North Carolina Pedestrian Accident Laws

If it can be demonstrated that the pedestrian was contributorily negligent in causing the accident, North Carolina law can bar them from any recovery. Pedestrians are charged with the duty to “see what ought to be seen,” meaning that they are expected to look for vehicles before entering or crossing a roadway. This means that if an automobile insurance company can prove any degree of fault on the part of the injured pedestrian, they will not have to cover damages.

To demonstrate the fault of a driver while showing the lack of pedestrian fault, it is important to show that:

  • The motor vehicle operator was negligent, meaning they failed to use ordinary care
  • The driver failed to obey a safety statute, keep a proper lookout, or keep their vehicle under proper control to avoid striking the pedestrian
  • Negligence was a cause of the collision
  • The pedestrian was not negligent
