Sunrise Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Broward County Attorney Taking on Every Insurance Company throughout Florida
Sunrise residents and other South Floridians enjoy walking because of the
sunny weather year round, or for exercise. However, for people that do
not own vehicles, walking is often an option or the only method to get
around. Unfortunately, pedestrians are always at a risk for being involved
in an accident, and many times, it is not their fault. The person walking
does have an obligation to watch out for traffic, particularly when crossing
in front of driveways. In fact, many accident cases occur when people
walking are struck by a vehicle exiting a parking lot or shopping center
caused in part by hedges or signs blocking the vision of the driver, the
pedestrian, or both. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident
due to another person’s negligence, you might be able to have a
case with our firm.
Always make sure that if there is a vehicle approaching you when you are
walking, that not only do you make eye contact with that driver, but before
walking in front of the car, make certain that that driver has actually
seen you. Sometimes, we assume that a driver sees us, and if we’re
wrong, well . . . So make sure the driver waves you to proceed forward.
Otherwise, best practice is to assume that you have not been seen.
