How Do I Know if I Have a Pedestrian Accident Case?

Whether or not you have a pedestrian accident case will depend on three factors. First, you want to see whether or not you have liability facts. Liability facts allow you to hold the person who injured you responsible for your injuries. Usually in Texas that means a standard of care called negligence, which means that they fail to act with ordinary care and precaution and as a result you were injured. Second, you want to see whether or not you have sufficient damages that make it worth your time and hassle to go through with filing a claim for a personal injury. Damages include things like your medical bills from the injury, your lost wages, as well as your pain and suffering. Third, you want to see whether or not there is a source of recovery, which usually in Texas means some sort of insurance policy that will cover the negligent actions of the person who injured you. If you are unsure whether or not you have all of these elements, talk to a personal injury lawyer.

Am I Partially at Fault for My Pedestrian Accident?

Whether or not you are partially at fault in a pedestrian automobile accident will depend on specific facts of your case, the municipal laws, and traffic laws in your city, and the specific roadway where you were injured. Oftentimes, insurance companies will tell victims of personal injury that they are partially responsible for their own injury in an effort to avoid paying a total claim or avoid paying the claim entirely. If you have questions on whether or not you're at fault, you should talk to a personal injury lawyer about the specifics of your case.
