Florida pedestrian accidents happen more commonly than in many other states. Out of these accidents, many will lead to serious injuries and even fatalities. From January to June 2019, it was reported that approximately 368 people were killed in pedestrian accidents throughout the state. Because pedestrians have no protection from harm, they are more likely to lose their lives in the event of an accident. If you have lost somebody you love in a collision, it is imperative that you seek the immediate help of an accident attorney.
