Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Pedestrian accidents are known for being some of the most horrific and life-altering accidents that occur on our roads. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm against large vehicles. In one recent year’s time, it is estimated that approximately 20% of fatal accidents involved pedestrians. If you have lost somebody that you love in a pedestrian accident, it is essential that you have the help of an accident attorney by your side.
Fatal accidents occur in the blink of an eye when drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them. Pedestrians have the right-of-way on our roads, which means that they are offered special protection from harm.
