Pedestrian-Involved Accidents in Valencia
When a driver notices a pedestrian or is in an area where pedestrians are likely to be, they are expected to exercise a standard duty of care to keep harm from coming to the person. By that same standard, pedestrians are supposed to utilize marked crosswalks and remain as vigilant of the traffic around them.
Even in cases where the pedestrian was not in a marked crosswalk, however, the driver might still be held accountable for the accident.
Any negligence on the part of the driver that caused the accident could make the driver responsible.
