He is looking for an attorney and we were reading up on the issue. Let's just say that he was legal to cross the street, but did so on his skate board. He was then struck by a car. The car is definitely at fault, but my question is, does the fact that he was riding a skateboard change the % of fault at all in California?
Pedestrian accidents pose a significant risk for personal injury. However, pedestrians injured by vehicles may be able to recover damages.
Fault, in personal injury cases, determines liability for an accident. Someone who is found at fault may be required to compensate the victim through damages.
