A pedestrian was hit by a vehicle on Hershel Street in Jacksonville, Florida. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office are investigating the incident but do not believe, at this time, that the driver was at fault. Drivers have a duty to yield to bicyclist and pedestrians but there are instances when an negligent bicyclist or pedestrian makes an accident unavoidable. While it is important as to how the police investigate an incident, the findings are not binding on the injured party or driver in a civil matter or a lawsuit. As such, it is often times helpful to have representation from a Jacksonville Florida personal injury lawyer to make sure that your rights are protected and enforced.
