Brevard County Pedestrian Accidents
Whose fault is it when a pedestrian gets hit?
When a person crosses the street safely and legally, the last thing they
expect is to get hit by a car. Most
pedestrian accidents are the result of a negligent driver who fails to yield or stop for a
pedestrian who is crossing the road. Other cases of pedestrian accidents
where the liability is on the other party include bicyclists riding on
the sidewalk, motorists who pull into crosswalks and motorists who hit
pedestrians walking legal in the road. The increase use of cell phones,
text messaging and other distractions while driving are often times the
cause for pedestrian accidents. Use caution when Florida law is generally
on the pedestrian's side in accident cases unless it can be proven
that they stepped in front of a car without giving them adequate time
and distance to stop or that they were crossing or walking in the street
