Pedestrian/bicyclists are often struck by motor vehicles because the car, bus, or truck driver is distracted and unaware of the pedestrian’s or bicyclist’s presence at the intersection, parking lot, or shoulder of the road. Insurance companies often deny responsibility for pedestrian / bicycle accidents and claim that it was the pedestrian / bicyclist who caused the accident. Because Indiana is a modified comparative state, if you are found to be 50% or more at fault, then you cannot be compensated for your injuries.
Naturally, the insurance company will investigate the accident with the goal of discovering evidence that will make you partially responsible for the accident. Again, if you are found to be 50% or more at fault, then you cannot recover for your damages. If necessary, Alex Mendoza Law will work closely with accident reconstructionists who can recreate the accident, so that you can win the compensation that you deserve.
