Pedestrian accidents can be relatively minor or seriously life changing and typically happen while crossing a street, walking along the side of a road, in a parking lot or recreational area, or when a car jumps the curb onto the sidewalk.

While Massachusetts law generally favors the rights of pedestrians over vehicles, determining who had the right of way can be a deciding factor. If, for example, a pedestrian crosses a street in a crosswalk or with a “walk” sign at a traffic light, the pedestrian clearly has the right of way.

But, if the same pedestrian crosses a street between parked cars away from an intersection, that could have a different outcome. No matter what side of the street you find yourself on, if you’ve been injured you should contact a Framingham pedestrian accident lawyer from Joel H. Schwartz, PC today.
