Pedestrian Accident Laws in Sebring

Florida law mandate that drivers must yield to pedestrians crossing the street within a crosswalk and when traffic signals permit. Pedestrians are required to use sidewalks where provided; if sidewalks are absent, they should walk on the left side of the roadway facing oncoming traffic.

Furthermore, pedestrians must obey all traffic control devices and signals. Both pedestrians and motorists share the responsibility of staying vigilant and adhering to these laws to maintain a safe environment for all road users.

Do Pedestrians Always Have the Right of Way?

Florida law grants pedestrians the right of way primarily at marked crosswalks and intersections, provided they adhere to traffic signals and controls. However, when crossing outside of these designated areas, pedestrians are required to yield to oncoming traffic.

This shared responsibility between pedestrians and drivers helps maintain order and safety on the roadways. Both parties must stay vigilant and follow the laws to prevent accidents and ensure everyone's safety. If you have questions about liability if your pedestrian accident case, call our attorneys today and arrange a free consultation.

How a Pedestrian Accident Attorney Can Help You

Additionally, we can represent you in court if a fair settlement cannot be reached, advocating for your rights and helping you achieve the best possible outcome while you concentrate on healing.

Damages You Can Recover

If you've been injured in a pedestrian accident, you can seek to recover a variety of damages. These include economic damages such as medical expenses for treatments, surgeries, and ongoing therapy, as well as compensation for lost wages if you are unable to work.

Non-economic damages might also be awarded for pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life due to your injuries. If your injuries result in long-term or permanent disability, you can claim future lost income.

In cases where the driver's behavior was especially reckless, you might also be eligible for punitive damages, which are intended to punish and deter such conduct.
