I was jaywalking and hit by a car. The driver saw me and could have avoided me, can I still sue?

Frequently Asked Question Video for Wisconsin Personal Injury

People often cross the street not at the location of the cross walk, in other words they are jaywalking. The fact that they are doing that does not prevent them from recovering for their injuries if they are hit by a motor vehicle.  The question will become a comparison of negligence between the driver and the individual crossing the street.
