Pedestrian Accident Liability in California
Proving that the defendant was at fault for the accident is a critical element of succeeding in your injury claim. We will investigate your accident and carefully analyze all evidence that we discover to build your case against the defendant. Defendants frequently blame other parties, including the pedestrian, in an effort to avoid liability.
California’s comparative fault laws are favorable to injured pedestrians. Even if it is determined that you were partially at fault for the accident, you may still be entitled to compensation for your injuries and damages. For example, if you were 10 percent at fault for the accident, and the driver was 90 percent at fault, you could recover 90 percent (100 percent minus your 10 percent portion of fault) of your injuries and damages from the defendant.

When appropriate, we also hire experts to help value your future losses, such as loss of earning capacity and future medical expenses.
