Who Is Liable In An Auto-Pedestrian Accident?

Some auto-pedestrian accidents are the fault of the driver, while others are the fault of the pedestrian. Texas follows the rule of comparative negligence.  This means if you contributed to your own accident in some way, any potential award for damages may be lessened by the amount the court finds you were comparatively at fault. For example, if you were walking through a parking lot texting on your phone and failed to notice a car reversing, your potential award could be lessened by the assigned percentage of your own fault. As such, it is crucial to have an experienced Houston, TX auto-pedestrian accident lawyer on your side after an accident because you will need help to effectively combat any accusations that you share blame for causing the accident.
