Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Between the years 2008 and 2017, it was reported that there were approximately 5,433 pedestrian fatalities in the state of Florida. These accidents are most likely to end in fatalities due to the fact that pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable parties on our roads. Individuals frequently travel from place to place on foot in Florida, which means that they are more likely to be victimized by careless and reckless passenger vehicle drivers.
