Florida Pedestrian Laws Are Designed to Protect Pedestrians
The Florida Legislature passed “Pedestrian Accident Laws” designed to protect joggers, walkers, and bicyclists, who have been struck by negligent drivers. These legal rights provide victims with a legal path to recover fair monetary compensation for injuries, damages, economic losses, or the loss of a loved one. Car accident insurance companies vigorously defend against these types of injury and wrongful death claims. That is why you or your loved one should have an advocate on your side to protect your right to recover monetary compensation for your claim.

According to accident data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, thousands of pedestrians are injured or killed annually in the United States. The CDC estimates that pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely to die in pedestrian accidents as compared to the occupants of motor vehicles.
A majority of all pedestrian accidents happen at night and in urban areas. The most common types of pedestrian accidents are:
- Crosswalk Accidents: Most pedestrians who are struck in crosswalks are hit by drivers trying to make left-hand turns, distracted drivers, at night by drivers who didn’t see the pedestrian. Pedestrians should increase their visibility by wearing highly reflective clothing and by carrying flashlights.
- Hit-and-run Accidents: Hit-and run accidents occur a lot. Hit-and-run collisions typically involve pedestrians who have been hit by distracted drivers, drunk drivers, distracted drivers, and those who accidentally strike pedestrians on isolated roads and flee from the scene out of fear.
- Parking Lot Accidents: Drivers pulling into or backing out of parking spaces often fail to make sure it’s clear before driving. Moreover, a majority of parking lot pedestrian accidents are caused by driver impatience.
Proving Fault and Establishing Negligence in Your Florida Pedestrian Accident Injury Case
In order to win your pedestrian accident case, your attorney must prove to the court that the at-fault party’s actions were negligent and the at-fault party caused the pedestrian accident resulting in injuries or death.
Florida’s Theory of Negligence – Proving Negligence is Comprised of Three Elements:
Duty of Care
Did the at-fault driver owe the pedestrian a Duty of Care? In many cases, the pedestrian has the right of way. In a pedestrian accident lawsuit, the most important legal question to answer is, “How much care was reasonably expected?” In Florida, drivers must obey the law and avoid striking other vehicles and pedestrians.
Breach of Duty
The second key element in proving negligence is proving the driver breached their Duty of Care. For example, if the driver of a car was driving while intoxicated and they struck you, that driver violated the law because they were driving while drunk. That would be a clear Breach of Duty since people are not permitted to drive drunk.
After your Pedestrian Accident Attorney has proved that the driver had a “Duty of Care” and the driver breached that duty, your attorney needs to establish that the driver’s Breach of Duty resulted in the pedestrian accident and caused new injuries and/or death.
