Pedestrian Accident Attorneys in Florida
Being warm year-round and having numerous tourist attractions have made Florida one of the deadliest states for pedestrians. Our constant influx of tourists have made it so the Tampa Bay, Orlando, Jacksonville, and Miami areas to be in the top four positions on the list of metropolitan areas most dangerous for pedestrians. One out of every four auto accident related fatalities in Florida involves a person on foot.
Pedestrian Accidents Causes
Most auto accidents involving pedestrians are caused by drivers’ inattention. Some habits like texting, eating, or even something as simple as changing the radio station can distract a driver and take their focus away from the road and people in the surrounding area.
Even drivers who are paying attention may still fail to see a stop sign or to properly examine an intersection for people and other vehicles. Other instances include speeding, failing to stop when a school bus’s arm is extended, and driving under the influence.

We see way too many situations where pedestrian who have been injured try to work things out with the vehicle owner’s insurance company. Unfortunately, in almost all of these cases, the pedestrian is being grossly undercompensated for their injuries. Most people don’t realize that insurance companies don’t have people’s best interests at heart and accept unfair settlements.
That is why it is extremely important that you hire and experienced and knowledgeable attorney who knows the ins and outs of cases like these and will do their best to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
