Pedestrian Accident Lawyer & Attorney
One moment you are crossing a street. The next, you are in the hospital wondering what happened. If a pedestrian motor vehicle accident caused you injury and interferes with the way you live your life, you deserve justice and full and fair compensation for your injuries. In Florida, many pedestrian vs. automobile accidents are caused for the following reasons:
Distracted drivers — Cell phones and smartphones are incredible tools that make our lives easier. But, when used while driving, they can also increase our chances of being involved in an auto accident. Drivers who pay more attention to text messages, phone calls and GPS apps are hazardous to everyone on the road.
Drunk drivers — Despite strict laws and exhaustive media campaigns warning of the dangers of drinking and driving, many Florida residents still get behind the wheel after having one too many. Inebriated drivers may swerve, speed up or slow down suddenly and often have delayed reaction time.
Reckless drivers — Traffic signs, lights and laws exist for a reason. Individuals who speed, fail to stop or yield and who generally drive aggressively are a danger to motorists and pedestrians alike.
Injuries resulting from collisions between vehicles and pedestrians cause devastating financial losses in the forms of medical expenses, prescription and rehabilitation costs and lost wages, as well as non-economic damages of pain and suffering and, in some cases, punitive damages. Filing a personal injury legal claim can help you obtain the money you need to move on with your life and hold irresponsible and reckless drivers responsible for their actions.
