Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Pedestrian accidents happen more commonly in Florida than many other places in the U.S. According to recent statistics, approximately 20% of fatal accidents in Florida were caused by pedestrian-related accidents. These accidents tend to occur in the blink of an eye when drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them. Pedestrians are prone to some of the most catastrophic and even fatal results due to the fact that they have no protection from harm on our roads.
