Far to often, pedestrian-car accidents occur because the driver of the car is not paying attention or is distracted. The driver may be talking on a cell-phone, or changing the station on the radio when making a turn at an intersection. The driver may be looking for other cars, but they are not making a conscious effort to look for pedestrians that may be entering the crosswalk.
Automobile drivers have a duty to watch for other vehicles as well as pedestrians, not only in designated crosswalks but also outside of those areas. Most schools, churches and neighborhoods have signs to warn drivers to watch for children that could possibly run into the road. Even if you are or a loved one was partially at fault for crossing the street outside the crosswalk, the person in the car may also be liable. In New York, you can recover damages as long as your fault is not over 51 percent.
