What You Need to Know About the Laws of CA
You’ve been injured by a motor vehicle and are already dealing with the pain and suffering, medical visits, and drama of the situation. The last thing you want to do is study legal jargon about what has brought such devastation in your life. For the nuances that impact your case, you can have our team standing by your side and guiding you through, but it is important to know the big-picture laws that can impact your case.
The basic laws are under CA Vehicle Code 21950, which gives the right-of-way to pedestrians who are crossing the road within a marked or unmarked crosswalk. Motorists are required to yield, and if they don’t, should be held liable.
“Exercise Due Care”
Additionally, the law requires drivers to "exercise due care" as they approach a pedestrian in a crosswalk. This includes slowing down or any other action needed to avoid harming the pedestrian. These rules apply to marked and unmarked pedestrian crossings.
When a crosswalk law is violated, however, who is liable may change. This law does not allow pedestrians to enter a crosswalk without giving traffic enough time to slow down. According to CA V C § 21950(b), the pedestrian is responsible for his / her own safety as well.
