When pedestrians fall victim to motor vehicle accidents, the end results are generally catastrophic. Unfortunately, many pedestrians suffer serious personal injury because some drivers don’t understand or observe the rules of the road that govern the right of way at crosswalks, stoplights, or even stop signs or drivers who are speeding.
According to the NHTSA, Florida ranks as the second most hazardous state in the U.S. for pedestrians. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration counted 487 pedestrian fatalities in Florida in 2010 – 112 fewer deaths than California and 142 more than third-place Texas.

They will try to settle the case for as little as possible, leaving pedestrian accident victims with monetary obligations for medical bills, vocational rehabilitation needs, and psychological trauma.
