Many people assume that it’s the driver’s fault if they hit a pedestrian. However, this isn’t necessarily true. Pedestrians can also be at fault if they act recklessly.
When Is a Pedestrian at Fault?
A pedestrian could be liable for an accident if their negligence caused it. Just like drivers, pedestrians have to be cautious and follow traffic laws. If a pedestrian acts recklessly, they can make it very difficult for drivers to avoid an accident. In these cases, the jury may find the pedestrian liable for the accident.
