Establishing Driver Negligence | Comparative Fault
The driver may say that the pedestrian darted out into the street or otherwise made the collision unavoidable. The defense may try to argue that the pedestrian was distracted or otherwise should have seen the car coming. Under the doctrine of comparative negligence, compensation can be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to the victim.
Establishing Driver Negligence | Collecting Evidence
We work to put the responsibility on the person behind the wheel of a two-ton vehicle who should have been alert and cautious in a populated area. Robert Rush is a board-certified civil trial specialist with more than 25 years of experience representing the injured in motor vehicle crash claims. He invests the time and resources to reveal how the driver was negligent:
- Speeding in a downtown or residential zone
- Turning without yielding the right of way
- Pulling out or backing up without looking
- Running a stop sign or traffic light
- Texting or talking on a cellphone
- Impaired by alcohol
- Driving aggressively
