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.

What Our Clients Say
The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again. - M.P.
After my accident, i felt like I was being pulled in a bunch of different directions. I really didn't know what to do and all I wanted was someone to shoot me straight.

I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable - D.L.
After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court. - S.C.
