negligent auto drivers often cause pedestrian accidents
Traffic accidents between vehicles and pedestrians are common enough that one pedestrian death occurs about every 1.6 hours on our nation’s roads and highways, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
A pedestrian is typically defined as any person traveling on foot, whether they are walking or running. Pedestrians also include people in wheelchairs or using small wheels for transportation such as roller skates or skateboards.
Why do I need a personal injury attorney for my pedestrian accident?
Because of Florida’s “no fault” insurance laws, pedestrians who have been injured by a car may have to go through multiple steps to seek compensation for medical bills, physical pain and other losses.
Our personal injury attorneys have the experience and resources needed to navigate this complicated process that can include negotiations with insurance companies and lawsuits against negligent automobile drivers.
