Pedestrian Accidents: Whose Insurance Pays?
In accidents involving motor vehicles and pedestrians, the pedestrian can be seriously injured while the driver remains unscathed. Pedestrians are vulnerable, and these accidents can be fatal. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident caused by negligence, an experienced personal injury lawyer can answer your questions about insurance and compensation.
- California is an ‘at-fault’ or ‘tort state’
