Pedestrian Accidents In Concord, Pleasant Hill And Walnut Creek
Regardless of whether you were jaywalking, you may be able to collect compensation for your injuries caused by a reckless or negligent motorist. Pedestrians who were partly at fault for the accident are often able to collect compensation under California’s comparative negligence law.
Under comparative fault, you will be able to pursue compensation equal to the driver’s level of fault. For example, if you were 20 percent at fault for crossing the street outside of a crosswalk and the driver was found to be 80 percent at fault for the crash, you may be able to recover up to 80 percent of your damages.
For more than 40 years, David G. Smith has helped injured clients seek maximum compensation. We can help you secure medical expenses, lost wages and damages for pain and suffering after a pedestrian accident leaves you with serious injuries. We also help clients who have lost a loved one in a fatal pedestrian accident pursue justice through a wrongful death claim.
