Since it is the duty of the driver and the pedestrian to obey all traffic laws, the victim and his or her personal injury attorneys must prove in court that the another party was negligent. In most cases, the driver of the car, truck or other motor vehicle will be the defendant, since the pedestrian is most likely to suffer serious injuries. If a lawsuit has to be filed the burden of proving negligence rests with the victim who is called the plaintiff as opposed to the defendant who allegedly caused the injuries. Unlike the criminal law where guilt must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, the plaintiff in an auto accident civil case need only prove a preponderance. A preponderance means only after all the evidence is heard a tipping of the balance ever so slightly in favor of the plaintiff wins the case. See our vehicle FAQ for more answers to your questions.
