that increase the likelihood of car accidents are:
- Pedestrians failing to cross the street at an intersection
- When it is dark outside
- In congested cities
- High levels of alcohol
- Youth or elderly people
- Cell phone usage
