Florida is one of four states that lead the nation in the number of accidents and deaths related to pedestrians. Pedestrian accidents can be extremely devastating. When motor vehicles collide with people on foot, the pedestrians always come out the losers. Victims frequently suffer serious brain injuries, spinal cord injuries or even wrongful death. If you or a loved one was injured or killed while walking in Florida, call Derrick Connell. One of our experienced attorneys can help you with your legal claim against the at-fault driver.
Pedestrians are frequently injured by careless and inattentive drivers. Injuries sustained as a result of a pedestrian accident can result in many serious injuries such as broken bones, traumatic head injuries, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis and sometimes even death. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a pedestrian accident caused by the negligence of another party, you are entitled to compensation for your medical costs, lost income, and pain and suffering.
We Hold Negligent Drivers Responsible For The Harm They Cause
Runners, joggers, skateboarders and other pedestrians have legal rights just like automobile drivers. In fact, they often have the right of way over motor vehicles. With a detailed knowledge of pedestrian injury law, the attorneys at Injured Brevard will work hard to hold reckless drivers responsible for their actions. Examples of driver negligence include:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Texting while driving
- Making illegal turns
- Ignoring red lights or stop signs
- Failing to stop for people in crosswalks
