How Pedestrian Accidents Happen

Pedestrian accident injuries usually involve a careless driver who simply isn’t looking out for someone crossing the road. Due to the exposed nature of the pedestrian, these accidents pose life-threatening risks to walkers and joggers. It is common for a pedestrian accident to occur when a driver is:

  • Speeding
  • Not heeding traffic signals and signs
  • Not looking for pedestrian traffic when they should be
  • Distracted by texting, cell phones, radios and conversations with passengers
  • Impaired due to drugs or alcohol

As in many car accidents, a driver who strikes a pedestrian may try to avoid responsibility by trying to shift blame onto the pedestrian. The driver may claim that you jumped out in front of the car, that you crossed the street when you weren’t supposed to, or that you stepped into the intersection before the light turned green.

As a Florida personal injury lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, I can investigate your case to prove what really happened. Pedestrians usually have the right-of-way, meaning that drivers are responsible for yielding to pedestrians and not the other way around. I can help you prove the driver violated right-of-way laws. I can also collect the evidence needed to prove negligence.
