Who Is At Fault For A Pedestrian Accident In Maryland?


Seriously, have you ever wondered who was at fault when it came to a car hitting a pedestrian?
  Many of my clients have asked this question before.  Well, this insurance company for the driver will usually say it was the pedestrians fault.  So, please keep reading this Blog post if you or someone you know was recently hit by a car, so you know exactly how to handle this tragic event. 

Let me ask you, do you think it's possible for a pedestrian to be somewhat responsible for what took place while crossing the intersection?  Should the driver be held 100% responsible because he or she was distracted by looking at his or her smart phone?
