Florida pedestrian accident leaves victims with head injuries

Victims of pedestrian accidents are legally protected from the harm suffered in a pedestrian accident. In a nearby Florida community northwest of the Tampa area, a pedestrian accident recently left two pedestrian victims seriously injured. Authorities responded to the pedestrian accidents and the two victims were taken to a local hospital for treatment of head injuries. The roadway where the pedestrian accident took place had to be closed in one direction.

2017 pedestrian fatalities held steady, but concerns remain

A recent annual report stated that the number of pedestrian fatalities around the county hovered just under 6,000. With 5,984 deaths reported, the number of deaths stayed static over the last year after showing marked increases in both 2016 and 2015.

If I wasn't in the crosswalk, can I still seek compensation?

Although it is always a good idea for pedestrians in Hillsborough, Florida, to use crosswalks when crossing the street whenever they are available, sometimes people are in a hurry to get from point A to point B, and decide to cross a street along the fastest route. At other times, a pedestrian might not notice a nearby crosswalk or may just forget to use it.

Pedestrian accidents on the rise in Florida, across country

Floridians are fortunate that even in winter, mild temperatures make so that they can walk places. They may walk to shops, to school or to work. However, walking on Florida's streets is not always safe. Between the first part of 2015 and the first part of 2016, the number of deadly pedestrian accidents increased in Florida from 277 to 301, which marks an increase of 8.7 percent.

Driver sought after hit-and-run

A Tampa woman was fatally injured following a hit and run accident on a major street in the area. Police are currently looking for the driver and are asking the public for any leads. The police are also looking for video of the area around the time of the accident in the hope that they will identify the driver who hit the woman and then left the scene of the accident.

We can still help when the other driver doesn't have insurance

A previous post on this blog discussed how uninsured motorists coverage works in Florida. Basically, assuming a Tampa resident bought the coverage when he or she purchased automobile insurance, uninsured motorists coverage offers an extra layer of protection in case he or she gets hurt and the other person did not follow Florida's laws about having automobile insurance.
