Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Pedestrian accidents are known for being some of the most catastrophic accidents on our roads due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm. Between January and June 2019, it was estimated that approximately 368 people were killed in pedestrian accidents throughout the state of Florida. These accidents occur in the blink of an eye due to many different reasons including distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, and more. When a driver is not paying close attention to the roads around them, a pedestrian accident could occur in the blink of an eye. Those who have lost loved ones have many options moving forward.
