We help those injured in pedestrian accidents

Pedestrians are a common sight in Florida, especially when the weather is pleasant, as it is much of the year in the Sunshine State. Moreover, many major cities in the state aim to be pedestrian-friendly. Pedestrians have every right to be out and about.

Unfortunately, that means that auto-pedestrian accidents will occur. Motorists are often in a hurry or are distracted, and they may simply not see a pedestrian before it is too late. Even pedestrians who are following the rules, crossing in crosswalks when they have the right of way at an intersection, can be struck by a car.

Auto-pedestrian accidents are not limited to Florida. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, each year across the U.S., over 75,000 people are injured in auto-pedestrian accidents. What it comes down to is, on average, a pedestrian is injured by a motor vehicle every seven minutes.

Pedestrians who have been struck by a car can suffer catastrophic injuries, including injuries to the head, spine, broken bones, internal damage and more. Many times, these pedestrians did nothing wrong -- they were the unfortunate victims of a negligent driver. However, pedestrians who find themselves in such situations should not be forced to bear all the costs associated with the damages they suffered. The responsible driver should be held accountable.

At our firm, we understand how devastating it can be when a pedestrian is struck by a car. Sometimes, the injuries suffered can be life-long. It is in situations like this that it is important to explore all your legal options, so you can take the actions you believe are necessary to be compensated.
