Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Because pedestrians have no protection from harm, they are prone to some of the most catastrophic injuries. Unfortunately, many pedestrian accidents in Florida also lead to fatalities every year. In the early months of 2019, it was reported that approximately 268 people were killed in pedestrian accidents due to the recklessness of others. These accidents occur in the blink of an eye when drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them. If you have suffered from serious injuries caused by a pedestrian accident, you should have the skilled help of a legal advocate on your side.
Being injured in a Florida pedestrian accident might be one of the most traumatic things that you have ever endured. Some of the most severe injuries that stem from these collisions include spinal cord injuries, TBIs, fractures, paralysis, and more. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to the roads around them to keep pedestrians safe but the unfortunate truth is that this does not always occur.
