Can A Pedestrian A With Disability Be At Fault?

Baltimore personal injury lawyers sometimes argue cases involving the unfortunate meeting of car and pedestrian. As you might imagine, cars are undefeated in these contests. Some rules establish who is at fault. Special rules apply where the pedestrian is operating under a disability. Most people would surmise that a driver must yield his or her right of way to: 

  • a visually impaired individual using a guide dog or walking with the assistance of a predominantly white cane.

  • a person in a wheelchair 
  • using crutches,
  • or â€‹using a cane
