Re: Sued by a Pedestrian for an Accident Caused By A Different Driver
unless the injured party can show some fault on your part, you should not be found liable for anything here. I suspect your insurance company is attempting to get you released as a defendant and will hopefully be successful. Getting tied up into such a suit is something it would be preferable to avoid if possible. If the plaintiff can argue there was some fault on your part that caused them to be injured, you could end up on the losing end here.
It is typical to file suit against all possible parties. If you fail to sue the actual liable party, by the time any given suit comes to completion, it is often beyond the statute of limitations to initiate another suit. So, you just sue everybody that was involved. Generally their attorneys will get the innocently involved parties released from the suit early on.
So, what has your attorney said so far?
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
