What are my rights as a pedestrian?
Pedestrians enjoy the same rights as drivers, bicyclists, and motorcyclists, despite the fact that they are walking to and from their destinations, rather than driving. Additionally, because there are designated walking spaces, such as sidewalks and crosswalks, pedestrians have every right to expect that drivers of all sorts will respect their right-of-way and their right to walk. As such, when a driver violates these rights or acts recklessly behind the wheel, causing a pedestrian accident, a pedestrian can seek financial compensation and help through a personal injury claim.
