Everyone is very nice and I got a great outcome on my settlement. I Would recommend this firm to anyone looking for a PI or Workers' compensation attorney. Thank you guys! Keep up the good work.

Were you injured in an unmarked crosswalk? | West Palm Beach Accident attorneys 1-800-872-4878

For decades, thousands of pedestrians have been hit and injured while crossing the road. US officials have sought ways to reduce deaths and injuries among pedestrians. They tried various methods, including putting up physical barriers to prevent people from walking on the streets and installing rudimentary crossing signs. But it wasn't until 1951 when painting a pedestrian crosswalk was created. Since the invention of the painted crosswalk, it has saved lives and prevented pedestrian injuries. However, many crosswalks remain unmarked, and pedestrians injured at unmarked crosswalks have legal rights.

 

If you have been injured as a pedestrian involving an unmarked crosswalk, it would be beneficial to contact an experienced West Palm Beach pedestrian accident attorney. As an injured pedestrian victim, you have the right to compensation. Your accident injury attorneys at Advocates USA will protect those rights to ensure justice is served and you are compensated for your injuries. Contact us at 1-800-872-4878 for a free consultation.

 

What is an unmarked crosswalk?

Marked crosswalks are controlled, where traffic signals are placed to control vehicles and pedestrians. However, not all crosswalks are in these controlled areas, and some do not even need to be marked. An unmarked crosswalk is the extension of a trail, sidewalk, or any other pedestrian pathway. They're located exclusively at intersections where a marked crosswalk could be but painted lines, or a "walk" signal is not indicated. However, the rules for pedestrians using an unmarked crosswalk and crossing a street where there is no unmarked crosswalk is the same.

 

Pedestrians must use their duty of due care while crossing the street and be aware of their surroundings. In Florida, vehicles have the right of way if a pedestrian uses an unmarked crosswalk. However, if a car approaches and hits a pedestrian recklessly and negligently, the vehicle's driver could be liable for the pedestrian's injuries. Motorists are usually responsible when approaching crosswalks; however, if there is an unmarked crosswalk and drivers are unfamiliar with the area, they often don't look out for pedestrians. This is where you need to be extra vigilant when crossing in an unmarked crosswalk.

 

You have legal options if you are hit while crossing the road and abided by the law. First, speak to our West Palm Beach pedestrian lawyers so we can evaluate your accident and injuries. Next, our accident and injury attorneys at Advocates USA can provide options if you suffered injuries and proceed with a personal injury claim.

 

Are you protected in an unmarked crosswalk?

Among Florida's most common types of pedestrian accidents are those that occur in marked and unmarked crosswalks. 9% of all fatal pedestrian accidents occur while the victim is in the crosswalk.

 

Florida law protects all pedestrians as long as the pedestrians are legally abiding by the pedestrian traffic laws. All motorists must stop and allow pedestrians to cross the road safely before proceeding through the intersection when signals are prompted. Even if you were injured in an unmarked crosswalk, you could still be protected and hire a personal injury attorney at Advocates USA to file a claim. 

 

Recovering compensation depends on various factors, and your compensation for injuries may be reduced if you are held partially at fault. For this reason, it is highly advised to hire an experienced west palm beach pedestrian attorney who knows the laws and can help explore all options.
