Pedestrian Accidents Still A Problem

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Centers for Disease Control state there was a slight decrease in pedestrian accidents between 2012 and 2013; however, pedestrian accidents are still a problem throughout Florida and the United States. On average, a pedestrian is injured every seven minutes and a pedestrian is killed every two hours in the United States. Only 40 percent of pedestrians surveyed believe a driver will yield the right of way even when they are in a marked crosswalk.

Even with state and federal campaigns designed to increase awareness of the dangers posed to pedestrians by drivers, pedestrians are still at a huge risk for injury every time they leave their home. If you or a loved one has been injured in a Florida pedestrian accident, contact a West Palm Beach pedestrian accident attorney as soon as possible to ensure you are treated fairly and receive the compensation you are entitled to receive under Florida’s personal injury laws.

Common Injuries Sustained From Pedestrian Accidents


Pedestrian accidents typically result in catastrophic injuries for the pedestrian because the pedestrian has no protection against the collision. The pedestrian takes the full force of the impact. Therefore, injuries in a pedestrian accident can result in life-threatening conditions and permanent disability.

Because pedestrian accidents involve traumatic injuries, the financial damages from a pedestrian accident can be substantial. Past medical bills and lost wages added to the future medical expenses and loss of income can quickly add into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Hiring an experienced Florida pedestrian accident attorney is your best chance of receiving full compensation for your damages, losses, and injuries.
