Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Intersections are some of the most dangerous places on our roads and pedestrians are harmed in these areas every single year. Between 2008 and 2017 in Florida, over 5,400 pedestrian deaths occurred and hundreds of thousands of pedestrian injuries. Pedestrians have no protection from harm on our roads, which is why these accidents are most likely to end in disastrous results. When a pedestrian has been catastrophically harmed by another party’s actions, it is essential that victims speak with a professional personal injury attorney as they move forward.
