Who is at Fault when a Pedestrian Runs into the Street and is Hit by a Car?
Motor vehicle drivers have a duty to obey all traffic laws and to exercise due care while driving, in order to avoid an accident. However, pedestrians have a corresponding duty to exercise ordinary care to avoid an injury. Drivers and pedestrians who encounter each other on the public streets are entitled to expect each other to perform their lawful duties and to obey all laws.
