What happens if a pedestrian caused an accident?
Pedestrian accidents are most often caused by the negligence and recklessness of the person operating the motor vehicle or bicycle. However, in some cases, the pedestrian may be at fault. Jaywalking, or crossing the street illegally, or without a crosswalk, can cause a pedestrian accident. If the pedestrian caused the accident, then you are not at-fault or liable for the accident in any way. There is a fine line between liability in pedestrian accidents, and while it may seem like the pedestrian is the sole reason for the accident, they may find you responsible for the collision. You may consider legal counsel after suffering a pedestrian accident.
