Pedestrian accidents can occur at any place, at any time and can involve adults and children alike. The innocent victims of these accidents can be left with injuries that have life altering consequences.
On average, a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle every hour in the state of Florida. These pedestrian accidents account for nearly 500 deaths and over 7,000 injuries on a yearly basis.
Due to the nature of the injuries involved in these collisions, the cost of medical treatment can quickly exceed the victim’s ability to pay.
Both pedestrians and motorists have a responsibility to follow the laws of the road. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, the pedestrian, driver or both can be responsible for the collision.
If the driver of an automobile is found completely or partially at fault, they can be held accountable, including compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and emotional damages.
