Any of these causes can be the basis of a pedestrian accident legal claim.Can a pedestrian sue if hit by a car? Expand
Yes, a pedestrian can sue if hit by a car if the driver is responsible for the accident. The standard to bring a claim depends on state law. In some states, there are minimum injury levels that apply. However, Colorado is an at-fault state. That means, whenever a driver causes an accident that hurts a pedestrian in Colorado, the victim may have a legal claim for damages. Whether a pedestrian can sue if hit by a car depends on the cause of the accident, the victim’s injuries and state law that applies to the claim.
Colorado has strong laws that protect pedestrian accident victims in Englewood. Drivers are expected to use reasonable care at all times on the road. They are expected to be aware of the road conditions and the traffic in the area. They must follow traffic laws at all times.
Proving a case means showing how the driver is at fault for the accident and that the victim has damages. Each case is different. You deserve a legal strategy that is unique to your case. Our attorneys for Englewood pedestrian accidents are prepared to work diligently to gather the evidence you need to make your claim successful.Colorado pedestrian accident laws Expand
The laws for Colorado pedestrian accidents are based on negligence. That just means that drivers may be legally liable when their driving mistakes cause an accident. Negligence is the lack of ordinary care. When a driver is unreasonably careless, and when that carelessness is the reason for an accident, there may be legal liability.
The accident victim has the legal burden of proof. They must have the evidence to prove that the driver is at fault for the accident. Our team of Englewood pedestrian accident attorneys can work to gather the evidence to prove the case.What is a typical settlement for a hit pedestrian? Expand
