This is for car and pedestrian. And we’re in Massachusetts.
I’m in my car at an intersection and have a green light. There’s a cross walk and the signage is “Red” for “Don’t Cross.” But the pedestrian steps out in front of me anyway.
There is also a sign posted saying “State Law - Cars must yield to pedestrians in crosswalk.”
I am going to do everything possible to prevent hitting the pedestrian.
But let’s take the extreme case where the pedestrian is actually trying to get hit so he can sue me.
If he takes me or my insurance company to court - who’s at fault here? And does he have any legitimate claim for damages?
