Question:

Is the driver always at fault?

Answer:

In Florida, just because you’re hit as a pedestrian doesn’t necessarily mean that the driver is always at fault. We hear about news stories all the time where children dart out into the street. If a driver can’t reasonably be expected to see that child, then that driver wouldn’t be at fault.Is The Driver Always At Fault?We do, however, always look to other areas. For example, if you have a child on a playground, where a teacher should be watching them, then it may be the fault of that teacher who didn’t provide the appropriate supervision. In every scenario, you need to contact an experienced lawyer who can fully investigate all avenues for every claim.
