i was hit the other day when crossing. the walk signal was on, but i was crossing at an angle towards the crosswalk. the car bumped into me slowly so the driver would have seen me. was i wrong?
It will depend on the exact state law - but in New Jersey for example assuming you weren't actually on the crosswalk when you were hit you would be jaywalking and would be required to yield right-of-way to the vehicle (emphasis mine):
Always cross at corners, within marked crosswalks where available.
If crossing in other locations, yield the right of way to vehicles. Failure to obey the law carries a $54 fine (court costs additional; C.39:4-32, 33)
