Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable parties on our roads who lose their lives in accidents every single year. Because they have no protection from harm, they are more likely to become seriously injured or killed when an accident occurs. Between January and June 2019, approximately 268 people were killed in Florida pedestrian accidents due to the reckless acts of others. Losing a loved one in a pedestrian accident can impact your life in many ways. Family members are urged to speak with an accident attorney who has their best interests in mind.
