Can a Florida pedestrian accident victim still make a claim when crossing the street without a crosswalk?
In the State of Florida a pedestrian can still make a claim even though that they’ve crossed the street without a crosswalk. The truth is, in the State of Florida, there’s so many roads and so many intersections, it would be nearly impossible for every city, county, state or the federal government to put marked crosswalks at every single intersection. As a result, the State of Florida legislature has allowed for something called an unmarked crosswalk. Basically, that is the area at an intersection where pedestrians should cross, even though there may not be marking on the ground. As a result, a pedestrian can file a claim even if they are crossing at one of those unmarked crosswalks.
