Jay Walking and Denying Liability

A new client recently described their situation to us like this…

I was crossing the street and got hit by a car. The police report says that I was jaywalking so now the other insurance company is ‘denying liability’. What does this mean?

When an insurance company says they’re “denying liability” that means that they believe you were more than 50% at fault for the accident. This does not mean that you will not receive compensation for your injuries. When this happens, we usually need to file a Connecticut Auto Accident lawsuit.

The Connecticut personal injury lawyers with Carter Mario Law Firm understand just how difficult getting back on your feet following a car accident that leaves you injured can be. That is why the firm would suggest that a person who has been hurt at no fault of their own explore their legal options by discussing their case with a qualified attorney immediately.
