Comparative Negligence & Pedestrian Accidents in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania is a comparative negligence state. This means that if someone is considered 40% at fault for their accident and injuries, then they can recover no more than 60% of the compensation involved in the case. However, if they’re more than 50% at fault, they can’t recover anything at all.

Is it possible for a pedestrian to be at fault? In some cases, it is possible for a pedestrian to share blame with a motorist for the collision. This could be the case if a pedestrian was hit while walking against a stop signal, while trying to cut across an intersection diagonally, or if they were walking in the road even though a shoulder or sidewalk was available.

In most cases, however, pedestrians would have the clear right of way, which a car driver, motorcyclist, or other motorist would have violated in the event of an accident. In some cases, a municipality could be on the hook as well, such as in the case of dangerous road conditions. Whatever the complexity of the case, even if the motorist involved is uninsured or underinsured, our pedestrian accident lawyers in York are ready to help you get the full compensation that you need and deserve. 

File a Pedestrian Accident Claim Before the Statute of Limitations

Whether you’re dealing with fractures, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord damage, or even the loss of a loved one, your case can still expire if you don’t file a personal injury or wrongful death claim in time. In Pennsylvania, you have two years within which to start your pedestrian accident claim. It’s in your best interests to speak with an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer in York as soon as possible.
