Pedestrian Accidents: Our Priority, Your Legal Protection 

Legal Liability in Pedestrian Accidents

In Spain, the Law on Traffic, Motor Vehicle Circulation, and Road Safety establishes that drivers have an obligation to drive with caution and respect traffic rules to avoid causing harm to others. In the case of a pedestrian accident, the driver can be held responsible if they have failed to exercise due care.

However, legal liability in a pedestrian accident can be shared if the pedestrian has also contributed to the accident. For example, if a pedestrian crosses the street without obeying traffic lights, their negligence may be taken into account when determining liability.

II. Rights of Pedestrian Accident Victims

Pedestrian accident victims have the right to receive compensation for the damages suffered. This compensation may include:

  • Medical and rehabilitation expenses
  • Loss of income due to temporary or permanent disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral expenses in case of death

The amount of compensation that victims are entitled to depends on the severity of the injuries, the duration of the disability, and other specific factors of the case.
