What Are the Main Causes of Pedestrian Accidents?

In the simplest terms, negligence is the leading cause of pedestrian accidents. More specifically, negligent motorists (and other parties, such as bicyclists) frequently play a significant role in these devastating accidents.

Some of the main causes of pedestrian accidents include:

Unfortunately, even when you are following the law and acting with reasonable care, you cannot always avoid an accident. When you are struck by a large, fast-moving, multi-ton vehicle, you are likely to sustain significant catastrophic injuries and a wide range of lasting physical, emotional, and financial consequences.
At the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A., we stand up for injured pedestrians who, through no fault of their own, have suffered immense injuries, lasting pain, and considerable financial hardships. Our Orange Park pedestrian accident lawyers are ready to listen to your story and share how they can help you get back on your feet during a free initial consultation and case evaluation.

Are Pedestrians Ever at Fault?

Believe it or not, pedestrians do not always have the right of way. In fact, people on foot are required to share the road safely with motorists and obey all applicable laws. These laws are meant to not only keep pedestrians safe but also to ensure the safety of everyone else on the road.

In Florida, pedestrians have the following responsibilities:

Pedestrians may be considered partly or wholly at fault when they fail to yield the right of way to vehicles when required to do so. For example, if a pedestrian starts to cross a street where there is no marked crosswalk and a car is approaching too quickly to stop, the motorist may (successfully) argue that the pedestrian entered the roadway unsafely and in violation of the law.

How Comparative Fault May Affect Your Claim

Because Florida follows a rule of pure comparative fault, you can still seek compensation for your damages if you were partly to blame (or if the insurance company argues you were partly to blame) for the accident. This is true even if you were more at fault than the other person or party. However, your recovery will be affected if you are found to share some of the blame.
Under Florida’s pure comparative fault rule, anyone who is found to be partly at fault for an accident will only be able to recover a certain percentage of the total recovery they would have otherwise received. This percentage is determined based on the individual’s percentage of fault. For example, if a jury finds you 40% to blame for the accident, you can only recover up to 60% of the total compensation you would have been able to recover if you were not at fault whatsoever.
