Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Pedestrian accidents are always increasing on Florida roads and tend to lead to serious injuries. In 2012, Florida was rated third in states with the highest amounts of pedestrian accidents out of all other states in the U.S. Pedestrians are incredibly vulnerable parties on our roadways due to the fact that they have few protections from harm. It is imperative that victims speak with a skilled pedestrian accident attorney if they have been injured in one of these accidents.
