Can a New York pedestrian accident victim still make a claim when crossing the street without a crosswalk?
New York City is a huge city. It has many streets, it has many sidewalks. Although we like to think about it, not every crosswalk or safe place for a pedestrian to cross is marked with white lines. Just because it’s not marked with white lines does not mean that you can’t cross there. The law assumes that any safe passage or any connection between corners is a crosswalk that you are entitled to cross in and cars are supposed to yield to you when you are in that crosswalk anywhere in the city.
