What are my legal rights after a pedestrian accident in West Palm Beach?

If a driver's negligent or careless behavior contributed to your accident, you may have grounds to file a pedestrian accident lawsuit. However, even if the cause of your accident was clear-cut - the driver was driving drunk, sending a text message while driving, or speeding through a red light - insurance companies often will try to minimize the liability of the driver to keep your payments at a minimum. These cases can be difficult to resolve without the aid of a pedestrian accident lawyer in West Palm Beach who thoroughly understands Florida law. Attorney Glatthorn has decades of experience protecting the rights of South Florida residents injured in all types of car accidents.

What if I was partially at fault for my pedestrian accident?

In Florida, injured pedestrians have the legal right to bring a claim against a driver, even when ruled to be partially at fault in the accident. Florida is a pure comparative fault state. That means injured pedestrians can collect compensation when found to be partially at fault. For example, if you were walking against a signal at a crosswalk and were struck by a drunk driver, you still may be entitled to receive a percentage of compensation determined by your percentage of fault in the accident. These cases can be complicated. Insurance companies are quick to try to argue a victim was at fault to avoid paying full compensation. That's why it's important to contact an attorney before admitting any fault. Call David Glatthorn today at 800-990-9394.
