I wasn’t in a crosswalk, can I still get financial compensation?
Depending on the state and local laws that apply to your accident, you might still be able to recover financially.
In some states that use a system of contributory negligence, you can recover even if you were partially at fault in causing your accident; however, it has to be less than 50%. There could also be additional avenues of compensation available to you. A Montlick attorney can walk you through your options during your free consultation.
