Question:

Can I receive compensation if I’m partially at fault for a pedestrian accident?

Answer:

At Fault for a Pedestrian Accident If you’ve been a pedestrian and have been involved in a crash in the state of Utah, there’s a chance that you’re going to get blamed for part of that. If you were at fault, you have a claim against the driver of the vehicle, as long as you were less than 50% at fault. In the state of Utah, we use a comparative fault system, and if you were at fault, you need to accept that portion of fault and not be compensated for that. It becomes a tricky analysis at times, and it’s very fact-specific to each case.
