Comparative Negligence in Pedestrian Accidents
Even if the accident was caused by your own negligence, you may be protected under the California Comparative Negligence Law. Under this law, even if you (the pedestrian) are at fault or partially at fault in the accident, you may still be able to recover damages for medical expenses and/or pain and suffering. This law allows the driver and the pedestrian to split responsibility for causing the accident. Unfortunately, there are no guarantees on whether or not you would be compensated under this law, as a judge or jury determines the results on a case-to-case basis. During your court hearing, the judge would base his or her decision by determining what percentage each party is at fault based on the facts of the accident. For example, if you are trying to recover $150,000 in damages and the judge rules that you are 50 percent at fault, you would still recover $75,000.
