Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Pedestrian accidents are some of the most catastrophic and fatal accidents that occur on Florida roads. According to recent statistics, approximately 20% of fatal accidents in the entire U.S. involve pedestrians. Many pedestrians are killed or sent to area hospitals with serious injuries each year. This is due to the fact that they are some of the most vulnerable parties on our roads and have no protection from harm against motor vehicle drivers. Being injured in a pedestrian accident might be one of the most life-altering things that you have ever experienced. Luckily, with the help of a Florida accident attorney, you can move forward during these difficult times.
Many of the injuries that result from pedestrian accidents are life-threatening and unpleasant, which can have a huge impact on your life. Some of the most common pedestrian-related injuries include spinal cord injuries, TBIs, fractures, and more. Many pedestrian accidents occur every year when drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them. In the blink of an eye, you could become unexpectedly injured in one of these horrific accidents, not knowing where you are going to turn.
