Determining Liability for a Collision
Based on the facts we have for this collision, there are at least two parties involved and police could determine that the driver or the pedestrian were at fault for this horrible accident. They could also determine that both parties were partially responsible for what happened. There could also be some liability on the part of a government entity in some cases. There are many factors that are involved. Who had the right-of-way? What were the road conditions? Was it reasonably safe for the pedestrian to cross? Was the area well lit? Was the driver impaired, distracted, speeding, etc.? These are all things that police will consider when they determine liability for a collision.
