Pedestrian Injury Because of Car Accidents in FL
Almost 5,000 pedestrians die in auto accidents every year -four people die yearly in the Miami Beach area alone. In Florida, pedestrians almost always have the right of way. Pedestrian accidents are often caused by drivers failing to yield the right of way, speeding, being distracted or not paying attention. Usually, drivers who have hit pedestrians are entirely at fault, due to negligence or recklessness. Common injuries to pedestrians involved in motor vehicle accidents include:
- Broken, sprained or fractured bones
- Head and neck injuries
- Road rash
- Nerve injury
Many injuries sustained by victims of pedestrian accidents are life-changing, even fatal. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed by a vehicle while on foot, contact a Miami injury attorney to help you file suit against the person who wronged you. You may have the right to compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Lost quality of life
- Punitive damages
- Wrongful death
- And more...
While the driver's insurance company will likely offer you a settlement, do not accept their offer until you first speak with a Miami pedestrian accident lawyer. Your attorney always works to secure your interests while an insurance company adjuster will work to only provide you the minimum acceptable settlement. You may qualify for hundreds or thousands of dollars more than the insurance company settlement.
