Crosswalk Laws in Massachusetts

A crosswalk accident occurs when a motor vehicle collides with a pedestrian in a crosswalk. Unfortunately, injuries sustained as a result of these types of accidents could range from minor to serious injuries, such as:

  • Paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Brain damage
  • Back injury
  • Organ damage
  • Wrongful death

Crosswalk accidents happen for numerous reasons. Often, the motorists are distracted while driving and fail to pay attention to the pedestrians in the crosswalk. Motorists are legally required to maintain a proper lookout for pedestrians and yield their right of way when driving. Pedestrians also have a duty to pay attention to the traffic laws and follow the “walk” and “don’t walk” signs.
