About West Palm Beach, FL

West Palm Beach is a city located in Palm Beach County, Florida, and is the county seat. Although a part of the Miami metropolitan area, West Palm Beach is in fact the oldest incorporated municipality in South Florida, having been established two years prior to Miami, in 1894. The early decades following West Palm Beach’s formal establishment were marked by economic growth driven by agriculture in winter vegetables and tropical fruits, along with tourism that spurred the 1920s Florida land boom. During that decade, West Palm Beach’s population quadrupled. Although devastated by the 1928 Okeechobee hurricane, West Palm Beach again saw rapid growth following World War II, with many veterans returning to the area where they had trained. In recent decades, efforts have been made to redevelop West Palm Beach’s downtown areas and to preserve much of the city’s historical architecture.

Frequently Asked Questions about Pedestrian Accidents in West Palm Beach, FL

Is a driver always at fault when hitting a pedestrian?

Although traffic laws are designed to help keep pedestrians safe from collisions with motor vehicles, the laws impose rules on both motorists and pedestrians. For example, pedestrians are required to cross at an intersection or marked crosswalk. Pedestrians must also walk on paved sidewalks wherever available. If crossing a street, intersection, or crosswalk occupied by traffic, the pedestrian is required to yield to traffic. Pedestrians may only cross at signalised intersections or crosswalks when the signal instructs them to do so. When pedestrians violate these laws and get into an accident, the pedestrian may be found partially or primarily at fault for the accident.

What to do after a pedestrian accident?

After being involved in a pedestrian accident, steps you should take to protect your legal rights and options include taking photos or video of the accident scene (or having someone do if for you if you cannot), seeking medical attention as soon as possible to diagnose the injuries you sustained and to begin treatment, and keeping records of your expenses and lost wages. In addition, you should also talk to a West Palm Beach pedestrian accident lawyer from Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A. as soon as possible to begin the process of pursuing a legal claim for compensation.
