Pedestrian Accidents in Florida: Deadliest in the Nation
As a pedestrian, you are at risk of serious and severe injury if in an accident with a vehicle. Unfortunately, if you are in the state of Florida, your risks as a pedestrian are the worst in the nation. According to a recent study, completed by the National Complete Streets Coalition – Smart Growth America, Florida has been ranked first in the United states for pedestrian accidents. According to the study, people of color, as well as the elderly, are most likely to be killed in a pedestrian accident.
Accidents can be devastating for all involved, though the damages become far more severe if you are a pedestrian--simply because you are not covered with the protective exterior of a vehicle, leaving you exposed. Oftentimes, drivers refuse to accept responsibility for their actions, placing the blame on those who were injured. This is further propagated with the law, as law enforcement are often quick to question the pedestrian as well. This bias can make it difficult for you to obtain the compensation you deserve, which is where our firm will step in--fighting tirelessly on your behalf.
