Walking can be risky, and no one wants to be hit by a truck or car. Accidents involving runners, joggers, and walkers happen every day. A collision between a vehicle or pedestrian can lead to severe injuries. A pedestrian is not protected against the force of moving vehicles, so that any collision can cause serious injuries, such as paralysis, disfigurement, or brain injury. It is important to consult legal counsel if you have been hit by a moving vehicle. An experienced attorney specializing in auto pedestrians can help you document your claim, communicate with the insurance company, and negotiate a fair settlement. If negotiations fail, they will also prepare your lawsuit for trial.
A reckless or careless motorist can cause severe and potentially life-threatening injuries to pedestrians, no matter how vigilant they are. Collisions can happen when motorists ignore pedestrians crossing streets or speed in high-pedestrian areas like schools, public places, or nightspots. Many pedestrian accidents occur at night due to reduced visibility, and half of all pedestrian accidents happen on weekends when runners, walkers, and joggers share the streets. Alcohol can also play a role in car accidents, as many pedestrians killed were drunk at the time.

Florida has a comparative negligence principle when experts determine a share of fault for each party. If a person fails to obey a stop sign and hits another vehicle with the right-of-way, that driver is generally assumed to be at fault.
Pedestrians do not always have the right of way. The statute says that motor vehicles have to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians that cross the street in a marked crosswalk or an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection.
Pedestrians who are careless in their actions when crossing, such as running across the street or wandering in and out of traffic, may be at fault if an accident occurs.
