Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Pedestrian accidents in Florida are, unfortunately, quite a common occurrence. This is especially true in urban areas such as Miami where pedestrians share the roadway with motorists on a regular basis. According to statistics, about 75% of all Florida pedestrian accidents involve a visit to the ER. About 20% of all traffic accident deaths in Florida are attributable to pedestrian crashes. Pedestrians are extremely vulnerable to being seriously injured or killed in a crash, especially compared to victims of other types of traffic accidents.
If you or a family member have been affected by a pedestrian accident in our state, you may have certain legal rights. In the aftermath of the accident, it is important to speak with a local Florida pedestrian accident attorney.
