Who Is Liable for a Pedestrian Accident?

Bothell Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Washington is a fault insurance state. This means that drivers are financially responsible for any damages that occur as a result of accidents that they cause. If you are injured in a pedestrian accident caused by a negligent motorist, you have the right to pursue an insurance claim or lawsuit against him or her.

Drivers have a duty to follow traffic laws and drive safely. If a driver fails to uphold this duty and injures you, he or she is liable for your damages. Below are common examples of negligent driving behaviors:

  • Speeding
  • Running red lights or stop signs
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Making unsafe turns
  • Driving while drunk or high
  • Driving while distracted
  • Fatigued driving

In addition to motorists, other parties like product manufacturers, property owners, and even government agencies could be liable for your crash. The attorney at Colburn Law can launch a full investigation into your accident to determine the cause and name the appropriate at-fault parties. 

What to Do After a Pedestrian Accident in Bothell, WA

In the moments after a pedestrian accident, it is important to remain calm and seek help as soon as possible. Call 911 to report the accident to law enforcement. The responding officers will then create a police report; this document can help you establish important facts about your case.

Next, seek medical attention as soon as you can, even if you do not feel like you are injured. Symptoms of some injuries may not appear for a few hours following the collision, so it is important to take care of any damage quickly. Save all records related to your treatment.

If you are able, collect evidence at the scene of the accident. Take as many photographs and videos as possible and speak to any witnesses who saw the collision occur. Briefly exchange your information with the at-fault driver.

Finally, you should speak to a lawyer as soon as possible after your collision. Your attorney can evaluate your case and help you understand what to do next.
