What is a Negligent Pedestrian?

Pedestrians in Decatur have substantial protection when they’re near the roads, with motor vehicles being obligated to yield to them. 

However, pedestrians must also obey traffic signal control devices and take caution when crossing the street. 

If a pedestrian is negligent and causes an auto accident, for example by walking along roadways without a crosswalk or by disregarding traffic signals, they may be responsible for any damages that result from the crash. 

Drivers who are involved in such an accident should contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible, as these cases can be difficult to prove due to the pedestrian often being seen as defaulting responsible party. 

Henningsen Injury Attorneys P.C. can help you collect evidence and fight for the compensation you deserve after a negligent pedestrian accident. 

Decatur Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Collect Compensation After a Decatur Pedestrian Accident

Even if you feel as though your own behavior contributed to a pedestrian accident in Decatur, Georgia, that doesn’t necessarily mean you cannot collect compensation. 

According to O.C.G.A. §51-12-33, victims are still eligible for financial reimbursement even if they bear some of the blame – as long as their culpability is less than 50%. That being said, should you receive a settlement, the payment amount would be reduced based on the percentage of responsibility. For example, if you are found to be 30% liable for the accident, you will receive 70% of the original compensation amount.
