It should be noted that Florida is a comparative fault state. As such, a pedestrian can pursue a case or cause of action for personal injuries even if the pedestrian is partially at fault for the car - pedestrian collision. Certainly, when available, a pedestrian should use designated crosswalks and otherwise follow traffic signals and pedestrian lights and signals; however, drivers on Florida roads, school zones, parking lots and elsewhere should be aware of the location, presence ,and movement of pedestrians. Many car - pedestrian collisions can be avoided with slower speeds and less distracted driving.

It was a tragedy tha could have been avoided. The wrongful death of this young girl had a ripple effect through her family, school, and community.
