How Will My Attorney Prove My Case?
Based on what caused the accident, our attorneys will use different tactics to prove liability. We understand the laws governing both motorists and pedestrians and will craft an argument that is tailored to the unique circumstances of your case.
Generally, your lawyer will look for the following evidence:
- Footage of the accident, from dashcam recordings to traffic light cameras
- A copy of the accident report
- The driver’s cell phone records
- Photos of the accident scene
- Photos of your injuries
- Eyewitness testimony
- Expert witness opinions
Can I Still Recover If I Was Jaywalking?
If you were jaywalking when you were hit, you might wonder whether you can still successfully sue the driver. Fortunately, there are situations in which you can still recover even if you contributed to the accident. This is due to the law of comparative negligence, which entitles you to pursue damages even if you contributed to your accident – your damages will simply be reduced in proportion to your percentage of fault. For example, if you were 25% responsible for your accident and the liable party was 75% responsible, the liable party may be ordered to pay up to 75% of your damages.
If you were jaywalking when you were hit, consult a personal injury attorney to discuss your options and whether pursuing damages would be a worthwhile endeavor.
