Pedestrian Protection Laws in Florida

Pedestrians in Florida have rights and responsibilities just like every other road user. They are classified as vulnerable road users under law, and generally have the right of way when crossing the street. Drivers and bicycle riders have a duty to take due care to avoid collisions with pedestrians. On the other hand, pedestrians also have a duty to act responsibly on the streets and while crossing the roadways. For example, under FL Stat § 316.130 (2016) pedestrians crossing a roadway other than at an intersection or marked crosswalk are required to yield right-of-way to all vehicles on the roadway. Where there are control signals in operation, pedestrians must cross at the marked crosswalk. Pedestrians are also prohibited from crossing a roadway intersection diagonally unless they are authorized to do so by a traffic control device or traffic control officer. Regardless of the responsibilities placed on pedestrians to protect their own safety, every driver is required by law to exercise due care to avoid colliding with a pedestrian and causing them harm.

Florida’s Comparative Fault Rule

A pedestrian who fails to abide by the traffic regulations may be affected by Florida’s comparative fault rule. This means that any damages they are entitled to recover may be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to their actions in violation of pedestrian regulations. However, many pedestrian accidents are caused by negligent motorists. Pedestrians, being vulnerable road users, often suffer the most damages in such accidents and may face a long and expensive road to recovery. If you are in this position, you deserve to get financial compensation from the party who caused your injury.
