North
Miami Cross Walk
Accident Attorney

Although a cross walk is a designated safe place for pedestrians to cross busy North Miami roads, it only takes one distracted or reckless driver to inflict devastating injuries. Far from safely crossing the road, you could be facing mounting medical expenses, lost earnings while you recover from your injuries and, in some cases, permanent disability. Particularly severe cross walk accidents can also result in fatal injuries, forcing families to come to terms with the loss of a loved one. Schoolchildren are at high risk of being involved in North Miami cross walk accidents, due to the number of inattentive and negligence drivers who refuse to regulate their speed and pay due attention while travelling through school zones.

Your child being injured in a traffic accident is likely to be one of your worst nightmares but, if it comes true, you can rest assured in the knowledge that a Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert, P.A North Miami cross walk accident attorney will use the full force of Florida law to hold the responsible driver accountable for the consequences of their actions.

How
Florida Law
Governs Cross Walks

Pedestrians at a cross walk in Florida always have the right of way, however, the frequency at which we handle North Miami cross walk accident cases illustrates that, all too often, drivers fail to honor this.

The legislation governing cross walks in North Miami, and across Florida, is Florida Statute 316.130, which clearly outlines the responsibilities and obligations of both drivers and pedestrians:

316.130 7(a):

The driver of a vehicle at an intersection that has a traffic control signal in place shall stop before entering the crosswalk and remain stopped to allow a pedestrian, with a permitted signal, to cross a roadway when the pedestrian is in the crosswalk or steps into the crosswalk and is upon the half of the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling or when the pedestrian is approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to be in danger.

316.130 7(b):

The driver of a vehicle at any crosswalk where signage so indicates shall stop and remain stopped to allow a pedestrian to cross a roadway when the pedestrian is in the crosswalk or steps into the crosswalk and is upon the half of the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling or when the pedestrian is approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to be in danger.

316.130 7(c):

When traffic control signals are not in place or in operation and there is no signage indicating otherwise, the driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way, slowing down or stopping if need be to so yield, to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within a crosswalk when the pedestrian is upon the half of the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling or when the pedestrian is approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to be in danger. Any pedestrian crossing a roadway at a point where a pedestrian tunnel or overhead pedestrian crossing has been provided shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles upon the roadway.

316.130 9:

Whenever any vehicle is stopped at a marked crosswalk or at any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection to permit a pedestrian to cross the roadway, the driver of any other vehicle approaching from the rear shall not overtake and pass such stopped vehicle.
