Pedestrian Accidents Everyone is a pedestrian. Unfortunately, many automobile drivers do not respect the rights of pedestrians. It is the motorist’s responsibility to do everything possible to avoid pedestrian collisions. Turning motorists must yield to pedestrians at intersections with traffic signals. Motorists must yield to pedestrians crossing the street or driveway at any marked mid-block crossing, driveway, or intersection without traffic signals. When these types of rules are not followed, the pedestrian can suffer serious injury and even death. Here are some safety tips to lessen the likelihood of you becoming a pedestrian accident victim: Always walk on the sidewalk if it is available to you. If there is no sidewalk and you have to walk on the roadway, always walk facing traffic. Dress in brightly colored clothing to be more visible. Always cross the street at a marked crosswalk. – Practice Areas – Motorcycle Accidents Learn More Pedestrian Accidents Learn More Wrongful Death Learn more Auto Accidents Learn More Bicycle Accidents Learn More – Testimonials – “You can’t go wrong with Frank Marsalisi!” Frank was referred to me by a former client of his after my accident with nothing but great reviews, both professionally and personally. From day one there was a level of comfortability and trust built based on what would be in my best interest moving forward. Never once did Frank make my case about what was in it for him but about healing my injuries in order to move on as normal as possible with my life. – Karlie “One of a kind lawyer …brilliance!” Frank has exceptional auto accident liability law abilities and he is also very well-versed in state auto insurance laws. One of the things I like about Frank is that he never tried to sugar coat anything for me. If we were headed for trouble, he would let me know what the trouble was and what our options were. I always appreciated his honesty. This is trait that I do not find in many of today’s lawyers but Frank has performed integrity well beyond his means. – Ms. C. M.
