Pedestrian Accident Law Firm (212)840-7000 - Free Consultation PEDESTRIAN MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS Pedestrian motor vehicle related accidents tend to cause the most serious injuries of all pedestrian related accidents. The majority of pedestrian motor vehicle accidents in New York City occur while the pedestrian is actually in the cross walk. Left hand turn and right hand turn cases generally place the pedestrian with the right of way in crossing where the vehicle is attempting to turn. Pedestrian accidents also occur in mid-block crossing, or while standing in the Street waiting for a cab. When involved in a pedestrian motor vehicle related accident, the pedestrian has two separate claims. The first is a No-Fault claim and the second is a Bodily Injury Liability Claim. NO-FAULT CLAIM: When a pedestrian is physically struck by a motor vehicle the pedestrian is afforded automatic coverage for No-Fault benefits. No-fault benefits provides coverage for basic economic losses, such as necessary medical treatment and a portion of lost earnings - up to 80% of your income or $2,000.00 per month, which ever is less. The No-Fault claim must be filed with a proper No-Fault form with the carrier for the vehicle involved within thirty (30) days of the accident. All medical bills must be submitted to the carrier within forty-five (45) days of given treatment for payment. Minimum coverage in New York State for No-Fault benefits is $50,000.00 per individual. BODILY INJURY LIABILITY CLAIM: The bodily injury claim is the liability claim asserted against the owner and operator of the motor vehicle involved in the accident. The bodily injury claim seeks to obtain compensation for all other economic damages not covered by No-Fault and compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses not covered and loss of earnings. The liability claim is conditioned upon proving fault and a serious injury as defined by the No-Fault law (also known as a threshold injury). New York State is a pure comparative fault state, in which the finding of fault can be to a matter of degree, all of which must add up to 100%. Fault can be determined based upon the standard of common law negligence or a statutory violation. Common Law negligence is the standard of reasonable care that a ordinarily prudent person in a similar position would have exercised under the conditions then and there existing. Both the pedestrian and the operator of the motor vehicle are held to the standard of reasonable care. The other basis for a finding of fault is based upon a statutory violation. A statutory violation can serve as stronger basis as there is an instruction given to the jury that if a violation of a statute has been found that was a cause of the accident, then the trier of fact must find negligence. SERIOUS INJURY REQUIREMENT: In order for a pedestrian to obtain compensation beyond No-fault benefits, the pedestrian in addition to proving fault, must also prove a serious injury as defined by the No-fault law. The serious injury requirement is commonly known as a "threshold injury". The term threshold injury comes from the fact that only one injury must meet any one of the recognized categories, then all the injuries are compensable. Article 51 of the Insurance Law provides that the pedestrian in a motor vehicle related accident must establish that the pedestrian has incurred a basic economic loss exceeding $50,000 or must establish that he/she has suffered serious injury as defined as follows: • Death • Dismemberment • Significant disfigurement • Fracture • Loss of a fetus • Permanent loss of use of a body organ, member, function or system • Permanent consequential limitation of a body organ or member • Significant limitation of use of a body function or system • Medically determined injury or impairment of a non-permanent nature which prevents the injured person from performing substantially all of the material acts which constitute such person's usual and customary daily activities for not less than 90 days during the 180 days immediately following the occurrence of the injury or impairment. The categories such as the two permanent injury categories and the significant limitation category is open to a great deal of specific case law interpretation. Before drawing any conclusions with respect to whether you have sustained a qualified injury, you must speak with an attorney fully familiar with this area of law. If you or someone you know has been injured in New York City as a pedestrian as a result of the negligence of another, please contact our office for a free no obligation consultation.

Pedestrian knockdown accidents: Is the driver always at fault?
 
01:51
When a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle, it's usually the driver of the vehicle who is at fault. Pedestrians generally have the right of way. But there are times when the pedestrian may be at fault, as California personal injury attorney Neil Shouse explains in this video. A pedestrian is most likely to be deemed at fault when the person is jaywalking, intoxicated, or distracted (such as walking across the street while typing on a smartphone). Even if the pedestrian is determined to be partially at fault, he or she can often still prevail in a lawsuit under California's comparative fault laws.

Could a Pedestrian Be at Fault for a Car Accident?
 
05:03
See full article at (https://injury-pedia.com/could-a-pedestrian-be-at-fault-for-a-car-accident/) There may be situations when a pedestrian could be to blame for a car accident. Some car accidents that involve pedestrians may result in no damages to the vehicle, but the pedestrian could have some fairly bad injuries. We all know that pedestrians are not as well protected in a car accident as a driver of a car is. However, this does not stop some people from assuming that pedestrians have a right of way. This isn’t always true, which is why we wanted to explain why some pedestrians could be at fault (Whether partially or wholly), even though they may think they had right of way. How to Determine who was at Fault Although there are some circumstances in which the driver of a vehicle is at fault for injuring a pedestrian, a driver may not always be to blame. Pedestrians are usually considered to be better at avoiding accidents with cars than drivers are, typically because pedestrians don’t tend to be on the road quite as often as cars are. However, there are situations when pedestrians are on the road such as when they decide to cross the road, and this is when accidents can occur. When we try to determine who was at fault for a car accident that involved a pedestrian, we try to look at the law of negligence as this can provide answers. Every single person, whether they are driving a car or they are a pedestrian is expected to use a reasonable level of care. This level of care applies to given sets of circumstances, in other words, they are expected to obey all of the traffic laws, no matter where they are. Let’s imagine that Andy does not act with any reasonable car and ends up hurting Brian. The law is likely to consider that Andy has been negligence irrespective of which person was driving, and which one was a pedestrian. This means that if Andy was a pedestrian and did not exercise reasonable care, and his failure caused a car accident, he will be at fault. Andy is likely to be liable for any damage to the car, and any car that Brian subsequently hit when he was swerving to avoid Andy. The Concept of Shared Fault There may be occasions when both a pedestrian and a driver are found to be at fault for the accident. For example, let’s imagine that Philip was jaywalking and Trevor’s car was heading towards him. Trevor was traveling at 50 miles per hour in a 25 mile per hour zone. When Trevor hits Philip and subsequently injures him both people will be found at fault as they were both behaving negligently. If a personal injury lawsuit was brought about as a result of the accident, the outcome will be different depending on the state in which it took place. Some parts of the United States use contributory negligence, whereas others use comparative negligence. Contributory Negligence Contributory negligence is only used by a few states, and under this system, if the defendant shows that the plaintiff’s negligence may a contribution to the accident (Regardless of how small the contribution is), the plaintiff will not be successful in their claim. This system can seem quite harsh, but the good news is that only Washington D.C., Maryland, Alabama, Virginia, and North Carolina use this rule. Comparative Negligence When a state follows a comparative negligence rule it basically divided fault between all of the parties. For example, Trevor may claim that Philip is at fault for jaywalking, however, when the comparative negligence rule is applied, Philip’s liability could be reduced. This could happen if it was found that Trevor was also at fault for the accident. There are two different types of comparative negligence, pure comparative negligence, and modified comparative negligence, and they can determine the outcome of the case. Let’s take a closer look at each: - Pure comparative negligence When pure comparative negligence is used, the liability is split between the defendant and plaintiff according to their percentage of fault. This means that if Philip was found to be 40% responsible for the accident when he was jaywalking, and Trevor was 60% for the accident as he was speeding, Philip’s damages would be affected. Philip would, therefore, receive 60% of the damages as he was only 40% to blame. - Modified comparative negligence When this type of negligence is used the liability will be split according to how much each person was to blame, but only to a degree. If the plaintiff (Trevor, in this case) is found to be at least 50% at fault, then they will not be awarded anything. If you were involved in a car accident where a pedestrian was injured, please speak to a personal injury lawyer as soon as you can.

Hit a Pedestrian? What you Should do
 
06:43
See full article at (https://injury-pedia.com/hit-a-pedestrian-what-you-should-do/) According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 60,000 pedestrians were involved and subsequently injured in a traffic accident in 2006. If you were to hit a pedestrian while your vehicle was traveling at more than 30 miles per hour they are likely to be seriously injured, if not killed. However, a car traveling at just 10 miles an hour can severely disable someone. It is vital that you know what to do if you hit a pedestrian. By speaking to the right people and staying clam you can reduce your liability. You may also want to consider learning a little more about the rules of fault, and how injuries, as well as damages, are compensated for. Immediately After an Accident If you have hit someone, chances are you’re going to feel very upset. Here is where you need to stay calm and think about what is going on around you. Firstly, try to get anyone who has sustained injuries to a safe place. Do not offer medical treatment, unless you need to administer CPR. Contact the police, call an ambulance and your insurance company. If you consumed alcohol before you got in your vehicle you should find a criminal defense attorney as soon as you can. When the police arrive, make sure you only tell the truth, do not be tempted to lie or to exaggerate events, simply explain how the accident took place When speaking to your insurance company, you should again make sure you tell them the truth. Please read our article ‘What you Should do at the Scene of a Car Accident’ for more information. You will also need to give the pedestrian your contact details, and vice versa. You should also exchange insurance information too. Try not to say too much to the pedestrian, their friends, or anyone who witnessed the accident as you could incriminate yourself. Do not admit fault as the injured party may tell their personal injury lawyer what you have said. You may be asked to speak to the injured party’s insurance company or their attorney. You should not do this as you could incriminate yourself. Your insurance company and your lawyer should be the only ones to communicate with their insurance company or attorney. Determining Who Is at Fault When someone is hit by a driver the question of blame will be passed around. Fault is usually determined by negligence, more specifically, who may have been negligent at the time of the accident. Anyone who does not act with a reasonable standard of care could be considered negligent. However, it is not uncommon for the pedestrian and the driver to be at fault. For example, a pedestrian may have crossed the road when they shouldn't have crossed it, and the driver may have been speeding. In a case such as this, both parties could be found negligent. In some parts of the United States, such as Virginia and Maryland, the ‘Pure contributory negligence rule’ is used. What this means is that when a pedestrian, for example, is found to have contributed to the accident, they will not receive any compensation from the driver’s insurance company. Some parts of the United States use a ‘Comparative fault rule’ which allows the pedestrian to receive compensation even if they were partly at fault. How to Avoid Hitting a Pedestrian One of the best ways for you to avoid hitting a pedestrian is to be aware of those around you. You should be aware of those who are walking, using a wheelchair, riding a scooter, and playing in the road. It’s vital that you pay a lot of attention to young children and senior citizens as they may not be aware of any vehicles on the road. What’s more is young children and senior citizens are less likely to pay any attention to traffic signs and signals. Remember, those who are not driving a vehicle are a lot more vulnerable than you are, and they are more likely to sustain serious injuries. Give pedestrians a lot of room and time, and you could avoid hitting them. Getting Help from a Lawyer If you are unsure as to who was to blame for the accident or your insurance policy seems quite complicated, please get help from a personal injury lawyer as soon as you can.

"Were You at Fault in That Automobile Accident?'' Share this article on Facebook Share this article on Twitter Share this article on Google+ Share this article on Linkedin Share this article on StumbleUpon Share this article on Delicious Share this article on Digg Share this article on Reddit Share this article on Pinterest Expert Author Sharon L Graeter Have you ever been in an automobile accident and thought that it wasn't your fault but your insurance company is now surcharging your policy and paid money to the other party? Most people really have very little understanding as to how the legal system works when it comes to classifying "fault" in an auto accident. Insurance companies have little to do with the determination of fault. It is based on the state in which you live and the comparative fault laws that the states' legal system adheres to. There are three basic comparative fault systems used in the United States, and they are very different from one another. A few states recognize the "Pure Contributory Negligence" rule where the injured party cannot recover any damages from the other party if it is even 1% at fault. Other states recognize "Pure Comparative Fault" which allows the injured party to recover even if 99 percent at fault. The recovery is reduced however by the damaged party's degree of fault. Most states recognize the "Modified Comparative Fault" rule. Some of these states have a 50 percent bar rule which says that an injured party cannot recover anything if 50 percent or more at fault, but if 49 percent or less at fault, it can recover, although its recovery is reduced by the degree of fault. The other states have a 51 percent bar rule which means an injured party cannot recover if it is 51 percent or more at fault. Insurance companies have to address the issue of a party's ability to recover financially based on the laws of the state in which the accident occurred. If you are traveling out of your home state, auto insurance contracts generally conform to the laws of the state you are traveling in fortunately. There are very few situations where you would be considered 100% not at fault. Generally, only if you were hit by another vehicle while parked or rear-ended while stopped, might you be considered 100% not at fault. When you're in an auto accident, there could definitely be a "He did this", "She did that" difference of opinion between the parties involved. The insurance claims adjusters will listen to the various accounts and compare that against the actual damage on the vehicles. They are very good at determining if an accident occurred the way described by looking at the actual damage. Here are some tips on what to do at the scene of the accident to get the greatest accuracy of what really happened: Locate a witness. This may not always be possible but an unrelated third party can be very helpful to identify what happened. Take photos. It's a very good idea to take photos of the damage done to both vehicles at the scene of the accident so that additional damage is not added after the fact. Many carriers have mobile apps that allow you to directly upload those photos to them. Don't admit fault. Most accidents are complex. It's in your best interest to let the adjusters look at all of the information before assigning fault. Get names and contact information for all passengers in the other vehicle. You would hate to have additional claimants try to make claims for injuries against you that were not even at the scene of the accident. None of us want to be involved in an accident. There are cars that have to be repaired and possibly injuries to recover from. Stay calm and collect a little bit of additional information to help your insurance company determine as accurately as possible what happened which will ultimately be in everyone's best interest.

How Can Insurance Companies Determine who is at Fault in a Vehicle Accident?
 
01:57
See full article at (https://injury-pedia.com/how-can-insurance-companies-determine-who-is-at-fault-in-a-vehicle-accident/) When an insurance company tries to work out who was at fault for a vehicle accident they first look at who acted carelessly. There is a set of rules that tell people how they should drive, and these rules provide insurance companies with guidelines helping them to understand how liability could be measured. In order to pass their driver’s license test, everyone needs to understand and abide by traffic laws. The complete rules of the road are found in every state’s vehicle code and they apply to cars, trucks, bicycles, motorcycles, and pedestrians. It’s occasionally clear when a traffic law has been violated and caused a car accident. For example, when a driver runs a stop sign and subsequently crashes into another vehicle. However, it is not always clear when a violation has taken place. For example, if two cars merged into the same lane of traffic and subsequently crashed it may not be obvious who was at fault. In an instance such as this, the law of negligence may be used. If a driver, pedestrian or a cyclist is found to have acted negligently they may be found partially at fault for the accident. In order to prove negligence there are 4 elements that have to be met: 1 – The driver of the vehicle is required by law to be reasonably careful when driving in that situation. This element is usually a given as drivers always have to use caution no matter what they are doing. 2 – The driver, cyclist or pedestrian was not acting in a careful manner 3 – The driver’s conduct caused injury or damage to another person.

Pedestrian Accident - Do I Have a Claim? Berger and Green
 
01:15
http://www.BergerandGreen.com. 1-800-999-2626. If I am hit by a car, as a pedestrian and injured, how do I know if I have a claim? If you are hit as a pedestrian by a vehicle while crossing the road or even not coming off the road the specific facts of your case will determine whether or not you have a claim. You are not required to cross directly in a crosswalk and having failed to do so does not mean you don't have a claim. It's important you contact a personal injury attorney who can investigate the specific facts of your case to determine if a claim can be made. For instance, if you are crossing mid-block and traffic was nowhere in site when you came off the curb and you had almost gotten to the other side of the road when a speeding vehicle hit you, you most certainly have a claim. If, on the other hand, you step right off the curb into traffic, well clearly you don't have a claim. That's why it's important before you talk to any insurance company or either your own or the defendant's insurance company to retain a personal injury attorney so they can investigate the specific facts of your case.

Who would you say is at fault in this accident?
 
06:06
Was heading South out of London to test out a new mic rig I was using, when I kinda saw (but kinda missed) this crash between a truck and a van. It seems the truck scraped the van with it's crane, then when they pulled over to talk, turning right made the crane swing out to the left, as the other guy was opening his door and it ripped the door almost off its hinges. Funny one this one; as I'm still not clear on who's at fault. I am attributing the blame thusly: a bit to the truck driver, for turning right when already close to a car he'd just hit; a bit to the van driver for opening the door instead of pulling over first, particularly when a truck that hit you is still next to you and has started moving; a bit to the truck driver's company for letting him leave the yard with his crane over-extended out like that, and with no-one buddying-up with him in the cab for his first day; and a bit to the truck/crane company for designing a crane that stows in such an unsafe way. and I'm sure r/roadcam can find a way to make it partly my fault too :) (jokes!) I was keeping it under wraps but one of the insurers started playing what I think was silly buggers, so I decided to upload it and let 'em sort it out.

Determining who is at fault for a t-bone accident is not always easy, as this California personal injury lawyer explains. Is it the person who crashes in head first, or the car that is broad-sided? In this video, we discuss five factors we look to in determining fault: who had the right of way, did one of the cars run a stop sign or red light, was one of the drivers speeding, was one of the drivers distracted, and was one of the drivers intoxicated (DUI)?

Importance of Police Report in Pedestrian Accidents | Indiana Lawyer Explains
 
02:56
https://davidholublaw.com #IndianaLawyer #FightingForTruth Hi, I'm Indiana personal injury attorney David Holub. Being a victim of a car crash can be very scary. Being a pedestrian who is hit by a car can be just as scary, if not more frightening. It can be an overwhelming experience. We're posting this video because we've had a number of situations where clients who have been hit as a pedestrian have not called the police immediately after being hit or injured. It's very important to call 911 and have the police contacted, either doing that yourself or having the driver who struck you, is important to do. It's important to do it even if you think you're unharmed at the moment. Many times, adrenaline rushes mask the serious nature of injury that can occur if you are struck by a vehicle as a pedestrian. Being thrown to the side of the road may be such where you get up and you're just thankful that you can stand, but it may result in a lot of injury that you're not immediately aware of. It's close to impossible to get a police report created after the fact if the police are not called to come to the scene. We suggest that you calmly ask the driver of the vehicle involved in the crash to contact the police and any EMT personnel that you may need to help you at the scene. If a driver has fled the scene, which is something that frequently happens in pedestrian crashes, even though the law requires everybody to stay at the scene of a potential injury incident. If the driver has fled, however, try to make a note, if you can, of the make and model of the vehicle, and if there is information otherwise--like how many people were in the vehicle, distinguishing features of the vehicle, bumper stickers, and those kinds of things. And you yourself should call 911 immediately and have them come to the scene. There may be skid marks, there may be other bits of information available at the scene that the police can document. Also, the police may be able to contact people in the neighborhood who were witnesses, or there may be video cameras that captured the incident. A police investigation is important to every crash, but it's important in pedestrian incidents as well. If statements are obtained, insurance information is obtained from witnesses and the other driver, these bits of information coupled with photos can help your attorney piece together what happened. A report from a police officer as well as photos you might take at the scene can all help in processing a claim for damages.

What happens if a pedestrian is at fault for an accident? | Stein Law
 
01:19
A driver is not responsible for the injuries of a pedestrian if the pedestrian caused the accident. In that scenario, the pedestrian would look to their health insurance to cover any medical treatment they would need. However, who is at fault in an accident between a pedestrian and a car is a legal conclusion that should be made by an attorney. We lawyers at the Law Office of Nick Stein are familiar with this area of law, and can determine who is actually at fault. Please don't assume that you were at fault and don’t delay in and calling our office to represent you. Even if the police report lists you, the pedestrian, at fault, our own investigation may lead us to conclude otherwise. Give us a call so we can get started. ____________________________________________________________________ Nick Stein Law New Albany Office 810 East Market Street New Albany, IN 47150 Phone: 812-948-6000 Louisville Office 745 West Main Street Suite #100 Louisville, KY 40202

Is a Police Report Required to Prove my Auto Accident Case?

I was involved in an auto accident, do I need to have a police report taken in order to prove my case? http://www.davidrickslaw.com/ David H. Ricks provides legal services in the following personal injury practice areas: Car, Truck, Motorcycle, Pedestrian, and Cyclist Accident Cases *Slip and Fall Accidents and Premises Liability Cases *Dog Bite and Animal Attack Cases *Medical Malpractice and Surgical Error Cases *Wrongful Death Cases 8600 Utica Ave., Suite 200 Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730 TELEPHONE: (909) 481-0100 Welcome, I am David Ricks. I am a personal injury trial lawyer in Rancho Cucamonga and the principal of the Inland Empire Law Group. Following a car collision, the people in that car collision may contact local law enforcement to have an officer arrive at the scene of the accident to investigate the accident and prepare a police report. Now, these police reports are very important and helpful in determining who is at fault for the collision. But in some instances, law enforcement will not arrive on the scene and no report is prepared or ever taken. The question is, do you need a police report to help prove your automobile collision case against the negligent party? And the answer is, no you don’t. It is helpful, especially if that report provides information that shows that the other party is responsible, but it is not a critical part at determining whether fault should be attributed to the other party. If you have a lawsuit or a claim as a result of a car collision, you do not necessarily need a police report in order to determine who is at fault for the accident. This is especially true if you have a rear end collision case or some other type of situation where it is fairly obvious or evident of who is responsible for the collision. If you come across a situation where you have been involved in a collision, and you can get a police report get it. If you can’t get a police report, get a personal injury attorney because he or she may be able to help you in obtaining justice for your injuries.
The Importance of Uninsured Motorist Coverage in Pedestrian
 
01:33
Video Transcription: If you’re a pedestrian and you have been hit by a car, I think one of the first things you worry about is “who’s going to pay for this claim that I have.” We always look to the driver who caused the accident first and determine whether or not they have bodily injury liability insurance. Obviously, they are at fault, they are responsible, so they should pay. But the reality is, a big percentage of Florida drivers don’t have this insurance on their policy and many of them don’t have insurance at all. Even if they do have insurance it may not be enough to pay the entire value of your claim. So, the next thing to do would then be to look at your own auto policy and find out if you have uninsured motorist insurance. If you have a claim that is worth $100,000 for instance, and the person who caused the accident has only a $10,000 liability policy, they’re $10,000 would be paid first and then we would look to your auto policy and hopefully you would have enough uninsured motorist to cover the $90,000 to make the full value of your claim. Uninsured Motorist coverage is an important part of anyone’s auto insurance policy. If you don’t have it, I urge you to get it immediately and if you do have it, I recommend you increase it if you can.  If you are involved in a pedestrian accident , contact us and find out how we can help.

Basic Automotive Insurance Coverage Explained
 
05:02
While everyone that drives in this country has to have some form of auto insurance by law, many do not understand the basics of their policies. While we don't all have to be auto insurance experts, it is important to at least comprehend the major bricks that build our auto insurance policies. Collision Coverage. This covers loss to your own auto caused by its collision with another vehicle or object. If you cause an accident, collision coverage will pay to repair your vehicle, and is normally the most expensive part of an auto insurance policy. You must choose a deductible, which is the amount you, the insured, must pay before the insurance company pays the remainder of each covered loss. The higher the deductible, the lower the premium costs. However, keep in mind that this is the amount you must pay (generally to the repair shop) if your vehicle is damaged, so deciding on your deductible, which directly affects your premium, can be a bit of a balancing act. Comprehensive Coverage. This covers damage to your vehicle caused by an event other than a collision or overturn. Examples include fire, theft, vandalism, and falling objects. This also comes with a deductible you select, which is how much you will pay before the insurance company pays the remainder. Liability. The official definition of liability from the InsWeb glossary is: "That portion of the insurance contract which pays and renders service on behalf of an insured for a covered loss arising out of the insured's responsibility to others imposed by law or assumed by contract." In simpler terms, if you are at fault in an accident, liability insurance will pay to cover injuries and property damage costs caused to others in the accident (including your legal defense costs, if applicable). Bodily injury coverage pays for things like medical costs and lost salary to others; while property damage pays for repairs to other people's property you damaged in the accident (other than your own car). Liability coverage (which is the state mandated part of your policy) is the basic building block of any auto policy, and minimum liability limits vary from state to state. Below are some common extra coverage items that are available to you: Medical Payments This pays you and your passengers for medical and funeral expenses incurred in an auto accident, regardless of fault. It will also cover injuries sustained by you while you're operating someone else's car (with their permission), in addition to injuries you or your family members incur when you are pedestrians. Personal Injury Protection This is the name usually given to no-fault benefits in states that have enacted mandatory or optional no-fault auto insurance laws. Personal Injury Protection (PIP) usually includes benefits for medical expenses, loss of income from work, essential services, accidental death, funeral expenses, and survivor benefits. No-Fault Insurance Many states have enacted auto accident compensation laws permitting auto accident victims to collect directly from their own insurance companies for medical and hospital expenses regardless of who was at fault in the accident. Although there are many legal variations of no-fault insurance, most states still allow people to sue the negligent party if the amount of damages exceeds a certain state-determined threshold. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorists Coverage: Uninsured Motorists Bodily Injury Uninsured Motorists Bodily Injury (UMBI) covers you for all sums (up to your policy limits) if an accident occurs with an uninsured or hit-and-run motorist who is determined to be legally at fault. Underinsured Motorists Bodily Injury Underinsured Motorist Bodily Injury covers you for all sums (up to your policy limits) if an accident occurs with a motorist who is underinsured (i.e., they carry bodily injury limits less than your UMBI limits and less than the amount of the injuries). Uninsured Motorists Property Damage Uninsured Motorist Property Damage (UMPD) Liability coverage pays for property damages caused by uninsured drivers. There are also other extra items, such as rental reimbursement and towing and labor charges in case of a breakdown. As mentioned above, please visit the Insweb Auto Insurance Glossary for further definitions. Remember to keep yourself adequately covered; while having the bare minimums required by each state may keep you in compliance with state laws, they may not be enough to protect your assets if you have a major incident. Insurance experts recommend that you review your insurance policy often and thoroughly.

Staged Car Accident - Right Turn Fraud
 
00:47
This video illustrates the popular "Right Turn" staged car accident. Staged traffic accidents are on the rise, endangering the lives and boosting the car insurance rates of innocent drivers who may unwittingly think they're at fault. Staged accidents are most common in "no-fault" states such as Florida and New York, where the insured stager can collect for bodily injury from their own car insurance company through their personal injury protection, or PIP, coverage.

Were you hit by a car while crossing an intersection? Watch this video about a partial fault pedestrian accident and learn how fault is determined in these accidents. Sometimes we get calls from pedestrians who are struck by cars where there’s a division of responsibility between the driver who hits them as well as the pedestrian themselves. For example, the call we got recently was from a pedestrian who stepped out into the crosswalk a little bit too early and a driver who entered the crosswalk a little too early. What will happen in that case is that there will be a division of liability. If you don’t settle the case with an experienced lawyer who can negotiate that with the insurance company, then it will be the jury who decides the division of responsibility.

Partial Fault Pedestrian Accident | Stillwater Personal Injury Attorney

Were you hit by a car while crossing an intersection? Watch this video about a partial fault pedestrian accident and learn how fault is determined. If you’re involved in a pedestrian car wreck, and you’re the pedestrian, and some of the fault is yours, the big question people always have for me is, “Can I still bring an action? Do I have any claim against the vehicle?” The answer is yes. As long as you’re 50% or less at fault, then you can make a claim and receive compensation from the person involved in the wreck with you. It’s a situation where you need to hire an attorney to do investigation and preserve evidence so we can really present the evidence we need to a jury or an insurance adjuster at some point in time. Another way I find really helpful is to show information, show pictures, show statements to a focus group, and have them help us determine what percent fault would be assigned to the pedestrian and what percent fault would be assigned to the vehicle.

Car Insurance In Ontario: Things You Should Know Shopping for Ontario Auto Insurance Quotes The rates charged by different Ontario car insurance companies to insure the same car and driver can vary by hundreds and even thousands of dollars, so it pays to shop around. The key is to find the insurance company that has the lowest rate available, but with so many Ontario car insurance companies, calling around to get comparative quotes is a lot of work and takes a lot of time.

InsuranceHotline.com is the best way for drivers in Ontario to find lower auto insurance rates by providing instant, free, real-time quotes. Save time and money by completing an insurance quote now and get connected with our large network of licensed insurance professionals. Ontario Car Insurance and the Law In Ontario, if you own an automobile that is operated on a public road or highway, you are required by law to purchase mandatory car insurance coverage(this also applies to new drivers in Ontario). Third-Party Liability coverage protects you if you are held legally responsible for bodily injury, death or damage to the property of other individuals as a result of driving a vehicle. Third-Party Liability provides protection by making payment up to policy limits and pays the cost of settling legal claims if a lawsuit is filed against you. The legal minimum for Third-Party Liability coverage in Ontario is $200,000, but most people purchase $1-$2 million. Every person injured in an automobile accident in Ontario is entitled to receive benefits from their insurance company, regardless of who caused the accident. Accident Benefits coverages are mandatory for all auto insurance policies in Ontario according to the Ontario Insurance Act. If you are eligible, you may qualify for several kinds of accident benefits: Income Replacement – compensates you for lost income if you become disabled Caregiver Benefit – pays certain childcare or other caregiver expenses if the stay at home parent or other caregiver is unable to care for a child or other persons in need Non-Earner Benefit – provides compensation if you are unable to carry on a normal life and do not qualify for Income Replacement or Caregiver Benefit Medical and Rehabilitation Benefits – pay for medical and rehabilitation expenses that are not covered by OHIP or another disability insurance plan Attendant Care Benefit – pays for someone to look after a seriously injured person Funeral Expenses & Death Benefits – paid if an insured person dies as a result of an accident Uninsured automobile coverage is the third mandatory insurance coverage in Ontario. Uninsured automobile insurance provides protection to you and your family if injured or killed by an uninsured driver or a hit and run driver. It also covers damage to your vehicle and contents caused by a driver who is been identified but is uninsured. Direct Compensation Property Damage is the final compulsory coverage of your car insurance policy. This protects you against damage to your car or its contents in the event of an accident when you are deemed not-at-fault. Coverage under this section will only apply if the accident took place in Ontario, there was at least one other vehicle involved in the accident, and at least one of the vehicles is insured by a company in Ontario. Direct Compensation Property Damage allows you to collect directly from your insurer for damages to your car and contents if someone else is responsible for the accident. What is “No-Fault” Car Insurance in Ontario? “No-fault” insurance is the current system used in Ontario. “No-fault” insurance means if you are injured or your car is damaged in an accident, you deal with your own insurance company, regardless of fault in the accident. No-fault car insurance speeds up the claims process since you go directly to your own insurance company to receive payment as opposed to waiting for the insurance companies to decide who was at-fault in order to receive payment. In every single car accident, someone is always established as the “at-fault” driver, whether they are partially at-fault or 100% at-fault, by their insurance company. Determining fault ensures proper coverages apply to an accident and makes sure the at-fault drivers premiums are adjusted properly. In Ontario, all insurance companies refer to “Fault Determination Rules” to determine fault for car accidents and property damage claims. These rules can be applied to almost every possible collision scenario regardless of road or weather conditions, visibility, and point of impact on the vehicle or the actions of pedestrians.

Figuring out who is at fault in an accident involves determining who was careless. State laws provide guidelines for determining liability. These rules apply to cars, motorcycles, trucks, bicycles and pedestrians. In some cases the driver may be liable even though they were obeying the law! The weather and traffic conditions can factor into determining who was at fault and how much of that they are at fault for. The Ruth law team has experience with all of the nuances of determining which party will be determined to be at fault for car accidents.

I am a personal injury trial lawyer in Rancho Cucamonga and the principal of the Inland Empire Law Group. I want to talk about insurance and how important insurance is for each and every person in the state of California. In particular I want to focus on automobile insurance. If you have a car and you are driving, and even if you are driving someone else’s car and there is no insurance coverage for that vehicle or for yourself, you are violating the law. You are not allowed to drive in the state of California unless you have insurance. Now, many people still do, and that is what I am going to talk about next. What happens if you do drive without insurance and you are involved in an accident and the accident is your fault and you caused harm to another person? You can be personally financially responsible for all the harm and losses you have caused as a result of that negligence? That could be thousands, or tens and thousands and even millions of dollars depending on the severity of the injury. If you are involved in an accident, and it is not your fault but you do not have liability insurance the law in the state of California limits you to the amount of damages that you can claim to just what is out of pocket. Which means that you just can’t make a claim for pain and suffering, for disfigurement and other things of that nature. You want to make sure that you have at least the minimum amount of insurance to protect you from breaking the law, from the claims of others and from prohibiting you from making a full claim for making a full recovery if you have been injured at the hands of another

Of course not. Sometimes pedestrians do stupid things just like anyone else, if someone is crossing in the wrong place or is not following other safety rules, then the pedestrian could be at fault. Sometimes drivers aren't paying attention, or the driver runs a red light or a stop sign, then the driver would be at fault.

If someone is jaywalking or violating the law by crossing the street. Can they still get compensated for their injuries? The answer here, you need to understand how the apportionment works first. So in any kind of accident there needs to be a determination of who's at fault and that fault can go from anywhere from 100% at fault down to 0% at fault and so the person who's jaywalking is likely to be held partially at fault. The question then becomes, the person that hit them: "Were they at fault for the accident at all?" "Were they driving the speed limit?" If they were speeding and texting on their phone, they're going to be held at a portion of the fault for the accident too. So in that instance if the person who is jaywalking, even if they were cited by the police for that, they may be 50% at fault for the accident because the other party was driving way too fast and was paying attention to their phone and they were held to be 50% at fault for the accident. In those cases, you still have a claim but you basically have 50% of a claim or whatever portion was attributed to your fault. So these kind of cases, they oftentimes come down to whiteness statements, to the police reports, to the evidence that we can gather. Sometimes they take in a little bit extra work to change that apportionment because even though the insurance companies and the police may think one party's at fault, if we do some extra investigation, some extra work, we can oftentimes kind of change the balance there and say, "Okay, now we think the driver was 75% at fault."

Uber Car Accident Settlement (Back Pain and Injury)
 
18:12
See how an Uber driver got a $260,000 settlement for a back injury. This is the only video on Youtube that I've seen that discusses the actual amount for an Uber accident settlement. The crash happened in Miami, Florida. This was a left hand turn T-bone car accident. The Uber driver had a fracture of the lamina of his T3 vertebra. The T3 lamina is located above his lower back. The Uber driver did not have surgery. Learn why he wasn't entitled to PIP insurance with James River Insurance Company. You'll see why the majority of the settlement was for his pain and suffering. I explain how I got Molina Medicaid to pay his $99,000 hospital bill. (They refused to pay it at first.) CNA (American Insurance Company of Reading, Pennsylvania) insured the at fault driver. CNA paid the $260K Settlement. We settled the case approximately 9 months after the accident. I discuss Uber insurance coverage, Uber uninsured motorist insurance and more. This is a big personal injury settlement for not having surgery. As a reference, in 15 of my 16 biggest injury settlements, my client had surgery. I was the Uber driver's attorney. My office is in Coral Gables, Miami-Dade County, Florida.

Pedestrian Accidents and Injuries - Pedestrian Accident Attorney
 
01:01
Pedestrian Accidents and Injuries: A pedestrian has a duty to use reasonable care just as a motorist does. If a car and pedestrian come in contact with each other and the pedestrian is hurt, the fault for the impact must be determined by percentages of fault attributable to each party. This is done through negotiations between your lawyer and the insurance adjuster for the driver or if an agreement can't be reached, the case would go to a full jury trial. If you are a pedestrian injured in Florida by an impact with a car, go to robertgluck.com to learn what your rights are.

Car Accidents and How to Prove who is at Fault
 
04:43
See full article at (https://injury-pedia.com/car-accidents-prove-fault/) If you have been injured in a car accident you will need to establish who is at fault, in other words, who was negligent. Many car accidents involve cyclists, drivers, or pedestrians who were obviously at fault, but you may not always be aware what laws were broken at the time of the accident. Here is where you need to make sure you know who was to blame and what they did wrong. You will need to tell an insurance company that the pedestrian, for example, was at fault, and you have some evidence to support this. How to Prove who was at Fault There are a number of different areas that you may be able to get your evidence from, these areas are police reports, and state traffic laws. Let’s take a closer look at these areas: - Police Reports If the police attended the scene of the accident it is very likely that they will have written an accident report. This is where you may find vital evidence that could help your claim. Contact your local enforcement agency and ask for a copy of the written report. Reports may contain a police officer’s opinion on the accident and give details of any traffic law violation that took place. The report may also mention if a citation was issued, or if there was negligent behavior. No matter how many details are included in the report if it shows a violation took place or that the other person was driving carelessly you may be successful in your claim. - State Traffic Laws If you can get a copy of your state’s vehicle code you may be able to argue that another driver was negligent/at fault. Also known as ‘The rules of the road’, there are usually simplified versions of the vehicle available at the DMV. However, if you would like to read a copy of the complete code you should be able to find it at your local library. If you find it, look for references to the cause of the accident, such as ‘Right of way’ or ‘Speed limits’, rather than going through the whole document. If you manage to find a rule that you think may be relevant please ensure you make an exact copy of the wording, and the statute number so that you can accurately use it during the claim process. No Doubt Liability Specific types of accidents have what is known as a no doubt liability. This means that the other driver is at fault up to 99% of the time. In cases such as these their insurance company is very unlikely to argue with you about it as it’s obvious who is at fault. Accidents that fall into this category are: - When Someone Hits you from Behind If you had a rear end collision that involved someone hitting you from behind it is more than likely to be the other drivers’ fault. This is irrespective of why you decided to stop your car. The law of the road says that all drivers should be able to stop their car safely if traffic ahead of it has stopped. If it turns out that the driver was not able to stop safely it’s likely that they weren’t driving safely in the first place. If you had to stop quickly and damaged the front of your car, and a driver went into your car’s rear end, it is often clear who struck who. The driver who collided into the back of your car may be able to claim against the driver that caused you to make a quick stop. They may also be eligible to claim against a car that pushed them into you, but this does not mean that they are not liable for the damage to your vehicle, or any injuries you sustained. You should be aware that even if someone has gone into the back of your car that you may be found negligent if your tail lights or brake lights were not working. In this case your compensation is likely to be reduced as you were partly responsible for the accident. Please read our article on comparative negligence for more information. - Turning Left A car that has made a left turn is usually responsible for the collision they were involved in, especially if they collided with a car that was driving in the other direction. However, there are some exceptions to this rule, but they can take place if the car that was driving in the other direction was traveling faster than the speed limit, if they ignored a red light, or your car made a left turn when it was safe, but it was stopped or made to slow down unexpectedly. This last exception is quite hard to use as a car should only ever make a left turn if it was safe to do so. If you have been involved in a car accident and you think the other driver was at fault please speak to a lawyer as soon as you can.

Can I still sue if I was partially at fault for accident?
 
01:05
http://www.terrybryant.com/auto-accident/car-crash-faq.php In this video Houston attorney Gregg Anderson of the law offices of Terry Bryant answers the question: Can I still sue if I was partially at fault for the accident? Absolutely, Texas is what's called a comparative fault state, which means that the fault of the different parties involved in a wreck are compared with each other. If a car hits a pedestrian in a roadway and the case is tried, a jury would be asked to assess fault based on a percentage basis both of the driver of the car and the pedestrian. So if th driver of the car was determined to be 80% at fault and the pedestrian was determined to be 20% at fault, then the pedestrian's award of money would be reduced by 20%.

Accident Benefits Part 1: Injuries
 
01:19
Every Ontario auto insurance policy includes coverage for medical rehabilitation and attendant care regardless of whether you are determined to be at fault or not at fault. If you are injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident as a driver, passenger, pedestrian or cyclist you are eligible for these benefits. For a minor injury, your coverage is often enough but what if your injury requires extensive physiotherapy or you need to hire someone for in-home care? What if the injury causes you to change jobs and you require additional training? Do you have coverage through your employer? These are just some of the questions you need to ask yourself when determining if your current insurance limits are enough.
