Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Pedestrians are some of the most at-risk parties on our roads and susceptible to some of the most severe harm. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm against motor vehicles. Between the years 2008 and 2017, it was reported that approximately 5,433 pedestrians lost their lives in these horrific accidents and many others were injured and hospitalized. If you have been injured in one of these accidents, you should always speak with a skilled personal injury attorney.
