Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Out of every 100,000 people, approximately two pedestrians will lose their lives due to the negligence of drivers. Pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable parties on our roads who have few protections from harm. When these collisions occur, they are some of the most severe collisions on our roads that lead to some of the most catastrophic harm. It is imperative that victims speak with a pedestrian accident attorney immediately.
